    Got the below mail from IG last night. Very frustrating. I'm sure this will force some people to take a loss. Absolute p**s take.

     

    What broker are people looking at taking their stocks to after this? 

     

    "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.

    Which stocks are no longer available for share dealing?
    With immediate effect, you can no longer invest in the following companies and ETFs with IG:
    Aphria (US) Aurora Cannabis (US)
    Bod Australia Cann Global
    CannTrust Canopy Growth (US)
    Corbus Pharmaceuticals Creso Pharma
    Cronos Group (US) Elixinol Global
    eSense-Lab ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF
    HEXO Corp Innovative Industrial Properties
    Insys Therapeutics Lifespot Health
    New Age Beverages Stemcell United
    Tilray
    What will happen to my existing shareholdings?
    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 you have not sold your shares by 12am midnight on 24 May, we will have to sell them on your behalf at the prevailing price and return the funds to you.

    Please note that, given the current uncertainty, we cannot transfer your share dealing positions to alternative brokers. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes you.
    We're here to help
    If you have any questions about this or need assistance with your account, our highly trained client services team is available by phone or email 24 hours a day from 8am Saturday to 10pm Friday.

    Kind regards

    OK well that's very disappointing. I'm from Australia so I will have to find a another broker. Anyone have any recommendations ??

    Yes you can short on the spreadbetting platform.....interestingly I was only yesterday thinking is it viable to trade the price of an ETF (longterm trade!) rather than invest in it to avoid any future tax liability (as profits from spread betting are tax free).....I live in IRE and tax liability on ETFs is very complicated (and large!)......Good luck anyway!

    Thanks David,

    I'm from Australia.

    Appreciate your feedback

    @h7,

    I am from the UK. May I ask which country you are from? Is it the US?

    I could not find Waitr Holdings Inc on IG's UK Spread Betting platform.

    Is it is a small cap, micro cap or nano cap?

    I just did a quick search and the articles I was reading is suggesting that this is a stock which is about to blow up. Now I do not know if that is true but are you looking to also short this?

    Hey.

    Thanks for trying to help me out.

    I'm From Australia and we can only use the Australian IG Site unfortunately.

    Apprec your Help

  4. Hi there,

    Myself and a few other IG users that I introduced have issues with the Share platform.

    So far every stock we have entered to buy on the Share Portfolio has the same issue - the is no GTC function.

    Examples are as follows.... there are hundreds more.

    Australian stocks.

    Telstra - No GTC available 

    ANZ - No GTC available

    NASDAQ

    Netflicks (NFLX)- No GTC available

    Eagle Bulk shipping (EGLE) - No GTC available

    NYSE

    Bank of America (BAC) - No GTC available

    Genco Shipping & Trading (GNK)   - No GTC available

    Is it me?  Am I logged into the wrong share platform ?

    Can you tell me if this is a permanent issue with all your stocks?

    Could you possible tell me which stock does have a GTC function on the share porfolio so I can investigate.

    Regards

    My Account keeps freezing on sat morning, has anyone else experienced this and can I  execute an order via email considering the circumstances

    Hey Guys,

    The issue I have is not being able to input orders on the new platform on  Saturday & Sunday (13 & 14 Oct).

    The message on the order input screen comes up as "This market is not open to trade"

    We don't want to trade. We just want to input a bunch of orders.

    To get around this I put my orders through the old platform and it worked fine.

    Go figure.

    Regards

  7. Hey there,

    I don't have any GTC on the share platform. Yes I do Have GTC in the CFD platform.

    The only choices I get in the Share platform is  - Limit Day 

                                                                                         - excecute & eliminate

                                                                                        - Fill or Kill

    There is no GTC (Good till cancel)
