When will IG allow back GME cash trading?


Recommended Posts

Dear all, and moderators,

IG emailed me informing GME, among other things, new share dealing on #GME can no longer be allowed come Monday.

Was this because GME was removed by 1. US SEC? or 2. UK FCA? or 3. by GME (Gamestop Corp) itself?

US SEC has not responded,

UK FCA said broker can refuse to offer trading facilities but did not say if such refusal can be unilateral meaning can't open but can close. - if I can close positions then who is opening them so I can close?

GME's customer support phone line had automatic music and voice informing to hold, so no help there 🤥

Any one know if IG will re-open trading on GME like some other brokers?

PRECISELY!!!! :):) HOLD GME, no matter what. Even if they try to screw us on buying, they can't force us to sell!

 

If you hold, just don't sell - it's scaremongering. I'd rather loose the couple of thousands I've invested than succumb to this bullying

Alot of short positions are due to be called in come today (Feb 1); hence why IG stopped allowing opening positions on GME but forcing long margins to meet 100% funds by 4pm UK, effectively forcing many longs to cover hence giving their boss a breather.

    • Those early days of DOGE and SHIB were wild!  Riding the memecoin wave was a fun and profitable experience.  Now, I see Bitget is about to list Biaoqing ($BIAO), a memecoin inspired by a popular Asian facial expression meme.  This "Pepe of China" concept has me intrigued.  Biaoqing faces are apparently all the rage in Asian group chats, similar to how emojis dominate Western communication.  With its unique cultural background and potential to fill the void for Eastern memes in the crypto space, it could be the next big thing.   I'm keeping a close eye on it's listing on the bitget cex.  This could be another memecoin moonshot, and you know I don't want to miss out.  What do you guys think?  Is Biaoqing the next big memecoin, or just a passing fad?     
    • The Love Power Ecosystem caught my attention recently, offering a unique blend of DeFi and NFTs. Built on decentralization, it empowers artists to showcase their work and earn through NFTs, fostering a strong community spirit.   What truly sets Love Power apart is its focus on positivity.  Their NFT collection, currently on OpenSea and Rarible, champions themes of love, beauty, and kindness.  The project's community-driven nature, with no VC involvement and proceeds benefiting artists, adds another positive layer.  The recent listing on Bitget with a bullish initial trend is another interesting development.  This project seems like a breath of fresh air in the NFT space. Anyone else out there following Love Power? What are your thoughts on this community-powered art movement?
    • Selling BNB in 2021 just before its remarkable surge and ATH had me wondering what could have been. While regrets ensued, I quickly channelled it to discover another CEX token with similar potential. Same year I got wind of BGB (Bitget native token) and keyed in–ready to launch at that time at mere price of $0.0585. Fast forward today, BGB currently sells around $1.10 slightly below its ATH of $1.48. Analysing BNB and BGB in tandem, I’ve come to understand that it takes quality token utilities for the later to replicate the former’s rally. For instance, the newly launched Bitget PoolX (stake to mine product) has spiked the demand of BGB, being a poplar asset to mine and earn on the platform. Not to mention other existing products with BGB at their core. The consistent trading volume increase of BGB has also been another catalyst, as the demand and supply keeps growing, the price keeps responding accordingly in the upward trajectory. Additionally, it's no secret that investors do look out for sustainability. Just like the trust BNB & Binance commands, BGB market cap and the robust nature of its parent exchange, Bitget, has been another conviction for investors.  Factoring all these, most experts believe BGB has the potential to reach $5 in the nearest future. It remains to be seen though; one thing for sure is– holding BGB has cushioned my regrets from selling BNB prematurely a few years back!
