Which brokers are still offering GameStop and AMC shares?

Lots of brokers stopped trading GameStop or AMC Entertainment after 27 January. Here's the latest from Australian platforms.

GameStop (GME) and AMC Entertainment (AMC) have seen increased volatility in recent weeks fuelled by a social media buying frenzy. In response to the unprecedented jump in trading volumes, some share trading platforms have experienced outages or suspended trading on GameStop, AMC and others. We've put together this list of providers we've reviewed on our site with the latest information.

Please note that as this is a fast-moving situation these circumstances could change at any time at the discretion of the brokers. However we'll try our best to keep this as updated as possible.

Important: Share trading can be financially risky and the value of your investment can go down as well as up. “Standard brokerage” fee is the cost to trade $1,000 or less of ASX-listed shares and ETFs without any qualifications or special eligibility. If ASX shares aren’t available, the fee shown is for US shares. Where both CHESS sponsored and custodian shares are offered, we display the cheapest option.
