After hours sometimes does not trade and NASDAQ fees?


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Two questions:

1.Sometimes afterhours I set a buy order at a price that matches current price but it just sites there, even if I increase my bid just stays there, share is TSLA, any ideas what causes this? It would be odd to think there is noone wanting to sell, am I doing something wrong? I have bought fine after hours similarly but sometimes it just sits there ?

2.I've converted my funds > USD and when I trade and check my statement for there are no fees for trading, is this normal and correct? NB I have manually converted the currency. Oh yes there is a small fee of $0.xx but no major fee? Very happy about this but the help says if trading on NASDAQ in USD there should be a minimum fee of $15 but I don't see this anywhere ??? Am I missing something obvious.

Sadly the support help are not very helpful ūüė쬆going in circles here.

If you're selling them on a share dealing account and trading before 14:30 (GMT) or after 21:00 GMT you have to have the limit (all sessions) order type. If this is not selected they you're order instructions are set to only work in the main market 14:30 - 21:00. 

The commission fees are taken on the day you buy and sell the shares. ( not the day the funds settle ) so the fees may be around 2 days before the funds are taken (when you buy) and credited (when you sell). Further to this we do have a much lower commission fee but not as low as £1.

As you can see, if you trade US shares three times in the previous month you will get to trade them commission free the next month. 

All the best

Thanks a lot. I see the after hours trading closes at midnight GMT but NASDAQ still continues trading after this time, is there a reason the IG after hours trading timings does not cover the full times of NASDAQ after hours?

About the fees it is odd as I converted funds > USD balance.

But your notes imply there are fees if you don't opt for auto-conversion so I am confused. Can you update info on your site to accurately match the actualities please!

Fees show as GBP 10 initiall then zero:

Does the above report accurately reflect commissions charged? I my case I have nothing after 31/3 which indicates there is no charge, but my balance is not in GBP it is held in USD so I am very confused!

Is there some later commission bill that will come delayed ???

    • Hey @pravid17¬†I hope you're well.¬† In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.¬† In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade,¬†worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.¬† We make our money primarily through our spreads and¬†overnight funding¬†¬†with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is¬†regulated¬†by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the¬†UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's¬†ASIC¬†- This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.¬† I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question¬†
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year. ¬† ¬†Jeremy Naylor¬†|¬†Writer,¬†London¬†| Publication date:¬†Friday 23 September 2022¬† There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV‚Äôs Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions)¬†could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by¬†Disney¬†Plus or¬†Amazon¬†Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.

Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†
