Hi there,

Sorry still a bit of a novice when it comes to stocks and shares trading,

So I opened up a trading 212 shares ISA account a few months back (less than a year ago)

now in the UK (not sure about USA) you can only open up one ISA Account a year,

I opened but never used a IG shares ISA  since then and have decided to start the process on doing a asset transfer from 212 to IG due to the vast amount of stocks IG hold to 212,

what I am asking is, is this something that would get me in trouble or would the '1 per year rule' only apply if I was to use my IG account and still use my 212 account,

but as I am doing a transfer I am ok and this doesn't apply in this case?

Any light shed on this matter would be most useful!!

Many Thanks

During the transfer process the tax year of when you deposited the money with Trading 212 will be taken into account.  If its in the last financial year then the deposited amount will not affect your allowance for this year. 

You can transfer between ISA providers at any time. You should be able to open another stocks and shares ISA in the same tax year and transfer out of the old one.  HMRC are concerned about you not going above the £20k allowance per year.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
