It's pretty obvious who they are looking out for and it's not their customers. Time to shop around.

Would love to hear from IG on this. If it's a clearing house issue why not restrict BOTH BUYING AND SELLING, wait for the clearing house to catch up, tap credit whatever needs to be done. But only all

Guest Moving from IG.

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.

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???

    • personally, I hardly ever go short. I invest for the long term and I spread my investment over time. So when it goes down, I keep buying.
    • I already answered on Reddit, but I am happy to share also the answer here 😉 As indicated on GraniteShares’ website, “Securityholders will own fewer ETP Securities than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, the value of a Securityholder’s investment will not change […]. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash […].” Note that each is supported by example on the website. The amount invested will not drop from $17,850 to $8,500 after of the reverse split. It will not change, saved for eventual fractional securities. The objective of the product remains the same as well and its performance will not be affected by the reverse split. As a reminder 3STS tracks, excluding fees and other adjustments, the performance of the Solactive Daily Leveraged 3x Short Tesla Inc Index that seeks to provide -3 times the daily performance of Tesla Inc shares.
