Trading fees


Ows

Question

Hi, sorry if these are silly question's but I'm new to IG and trading.

Can some one explain the trading fee discount after 3 trades? 

Does selling a share count as 1 trade or is it just buying a share? 

Does trading in a stocks and shares isa account count towards the 3 trades or do they have to be 3 trades in a share dealing account only? 

Assuming I've made 3 qualifying trades, I'll have to wait until 1st June to get the discount?

Thanks in advance

Generally, you are correct in that the dealing reduction is applied on a monthly basis. If you are not currently eligible for the reduction, then all dealing in the current month will be at the full commission, irrespective of how many trades you make. If you make three trades this month, then from the beginning of next month you will be eligible for the reduced rates. To maintain the reduction in fees you need to maintain the three trades a month. Selling a share counts as a trade in the same way as buying a share. Making three trades during a quarter will also mean that the quarterly charge is waived.

I don't think it matters whether you deal in the ISA account or the share account - they both count (as far as I am aware). I only deal in my ISA account at the moment, and can verify that it counts towards the discount

Am I right to understand the ISA fees,

I pay £30 dealing fee in the first month 3* US stock.

Every other month, if I trade 3+ US stocks then I won't be charged dealing fee nor £24 custody fee. (0% dealing fee as 3+dealing previous month and exempt from custody fee as 3+ trade in a quarter)

Thanks

Not every other month - if you don't maintain three deals a month you will lose the zero commission deal (and don't forgot the 0.5% FEX fee)

yes, i understand 0.5% fx fee. 

So just maintain 3+ US shares deal every month to get free commission and platform fee. It works out better than my current iWeb. Thanks

Both share dealing and ISA trades count towards deducting the fee. 

All the best 

Does Spread bet trades count towards deducting commission and custody fees?

ISA trades count towards share dealing since they are essentially the same thing. Whilst I don't deal in spreadbets, I would say it is unlikely that they would count towards commission/quarterly fee reduction in share trading as the instrument and charging structure is entirely different.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
