Commission fees

Question

Hello,

I am wondering why I still get charged £10 on US shares even though I traded over 3 times the previous month.

This puts me off from opening new trades. Can anybody shed some lights?

How do we get the refund?

If you have traded 3 times (all have to be US shares) on your share dealing or ISA account in the previous calendar month this months US share commissions will be £0. 

I hope this helps, all the best

Thank you for replying @CharlotteIG

The support team got back to me this morning and said that I only traded 2 times in April. I replied with my statement attached which shows that I traded 6 times in April.

Could it be that ADR stocks are not considered US shares? If that's the case, is it written anywhere in the terms and conditions?

Thanks

@CharlotteIG this is my statement from last month. Yet, on the 1st of May I got charged £20 total on two trades I made (both US listed).

I would like to know if this is a technical issue or I am missing something.

A friend of mine, also IG user, made very similar trades both in quantity and type of shares, but he didn't get charge commissions the following month. He didn't get charge for both opening and closing a position.

It would be appreciated if IG support can clarify what is going on.

 

Thanks

Does that mean you have to buy and sell in order to not be charged? what if you are not ready to sell?

You don't have to buy and sell. It's just that if you buy that counts as one and if you sell shares that counts as a second trade. :)

    • Friday’s fiscal plan unveiled by the UK government has scared off investors and as a result the pound is down heavily across the board. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains that while sterling is off today’s lows, it has suffered breaks of support taking the pound down to levels not seen in decades against a basket of currencies.          
    • GBP/USD in 37-year lows, EUR/GBP 2-year highs and EUR/USD fresh 20-year lows GBP/USD slid to its 1985 low and EUR/GBP rallied to a 2-year high following the UK’s fiscal stimulus mini budget while EUR/USD slid to fresh 20-year lows amid Italian far right election outcome.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 26 September 2022  EUR/USD drops to new 20-year lows as US dollar scales fresh 2-decade high This year’s slide in EUR/USD has taken it to levels last seen in June 2002 amid the Federal Reserve's (Fed) aggressive monetary tightening policy with market participants expecting another 125-basis point (bp) rate hike over the next couple of meetings, following three consecutive monthly 75bp rate rises which drove the US dollar to two-decade highs. With Italy’s first far right party since Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party in the 1920’s on course to win Sunday’s election, the euro is further under pressure. EUR/USD slid by around 4% since last week to fresh 20-year lows, slightly below key support seen between the June 2000 and January 2001 highs and the September 2002 low at $0.9698 to $0.9593 by dropping close to the $0.955 mark. Below it beckons the September 2001 high at $0.9331. Minor resistance can be spotted at the June 2000 high at $0.9698 above which lurks more substantial resistance around the 6 September trough at $0.9865. See an FX opportunity?
    • Market data to trade on Tuesday: China output; US inflation With the dollar remaining so strong, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at two trend trades that seem to indicate that there is no let-up in direction. USD/CNH is looking likely to break the near-term resistance on expected soft industrial production data in China, then US durable goods is likely to underscore the downward direction of trade for EUR/USD.
