HUGE commission for trading penny stock .

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Please let me know does anyone trade US penny stock. When I started trading US stock for all the transaction there use to be currency conversion charge and this was costing a lot.

Since my account base currency was GBP for every trade  in USD I use to pay currency conversion rate which was costing a lot for me . Then I decided to convert all my GBM capital into USD (Stopped instant conversion). However now I can see all my trade per share IG is charging 13 pence from my account . It's almost equal to looting my account 

 

Example

Share Bionano Genomics Inc   Number of share : 5000   share cost :0.48507   total amount : 2425.35 UDS       commission : 100 UDS 

 

FOR A 2425.35 USD  transactions BUY COMMISSION  100  usd  Sell   Commission  : 100 USD .   

Are all getting changed like this for your US transaction ???  

I don't think I can continue trading like this .. this charges are killing my capital .

    • this probably should have been ignored, but IMHO it was a new low.  obviously jlz tried to help someone here, and referred to others to add emphasis to a point.  I'm writing this because I actually asked for support in my earlier response, and I'm very pleased I'm not the only one who reacted to this post thoughtfully, so I think it would be pretty weak if I didn't speak up here. That may make me look ridiculous, and like my tongue is now travelling through a bunch of cracks, but I don't give a **** (like I think you would not either).    I'm actually surprised that you @dmedin  left it to this statement - usually you're significantly more effective in warning people of the hazards we face as retail punters IMHO - I think you definitely had stronger moments. you know what I would find useful:  having a separate, focused thread for insults  - I'm sure by now the respective targets wouldn't mind (to not again say not give a ****), and other discussions could become - let's say "leaner". I genuinely think I got a lot of valuable insights from many of your posts here, and I highly appreciate the honest feedback, and I also believe you have good intentions. I don't know about any history between you, jlz, THT, and Caseynotes.  I further think you play an important role here in this forum and I look forward to more productive discussions with you. But the post quoted above was a new low.
