Does anyone know what happens to US stocks owned through IG if they become delisted? Do I still own the stocks through the issuer (IG) but just can't sell them?

Hi @marksiqi

What happens if the stock I am trading delists?

If you have an open leveraged position on a stock that delists, we’ll close your position at a level of zero and typically open a new position – called a ‘proceeds line’ – on your behalf which is untradeable, has no price and brings no value to your account. Once the company confirms there is no return to shareholders, which could take years, we will close your proceeds line position at the level of zero.

However, we won’t start this procedure as soon as a company announces it is delisting. The stock status will first need to be reviewed by our corporate actions and risk departments.

If you own shares in a company that delists on your IG leveraged account, we can close the position completely upon request and thus waive your right to potential future proceeds. On the other hand, if you hold those shares on your IG share dealing account, we can't close the position. This is because when you trade on leverage, you're trading over-the-counter with us - so we're able to take care of things like this in-house. However, when you buy or sell shares in a company, you're trading on an exchange that we have no control over.

Thanks MongilG,

 

If I own the shares via the IG share trading account what happens to the shares then? Do I still own the shares through IG but am unable to buy or sell over the counter?

Hi @marksiqi

Thanks for the query. 

The shares will remain on your account until there is either a settlement or they are deemed worthless in the underlying market. Any delisted stock cannot be removed until this is replicated from our broker and we match their bookings accordingly across all clients. 

All the best,

Hi @marksiqi

Thanks for the response. 

After a delisting you still remain a shareholder of the company, however you can no longer sell shares on exchange. You would need to sell them over the counter (OTC). 

We operate under the custodial model. The shares are held on your behalf by our broker Citibank. Our broker is ultimately responsible for admin related to voluntary and involuntary corporate actions.

In your example above you would either need to transfer the shares to another broker that can sell them OTC or they would remain on your account up until there is either a settlement or they are deemed worthless by our broker. In this case we would replicate and match what our broker has done. 

I hope that helps, 

Anda

    • Prepare for market shifts with the upcoming US core PCE data release. Understand its effects on FX markets, the US dollar, and major pairs through our in-depth analysis of EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and gold.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Commodities United States dollar Gold EUR/USD GBP/USD Written by: Diego Colman | Market Analyst, New York   Publication date: Friday 23 February 2024 06:50 Market participants will be on tenterhooks in the coming days ahead of a high-impact item on the US calendar next week: the release of core PCE data – the Fed’s favourite inflation gauge. This crucial event on the agenda is likely to stir volatility within the FX space, so the retail crowd needs to be vigilant and ready for unpredictable price swings. In terms of consensus estimates, core PCE is projected to have risen by 0.4% in January, bringing the annual rate down to 2.7% from 2.9% previously, a small but welcome step in the right direction. Traders, however, shouldn't be taken aback if the numbers surprise to the upside, echoing the patterns and trends seen in last week's CPI and PPI reports for the same period. Interest rates and inflation: steering the course of the US dollar and commodities Sticky price pressures in the economy, together with solid job creation and hot wage growth, could compel the Fed to delay the start of its easing cycle to the second half of the year, resulting in only modest adjustments once the process gets underway. Such a scenario could push interest rate expectations in a more hawkish direction compared to their current status. Higher interest rates for longer could mean upward pressure on US Treasury yields over the coming weeks – an outcome poised to benefit the US dollar and reinforce its bullish momentum seen in 2024. With the greenback biased to the upside, pairs such as EUR/USD and GBP/USD will face difficulties in maintaining positive performance in the short term. Gold prices could also struggle. Fundamentals aside now, the subsequent section of this article will revolve around examining the technical outlook for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and gold prices. Here, we'll explore critical price thresholds that traders need to keep on their radar to prepare potential strategies in the upcoming sessions. EUR/USD technical analysis EUR/USD has regained lost ground this week but has yet to fully recover its 200-day simple moving average, currently at 1.0830. Traders should keep a close eye on this indicator in the coming days, bearing in mind that a push above it could give way to a rally towards 1.0890 and possibly even 1.0950. On the flip side, if prices get rejected to the downside from current levels and begin a rapid descent, technical support emerges at 1.0725. followed by 1.0700. From this point onwards, additional weakness may prompt market focus to shift towards 1.0650. EUR/USD daily chart   Source: TradingView GBP/USD technical analysis GBP/USD consolidated to the upside on Thursday but fell short of clearing its 50-day simple moving average at 1.2680. Bulls may find it challenging to surpass this technical hurdle; however, a breakout could result in a move toward trendline resistance at 1.2725. Conversely, if sellers stage a comeback and trigger a market reversal, the first line of defense against a bearish attack lies around the 1.2600 mark. Additional losses beyond this point may create the right conditions for a slide toward trendline support and the 200-day simple moving average at 1.2560. GBP/USD daily chart   Source: TradingView Gold price technical analysis Gold rose modestly on Thursday but hit a roadblock around $2,030, a key resistance zone where a downtrend line aligns with the 50-day simple moving average. Sellers need to defend this area vigorously to prevent bulls from reasserting dominance; failure to do so could result in a rally toward $2,065. On the other hand, if sentiment reverses in favor of sellers and prices begin to retreat, support can be identified at $2,005, positioned near the 100-day simple moving average. Further downside pressure may then bring $1,990 into focus, followed by $1,995.

