One way to search would be to google list companies involved in production and associated products then see if they or their parent companies are listed on IG;

That's what everyone else wants to know!

I tried to top up my aurora position and I found out that I couldnt, IG didnt even bother to give me a prior warning of their decision to discontinue this stock. Common sense and respect for the investor would normally ensure that IG investors who hold these shares would be notified!

At present IG is reviewing their decision whether to continue with cannibis and such related stocks.

The only explanation they can give is that quote "because of the political landscape around them" to start with quite strange english and a very poor vague response. When requesting to transfer my stocks to another broker this option is refused. At present we cannot buy or transfer just sell,while this matter is resolved. IG have their investors over a barrel until this matter is resolved. No deadline for a decision has been announced. Meanwhile position holders will get tired of waiting and will be forced to sell to close their positions without knowing the real reason for not wanting to deal these shares.If IG doesnt approve of can stocks then simple allow people to transfer them to other brokers who want to deal these stocks. I dont see how this would disadvantage IG. I feel sorry for stock holders who bought cheap, this would be wiped out if you are forced to sell.

So the witless cretins at IG no longer allow us to trade these stocks but are happy for us to spread bet or trade cfds and are creating their own index of them which we can trade. Will be moving my account to a better broker

Such a joke - below the email I have received 2 days ago.

What does evolving political and regulatory landscape surrounding recreational cannabis-related securities even mean? Surely regulations are being weakened everywhere around the world right now and not tightened, so unsure why IG went with this decision.

Does anyone else have any further details on this?

Can anyone recommend a good broker to specifically invest in Cannabis stocks? 

We no longer offer share dealing on recreational cannabis stocks

Due to the evolving political and regulatory landscape surrounding recreational cannabis-related securities, we have decided to stop offering share dealing on the below cannabis stocks.

Please note that CFD trading and spread betting on cannabis stocks and our soon-to-be-launched Cannabis Index will not be affected. You can continue to access these markets as normal.

Hi all,

Just to give you some more information about why the decision has been made by IG to stop offering Cannabis stocks for share dealing clients:

IG has become aware of various financial institutions performing reviews of the regulatory and political implications of offering Cannabis stocks in the UK with a recreational link, and because of this and IG's own internal review the stocks listed above are no longer appropriate for IG's risk appetite. 

Therefore there has been a business decision to take action as quickly as possible but within the legal allowances detailed in IG's Customer Agreement. 

Regarding why we can continue to offer these stocks on leverage accounts, the reason is that there is additional certainty with regards to derivatives referencing the underlying stocks, and as IG uses swaps to hedge our clients' leveraged trades with us, we will not be engaged in the physical trading of recreational linked cannabis stocks.

Any idea if we can still trade Cannabis shares on other website. Just wondering if others are planning to stop trading like IG. I have few shares with IG which were bought at higher price as of now. If I sell them now then I will be loosing quite a lot. Please suggest.

Unfortunately I am unable to advise on other companies dealing practices, however in the interest of forum transparency other Community members are more than welcome to have their say as some already have (in accordance with our terms of service and within reason of course). I do know, however, that a number of other providers have taken the same action as we have. I'd recommend independent research before taking action. 

When it comes to 'moving' stock we are unfortunately unable to facilitate a stock transfer and you can only sell to close with us when it comes to Cannabis stocks on a share dealing (and/or ISA account in the UK). Our CFDs and Spread Betting leverage accounts remain unaffected by this decision.   

To shift your exposure from IG would therefore require you to sell on IG and buy on an alternative brokers platform. One possible option to reduce market movements / fluctuations in the individual share price over this period and reflect exposure on this new broker is to set simultaneous orders in the same auction with IG and the new broker.

Hi @rohantigcomm - you can still sell to close on IG, however we are unable to maintain your exposure or transfer stock to alternative brokers. You would have to buy on an alternative broker if you wish to maintain your exposure to the stock.  If you are invested in the affected companies with IG, you’ll need to sell your shares no later than 11.59pm UK time on Thursday 23 May 2019

If the UK adopts a sane cannabis policy (which is probably never will) will that decision be reversed?

I mean seriously ... how uptight and prudish can you be?  Trading tobacco stocks is fine even though tobacco kills millions of people?

We periodically review all assets and form business decisions based on the available information at the time.

What I do not understand is why we where not informed before this took place, and also why we can not transfer our shares to a new broker.

Hargreaves Lansdown will allow you to trade these stocks but IG will not let you transfer.

Shame on you IG, and you wonder why your stock price is going down

Any advice welcome Thx

I bought the BOD stock at much higher price than the current price. If I have to be forced to sell them I would suffer a big lost. Will IG do compensation for this!???  And how about the cost of transaction fee? 

IG had real data of stock price which was good, but then they said you need to pay if you want too see real time data feed; Later they said they would charge you if your account is inactive for 3 months. Now they stop the trading for some stocks no matter how big lost the investors will have and they are doing this while no other platform is doing the same.  IG, could you think, at least a bit, about  your users?

I am also in this position with my Tilray stock down 40% - I have received the same lacklustre response from IG quoting their customer agreement terms - am hoping the Financial Ombudsmen will step in and force IG to either let me transfer my shares to another platform or refund me my losses!

If anyone has further progress please post.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure - Impulse for wave (A) Position - Wave 5 of  (A) Direction - Wave (B) Details -  Wave 5 of (A) could be completed with an ending diagonal. Pullback for (B) should begin afterwards. Since March 2024, wheat prices have been recovering and extending higher. However, a slowdown and a potential downward correction may occur in the coming days. Despite this, the overall recovery trend is expected to continue afterward. The initial recovery from the low of 523 in March is projected to advance towards the 840-940 range in the medium term. Nevertheless, the long-term bearish trend could resume in the last quarter of the year.   Examining the daily chart, we observe a bearish impulse wave that began at 1364 in March 2022, culminating in an impulse wave that reached 523 in March 2024, thus concluding a two-year sell-off. The subsequent recovery from 523 is nearing the completion of an impulse wave. This suggests that we should anticipate at least an (A)-(B)-(C) bullish correction continuing towards higher price levels, likely in the 842-942 range, which corresponds to the 38.2-50% Fibonacci retracement zone. It is also possible for prices to move even higher. This bullish corrective cycle is projected to extend until the last quarter of the year. For now, the focus should be on the completion of wave (A) and the potential for a retracement in wave (B).     The H4 chart reveals that wave (A) is nearing its completion, forming an ending diagonal for wave 5. A bearish retracement for wave (B) is anticipated to start soon. The prudent strategy at this juncture is to wait for wave (B) to complete before considering long positions in wave (C), provided wave (B) does not breach the 523 low.   In summary, while wheat prices have been on an upward trajectory since March 2024, we may soon experience a short-term correction. However, the broader recovery trend is expected to persist, with prices potentially reaching the 840-940 range. Traders should monitor the progression of wave (A) and prepare for the likely retracement in wave (B). By closely observing the key level of 523, traders can ensure that the bearish wave (B) does not invalidate the recovery trend. If wave (B) remains above this level, the subsequent wave (C) could present a favorable opportunity for long positions, aligning with the projected medium-term bullish correction before the resumption of the long-term bearish trend later in the year.
