  8. Hey @Tezzza, If you're receiving statements in the post you can stop by emailing us with a request to stop sending them.

Our email statements is how we do that. However, some clients have a separate folder in their emails to forward these. All the best
  9. Hey Cate, It is true that the regulators are looking to put a ban on Cryptos however there hasn't been enough information yet for us to take action. When we have more information we will reach out to client regarding their positions. I completely understand and closing positions isn't something we want to do but we will have to stay inline with regulator guidelines. Please know, we will keep you updated. All the best.
  10. This is absolutely correct, they do have an expiry. What I understood is that the position was opened and then instantly closed which shouldn't happen. But there is an expiry and if that's when it closed it's correct. @AbsurdK did you check the expiry before it opened. If not you can find it in the get info section next time. All the best
  11. Robinhood Grey market By taking a position on a grey market, you’re taking a position on a company’s potential market cap ahead of its initial public offering (IPO). The price of a grey market is a prediction of what the company’s total market capitalisation will be at the end of its first trading day. If you think the estimated value of the company is over- or under-priced, a grey market enables you to take advantage of this disparity before the shares are released publicly on the stock exchange. Why are traders interested in grey market stocks? Traders are interested in grey market stocks because it can be a way of taking advantage of movements in the company’s share price before it has actually listed. Also, any activity is usually taken as an indicator for the direction the stock price will take once it has listed. The pre-market price can be used to gauge the demand for the shares. How to trade grey market stocks. Grey market stocks are traded over-the-counter (OTC), which means that they are not offered by a stock exchange, but only by brokers and trading providers. By taking a position on a grey market stock, you’re taking a position on a company’s potential market capitalisation ahead of its IPO. If you think that the company will be worth more than the price indicated, you can buy the market. If you think that the price is an overvaluation, you can sell. When it comes to settling your trade, this can only be done once official trading of the share has begun. IG calculates the settlement price based on the official closing price of stock on after first day of trading, as reported by Bloomberg. We're LIVE with a grey market on the forthcoming Robinhood Grey market.

  12. Hey @CPerry, thanks for this post! Our minimum consideration for UK shares is £90. With regards to strategy I'm unable to help however there are loads of people on the community that would love to help. When buying stock you can't buy a percentage. When you bring up a deal ticket instead of typing the amount of shares you are able to change it to the amount of money you want to spend on the stock. On the share dealing account we don't offer access to indices (FTSE, S&P, Wall st e.c.t.). These markets can be traded on our leveraged accounts, which is why there's a red dot. If there's a green dot it means the market is open to trade. If there's a blue dot it means the market is closed. I hope this helps and if you need anything else let me know
  13. Hey, Thanks for your post. Card withdrawals usually take 2-4 working days but they are the slowest of all withdrawal process.

  15. Hey @AbsurdK, Thanks for your post. Sometimes if you're close to the deadline date the positions can close however if it's that close that it practically closed straight away that wouldn't be the case. Demo accounts can sometimes have issues as we put most of our resources into the live accounts however there were no known issues with them earlier this week. What I would suggest is emailing/ live chatting us so we can walk you through what happened. All the best
