Extremely baffled on currency conversion fee


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

could anyone explain how, aking into account all the conversion fee, a gain of $210 becames a gain of  £47.95 on instant conversion setting (No trade fee) ????

 

Nothing is clear or transparance in here, it seems almost a scam and nobody answer the phone nor the e-mail !!

Hi, just a quick look but can't see what's wrong, just looking at the top conversion;

USD total is $5,112.00  

so the IG conversion fee 0.5% of the total = $25.56

$5,112.00 minus $25.56 = $5086.44.

$5086.44 at the current conversion rate (off google around 0.79) = £4034.72

0.5% of value at every exchange , sell side + buy side = 1% in the meantime , currency fluctuation risks , for example buy time - sell time = 4%  loss or gain , 1% for IG + 4% exchange loss = 5% of your trade value . If your profit is 6% in USD , your profit become 1% in GBP .

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
