IG Manual vs Automatic currency conversion and $15 charge

Recommended Posts

Hi 

Could someone please clarify what exactly does the conversion fee found on https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/costs-fees mean

"Clients who choose to convert currencies manually will pay commission of 2 cents per share with a minimum charge of $15 on US stocks."

My account is in GBP but all my share trading is in US. So far I've had it set to both automatic and to manual while making deposits and selling and buying shares but as I qualify for zero commission trading, I haven't seen this charge anywhere.

But I 'm a bit apprehensive about this sneaking up on me later on. Have you been charged this $15 per share commission at some point?

Thanks

    • Are you seeing what I'm seeing, Jasmin? 🤯
    • Look, I will gladly get paid to do technical analysis and never put another trade on in my life 😘
    • Here's the value of the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF tracker at the start of February and most recent price:     Here's the SPDR  S&P U.S. Dividend Aristocrats by comparison       The SPDR index has an annual yield of 2.53% and a five-year annualized return of 12.19% The Vanguard index has an annual yield of 1.47% and a five-year annualized return of 16.39%   So my question is, why would anybody choose the Dividend Aristocrat index over the S&P 500 index?
