Robinhood Stock Trading Restrictions
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP (MWA) is investigating Robinhood’s January 25, 2021 decision to restrict trading on GameStop stock. That decision appears to have caused GameStop’s stock price to tumble, likely costing Robinhood customers hundreds of millions of dollars.
Only five days after new retail investors and day traders flooded the markets causing the stocks of struggling businesses like GameStop to skyrocket, Robinhood and other investment brokerage companies began restricting and halting the trade of stocks for these companies. As a result, the value of these stocks which at one point increased up to 1,300% went into freefall. In one day, GameStop shares toppled 44%. MWA is investigating why Robinhood would make a decision that would harm its customers. This decision appears to blatantly benefit large institutional investors and hedge fund managers at the expense of individual investors, though Robinhood has only claimed, “Amid significant market volatility, it’s important as ever that we help customers stay informed.”

We Are Formulating a Plan Against Robinhood.
While we have a strong reputation as a class action firm, we are confident this would be a difficult class action case to bring. Robinhood’s contracts include clauses and waivers that could be used to prevent a court proceeding and a class action case. However, we believe Robinhood must be held accountable for their actions. Currently, we are considering other options for litigation.
We are investigating the case in earnest and are seeking those who have been affected by this decision to share their experiences.
