ISA stocks and shares

Question

I’ve opened an ISA trading account and I have a few question before deposit funds.

 

1.Is there any margin call in this account or can a trade be closed or reduced if a trade declines? If not does the value just drop proportionality?  

 

2. Can profits be withdrawn on an open trade?

 

3. If the maximum of £20k is deposited and u make profit can more than £20k be traded on further trades and if so is the sum more than £20k taxable if profits are made?

 

4. When opening the ISA account I had to open a share dealing account, what was the reason for this and do I have to use it? 

Thanks in advance

Hey @bmont

1. With an ISA account there's not a margin call as you're buying the actual shares. What you should be aware of is any fees that may impact you balance. For example there can be a quarterly £24 fee. You must make sure there's enough funds on the account to pay this. So it doesn't effect your ISA allowance you can have the money on your share dealing account and we can take it from there. 

2. Profits cannot be withdrawn from an open trade. You have to sell you stock and wait for the funds to settle before you can withdraw them. 

3. If you make profit on stocks which means you exceed £20K this is not an issue. With regards to tax we're unable to comment you would have to reach out to an independent tax advisor.  

4. You do not have to use your share dealing account if you don't want to. The share dealing account is non-leveraged. Clients open with this account and if ISA eligible will be shown the option to add an ISA. 

All the best

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
