Important: new positions restricted on GameStop and AMC

What you have described is even WORSE!!

Allowing selling only on an equity is pure market manipulation!

What could possibly be the rationale for this — WHO has made this decision at IG? On what basis?

I am reporting you to ASIC.

I phoned IG today, if it's any consolation they're not lending your shares out for short selling either. The only people selling GME right now are short sellers, selling shares they're borrowing for the third time, IG put a stop to that lending, as I am sure a lot of brokers are doing, whether they have shares to sell to retail or not.

Another way of looking at it, GME had ~250% short interest last I looked, that means there is something like negative 100 million shares available to buy right now, if you or I were selling, those shares will go towards getting the available shares back to zero, so there still wouldn't be any available to buy.

I expect NYSE will halt trading on GME some times this week, maybe tonight. They have to, the short sellers debt racking up is unpayable.

This is an appalling decision. This is platform is about to provide access to some part of the markets to retail investors. Why is it preventing purchase of GME and AMC. if you want to protect your customers base remove leverage but the rest is our decision.

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
