Trading restrictions on GameStop and AMC

Recommended Posts

This is unacceptable. illegal.

Both Robinhood and T212 tried this and they failed. all the user base is leaving after this week.

I thought IG incorruptible platform. GME showed which platforms to trust and which to avoid.

Received an email from IG that they restrict buying these stocks.



Why is it not allowed (other than it hurts big boys)?

Market is volatile but still you're allowed to trade other stocks and even close out if you own these stocks but just can't buy them.  Is it even legal to restrict retail traders arbitrarily?

Trading 212 tried this the other day too. I have complained and suggest others do the same.

Here is a link to a letter outlining what FCA rules they are breaking.

Makes me want to hold even more due to this shady practice.

Great, thanks for sharing the template and link!

We really need to take this to FCA to stop the market manipulation by these platforms.

I've submitted a complaint to the abuse team at FCA. I suggest everyone effected does the same for visibility.

VJJHC, thanks for the great link! I am very not happy with IG. Does anyone know which broker still allows unrestricted GME trading?

PS. HOLDING now matter what!

Disappointing... I was willing to put up with the platform crashes.

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
