Well it looks like I am the product as well with Schwab. Schwab won't let me add to my SKT position. Tells me the symbol is invalid. But it is more than happy to accept a sell order.
I am a customer of TD Ameritrade, now owned by Schwab, and they will take orders on Tanger. I just killed an order on that pause where they make you reread the order for verification. I am not getting in on the action because somewhere along the line there are going to be bag holders and based upon my multiple years of investing I know all about being a bag holder. On the other hand my one son made a bundle on a couple of the other short squeeze things and sold out the same day. Good for him but not for me as at my age I can not afford a heart attack.

Yeah, I just tried again and now they are allowing it. when I posted it, they were giving me an "invalid symbol" error. I tried it about 5 times clicking on the symbol from my existing holdings page. The same trade page would let me put in a sell order without errors though.

On Vanguard you can buy gamestop, I didn't, but I took the robot to the final screen.
Free trade.

Game stop, down $214 or 62% now, full stampede to the door, bag holders are going to feel some pain, margin calls galore.

IT's not a stampede. Volume is only 25 million shares. It's outright manipulation and a halt every 10 mins or so. Half the brokers are not allowing people to buy. However, I just bought 100 shares back at $140 that I sold yesterday at $370. HAHAHAHAHA Thanks suckers. Also bought a PS4 and some games from who else but GameStop just now.:rocket:

There was only one way it could go when the brokers colluded to stop buys and only allow sells.

I wonder if the hedge funds beat the price down by selling shorts...

And you should have got the ps5

I have been using them the last 8 months. I run into this all the time. The buy/sell window opens but the symbol isn't recognized. They were down for almost an hour this morning.

Ah, I've never run into it before; but I usually put my buy/sell orders in after hours anyways before/after I finish work for the day.

Not available yet and I'm always a couple years behind the trend. No need for the expensive new stuff. I'm a cheap ass. Lol

I kinda figured that gap would get filled.. If the shorts didn't cover there, that was the last chance.

I did too, which gave me even more conviction to throw a buy in, I just had no idea if they'd actually let me.

let us not forget, the vipers have no qualms about changing the rules. a few recent examples

1. canceled trades

2. banned from shorting on downticks

3. margin reductions

4. billions/trillions taken from taxpayers to replace the lost capital AND lost profits

5. frbny buying assets at par that were only worth a small fraction of par

whatever it takes is what will happen. always does

the best trade of all may be betting against the 'little guys'

let us not forget again

How long until the Federal Reserve steps in to "print" GME shares to provide "liquidity"?

DISCLAIMER: I am long GME and AMC.

Who needs the federal reserve? Market makers conjure shares to "loan" for shorting from thin air...I'd not be the least bit surprised if they also provide...uh...liquidity to long transactions.

It might happen. We might not hear about it.
