Same, all of a sudden heaps of stocks are non leveraged only, what’s the point of having a cfd account if 90% of the shares I want are non leveraged only 

There have been some stocks restricted through out the week. I will pass on information to our senior teams regarding community post so thank you for letting me know your thoughts on this. 

All the best and sorry for the inconvenience.

Well, its not rocket science

If a punter with negative balance protection buy a stock on margin and IG buy the stock to hedge the bet, what happens if the stock go down to zero?

And if IG takes the other side (not hedging) and the stock goes up 200%?

Add then whats happens when the market "crash" (flash crash) and everybody tries to sell the same stock at the same time

Its all about risk

"“Retail investors are such an important part of the financial markets, but until now have largely been ignored because they tended to buy and sell in isolation,” he warned. “Now they are gathering together and realising how much power they have as a collective. GameStop will not be the last share traded in this way. Interesting times ahead.”"

IG, Instead of having this "Stock only available for non leveraged trading" come up after you have filled out an order ticket, have it come up as soon as you start the ticket by clicking on the Sell or Buy button.  Same as you do with the "You cannot sell this market to open" warning.

Guest non leverage option?

Indeed it would be really good to know this early. Is there no option to take the trade without leveraged money involved?

Hi,

The only way to place a deal with 100% leverage meaning paying full price, is under a share dealing account.

You will pay the actual value of the deal.

Same what is the point of having leverage on your platform and not been able to use it on nothing, I can sense this will loose them a lot of custom, they got the best platform setup and rewan it with this set up, I’ll be leaving waste of time the whole thing

Hi Gaz,

Using leverage gives you access to Shares, Forex, Crypto, Commodities, Bonds and rates, ETFs, Options ans Digital 100s. It is possible that some low cap markets are only available on Share dealing accounts only or the stocks are unborrowable, but IG offers a vast range of markets that wouldn't be available without leverage.

All the best - Arvin

Checked with help desk. 
 

The message means the stock is not available for Spreadbet.

 

however you can buy it through share dealing account.

When is IG going to implement stop losses on Share Trading accounts?  It doesn't seem to be an issue for platforms that use Citibank as the underlying broker.  I understand the issue with the current design of the platform but a possible option could be a CONTRA equity account.  If a buy/sell is executed that action could then call/trigger a separate action to create a credit/debit adjustment effectively and once closed a call/trigger would then do the reverse and balance the CONTRA account back to nil.

Hi @angela2v,

You can add stops to a share dealing order:

Let us know if it helps.
