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?

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.

Well?? Can IG please let me know what I do if I can't trade my Cann Global shares please?

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.

    • Early Morning Call: Shell warns on earnings as refining margins drop The oil price is up after OPEC+ delivered a 2-million barrel per day cut, while Shell warns on earnings as it sees a drop in refining margins.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  Macro overview US equity markets consolidated yesterday after two days of strong gains. The Dow Jones fell by 0.14%, and the Nasdaq ended the session 0.25% lower. Overnight the session was mixed in the APAC region. In Australia, trade surplus narrowed to a six-month low - A$8.32 billion - in August, below market forecasts of a A$10.1 billion surplus. Exports grew by 3%, while imports increased 4% compared to last month. For San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly, the path has been very clear: "we are going to raise the rate until we get into restrictive territory, and then we are going to hold it there" until inflation comes down closer to 2%. In an Interview with Bloomberg yesterday Daly reiterated the Fed's commitment to restore price stability, and it particularly waiting for two important sets of data. She hopes tomorrow’s non-farm payrolls (NFP) will confirm the start of a hiring slowdown. Earlier this week, JOLTs openings fell to their lowest level since June 2021. Current expectations for non-farm payrolls are 250,000 job creations in September. If actual figures were to match that forecast, it should be the lowest number of job creations since December 2020. The San Francisco Fed president would also like to see next week's CPI showing underlying price pressures either stabilising or falling. She could be disappointed there. If the headline figure is expected to fall to 8.1%, economists see core CPI rise accelerating to 6.5%. The Fed is expected to deliver a fourth straight 75-basis-point rate hike when it meets early next month. Equity overview Elsewhere on the equity market, Shell warns this morning that its third quarter (Q3) profits will be weakened by a sharp drop in refining margins and expects "significantly" weaker earnings from natural gas trading. N Brown posted an 82.4% drop in adjusted profit before tax and revised its profit guidance down. Imperial Brands announced £1 billion share buyback programme, and says that total capital returns in full-year 23 (FY23), including ordinary dividends and share buybacks, are expected to exceed £2bn. Levi Strauss & Company is set to post its third quarter earnings after market close tonight. Analysts anticipate earnings of 37 cents per share, gathering pace after the 29 cents reported three months ago, but some 23% lower than the same quarter a year ago. Revenue is forecast to increase by 6.7% to $1.6bn. Levi Strauss can count on the strength of its brand, but like many other retailers, it has to face supply chain issues, in an adverse economic environment. Investors will be particularly attentive to the group guidance, which at the moment stands at $1.50-$1.56 for the full year. Constellation Brands Inc is poised to release its second quarter (Q2) earnings before the US opening bell. The maker of Corona beer is expected to report an 18% increase in earnings per share to $2.78. Revenue should reach $2.50bn. Commodities Oil prices are holding at the new three-week high set yesterday. OPEC+ agreed on a two million barrels per day (bpd) cut yesterday, saying it was an adequate response in a context of rising interest rates and weakening global economy. US president Joe Biden called the decision "short-sighted" and said he would continue to assess whether to release further strategic oil stocks to lower prices. The next OPEC+ meeting will take place on 4 December. OPEC+ will move to meet every six months instead of monthly meetings. The EIA confirmed the decline across the board announced by the API on Tuesday. Crude inventories fell by 1.4 million barrels last week. U.S. gasoline stocks shrank by 4.7mn barrels, and distillate stockpiles fell by 3.4Mln barrels has context menu     This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Stock markets remain in a more bullish pattern after the losses of recent weeks, and Asian indices made some more progress, albeit in a more tentative fashion. Oil prices remain on an upward path following OPEC's move to cut output by two million barrels per day, pushing prices to their highest level since mid-September. Stronger data in the form of the ADP report and the ISM non-manufacturing PMI caused a wobble in stocks, which have rallied on fresh hopes that the Fed will pivot away from its hawkish policy in the near future. Today is a quieter day, with just the UK construction PMI and weekly jobless claims, and the focus is now shifting to tomorrow's non-farm payroll report.   
    • Scallops Chart Pattern are J-shaped, inverted J-shaped, or mirror J-shaped continuation patterns that appear often during trending markets. This pattern has a steep momentum and a rounded bottom or top. The structure is pretty smooth at first, then the market begins to rush up with significant momentum, or vice versa. Scallop patterns appear less frequently than other continuation patterns such as flags or pennants, yet they are among the most stable forms.   Types of Scallops Chart Patterns There are four types of Scallops, two of which suggest bullish movement, while the other two imply bearish movement.   Ascending Scallop Pattern Inverted Ascending Scallop Pattern Descending Scallop Pattern Inverted Descending Scallop Pattern Read More -   Scallops Chart Pattern