    • Explore the potential rebound of the Japanese yen in 2024 as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) considers rate hikes. Analysing the yen against USD, EUR, and GBP, we uncover the implications of BoJ's policy changes.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Bank of Japan Japanese yen Euro USD/JPY EUR/JPY Written by: Diego Colman | Market Analyst, New York   Publication date: Friday 23 February 2024 07:30 The Japanese yen has weakened significantly against its top peers in 2024, owing to the Bank of Japan's (BoJ) dovish stance. While major central banks globally have aggressively raised rates over the past two years to combat inflation, the BoJ has remained steadfast, maintaining highly accommodative policy settings. However, the era of significantly relaxed monetary policy in Japan may be nearing an end, potentially as early as the early months of the second quarter. This shift could mark the beginning of a sustained upswing for the yen, suggesting the worst may be behind us. Wage negotiations spark hope: a turning point for Japan's monetary policy If annual compensation negotiations between major Japanese firms and unions, expected to conclude around mid-March, result in substantial pay increases above 4.0%, policymakers might gain the confidence needed in the sustainability of wage growth to finally move away from negative interest rates. We will learn more about the BoJ's monetary policy outlook in the coming weeks, but the indicators seem to be aligning for a rate hike in late March or, more likely, April. As markets begin to anticipate this scenario, the yen may gradually start to rally. USD/JPY technical analysis USD/JPY climbed on Thursday, approaching resistance at 150.85. If gains pick up pace in the coming days and break above the 151.00 handle, buyers may get emboldened to initiate a bullish assault on last year’s high near 152.00. On the flip side, if sellers return and drive the exchange rate lower, technical support appears around 149.70, followed by 148.90. Further losses from this point onward may usher in a pullback towards 147.50 in the near term. USD/JPY daily chart     Source: TradingView EUR/JPY technical analysis EUR/JPY extended its advance on Thursday, steadily approaching last year’s peak around the 164.00 handle. Bears need to strongly defend this ceiling; failure to do so might lead to an upward push toward trendline resistance at 165.00. In case of a bearish reversal, support is anticipated at 161.50 and 160.70 thereafter. On further weakness, all eyes will be on the 100-day simple moving average located near 159.60. Below this level, the 50-day simple moving average could act as the next shield against additional losses. EUR/JPY daily chart   Source: TradingView GBP/JPY technical analysis GBP/JPY rallied on Thursday, hitting a fresh multi-year high above 190.50. With bullish momentum intact, additional upside potential is likely in the short term, with the next resistance threshold at 192.50, followed by 196.00, marking the highs of 2015. Conversely, should the upward momentum wane, resulting in a market retracement, support is seen around the psychological 190.00 level, and subsequently at 188.50. Further down, bears are likely to set their sights on the 50-day simple moving average in the vicinity of 185.50.
