Can't agree more. High basic commission, non existence customer service, app crashed for few days in a row.

Very disappointing, and I will movie to another site once I find a good alternative. They actively despise and loathe their customers, just as I now actively despise and loathe them. Long term I will do my best to make people around me switch to other sites as well.

this restriction might also be illegal collusion and market manipulation on their part, and I will happily join a class action lawsuit.

Haven't and won't trade in GME, but I'm incensed by this. I'm closing my account (not that they make it easy..) - there are plenty of other brokerages. Very disappointing, I liked IG.

Yet they allow you to SELL and close out your positions. What will that do to the overall market price of AMC and GME? Well obviously if we can only sell the the price will go down down, allowing these greedy hedge funds to exit their short positions without taking too much of a hit.

You have 2 choices, 1. Sell your shares back to the hedges, just like they want, or 2. Hold and watch them wet the bed, eventually having to buy at the price WE SET and us little guys make some money. 

Also, leave IG they don't deserve your business after this blatant act of market manipulation. 

This is truly disgusting behaviour to protect your hedge fund buddies. Shocking. I hope IG get investigated by the FCA

Guest Disgusting behavior.

Disgusting behaviour from IG. Limiting stocks people bought with their own hard earned money. I am not borrowing stocks like some companies out that, I am buying it with my own hard earned money.

This is blatant market manipulation as you’ve said!!

I thought IG were one of the good ones (compared to IBKR who are bad nuts), and was literally just about to transfer a 500k trading account to them!

I agree to all the comments and also felt frustrated the platform online & App "conveniently"  went offline for 3 days on the trot exactly when the US opened.

We all know that Robinhood have had to reverse their restrictions/limits on deemed volatile stock so why has IG now decide to restrict retail investors - will probably get the same BS about protecting retail investors!!!

I am a bit pissed off with this constant rule changes against retail investors - EC ruling/higher margins/no Crypto dealing/restricted trading/even higher margins of 100% to name a few!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I am looking for a new broker who will allow more fair dealing plus I want premarket trading and prepaid to pay a higher price for a better service!!

Does anybody know a broker who offers the above? is IB anygood?

IB are absolute criminals.

Can you believe what you’re hearing here???

    • Who could have guessed no jab no job in care homes would lead to this?   'Bed blocking soars as care homes struggle: Forced vaccination back fires. Do we have a competent government?'   Dr Anthony Hinton @TonyHinton2016    'Anyone who knows the NHS at all could have predicted this would happen. With no care home beds for discharge NHS becomes overwhelmed - even before winter kicks in.'   Dr Clare Craig @ClareCraigPath    Meanwhile vaccine ADE, 'Implementing mass vaccination in the middle of a pandemic may create evolutionary pressure encouraging troublesome variants to emerge. This view has been widely "debunked" in the media, but without reference to any research.'  1nPr0p0rt10n2 @1Pr0p0rt10n2   The Greatest Failure in the History of Public Health: The Case for the Prosecution ⋆ Brownstone Institute   Then there's the vaccine's impact on our natural immune system.   'There’s enough data to ask the following. Do these mRNA vaccines, which create more superspreaders due to immunosuppression & poor immune cell maturation worsen populations responses to respiratory viruses?'  Raphael Sirtoli @raphaels7     'My team just crunched some numbers: RSV 100X its summer 2019 rate Adenovirus 8X it’s summer 2019 rate Parainfluenza 18X HMPV 10X Rhino/Enterovirus 6X Seasonal Coronavirus 15X No one is talking about this. Our immune systems are being compromised.'   (Building A Better Story @LightOneFire).   .          
    • Amazing; Covid causes inflation - only solution is 100% vaxxed.  Covid causes supply chain disruption - only solution is 100% vaxxed.  Covid causes all your other health problems - only solution is 100% vaxxed.      
    • Latest PHE data and vaccine effectiveness continues to drop so now all but 2 age groups have a higher number of vaxxed than unvaxxed with a positive test rate. Both groups are the young who have the lowest risk of severe illness from covid. Covid infection in vaxxed 40-49 yr olds double the unvaxxed rate - The Conservative Woman   To continue on the ivermectin theme, months ago there was a campaign to donate the expensive vaccines to the 3rd world as the drug companies had a 'no returns policy' included in the govt contracts but it all tailed off.  Perhaps the 3rd world didn't want the vaccines given the high adverse reactions, waning efficacy and that they had something better. India crushed it's recent wave with govt distributed ivermectin blister packs in June, similar story in Mexico and in parts of Africa where ivermectin is used as a prophylactic for many parasitic and viral diseases covid never took off at all. (see charts)
