IAG went XR yesterday and I was holding stock. I now have a separate entry in my positions with call to close against it. I have 2 different entries with two different prices in different accounts. Please could someone offer explanations?

What is 'call to close"

Why are there 2 different prices?

Thankyou

Hi, call to close means you need to telephone to close.

Thanks Casey. That's useful info.

But I still have further questions.

The IAG rights issue offers holders the right to buy 3 shares for every 2 they currently have, at .92 euros.

Can I take up this offer or not?

Is IG offering to buy my rights?

30m
 

!!  IAG Rights ex-date was 14th September, please only call regarding this if you wish to trade the rights

Ah - so I can trade my rights or I can exercise my rights. If so I need to decide what is the best course of action for me.

I wonder why the price IG offers varies on different accounts? 

How do you get the best  / better price?

 

by different accounts do you mean share dealing and spread betting (CDF) accounts. sorry can't give answers, not my field, just relaying anything I see.

Did anyone actually receive an e-mail about the rights issue?

Like they usually email you asking if you want to take up the rights or do nothing or trade them?

I haven't seen any email coming in and now have the rights in my account. Weird one.

Certainly would like to take up the rights. What to do?

hey all, 

sharing the e-mail from IG below, so we're all on the same page. Trust you heard the share was diluted by the main share holders (meaning they issues new shares)  to make the price more attractive to the constitutional buyers. in this way they raised a few billions to support the groups liquidity throughout the pandemic.

We’re writing to let you know that International Consolidated Airlines Group SA (LSE) has announced a Rights Issue, entitling shareholders to subscribe for new shares in the company.

The terms of this Rights Issue are:

- Ex-date: 14/09/2020
- Issue: Rights Issue
- Ratio: 3 new shares for 2 shares held
- Subscription price: EUR 0.92 (GBp rate will be emailed to you when we are notified by our broker)
- Trading period: 14/09/2020 to Till IG deadline
- IG deadline: To be confirmed in due course via another email

What this means for the shares you hold

You have the following options for the shares held in your account:

-Take up the rights. Please reply to this email or call our trading services team on the number below to let us know you’d like to take up the rights
-Do nothing. The rights will then lapse (this is the default)
-Trade out of the rights by calling our trading services team. You must do this during regular trading hours
 

You’ll need to make your decision by the IG deadline. If we don’t hear from you before the deadline, we will lapse your entitlement as the default course of action.

Please make sure you have the relevant available funds to take up the offer for your full allocation of shares by the IG Deadline. The Deadline will be announced in due course and to work out how much you will need on your account the equation is below

The amount of shares you are due multiply by the Subscription price.

The information in this email is preliminary and could change. If you need help or have any questions, please contact us using the details below.
 

Kind regards

Hello, can somebody help and explain this rights issue? Is my understanding correct that if I hold 100 shares, I would be able to buy 50 shares at a pre-specified price that will be provided by IG over an email? If I accept this, I will get my average price down but ultimately I would still be worse off than where I was on Friday. 

Also, I see we can do it over the phone or reply to the email they sent me so I guess they'll execute the shares purchase etc and won't need to do anything or is that incorrect?

I got two emails for two accounts

The email doesn't really have much in the way of info. No deadlines dates (just says TBA, which isn't super helpful if it's soon...), doesn't have the cost per share (again, TBA). So, hard to base a decision on this (which is what the email asks you to do).

To the contributor asking about calling to close the trade and sell your rights - be aware that this will likely incur a higher broker fee. In Australia it's $50 or 0.1%, whichever is greater.

    • The ECB is expected to raise rates again at its meeting this week, but will it be enough to bolster the euro? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices European Central Bank Euro EUR/USD United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What will the ECB do? The European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to raise rates by 50bps at its meeting. What is the background? Like most major central banks, the ECB has been pushed into raising rates in order to combat high levels of inflation. While energy prices have come down, price increases remain above the ECB’s 2% target, and as a result, the bank still views it as necessary to push ahead. No ECB member has dissented from this view of late, leaving markets with little indication that a dovish caucus is forming. Indeed, inflation remains high, but economic data remains resilient. Expectations for a recession, which were widespread as 2022 ended and 2023 began, have been pushed further out, towards the second half of this year and even into 2024, helped by a slump in energy costs that has allayed the worst fears of economists and investors. What is the market impact? If the ECB can send a suitably hawkish message along with the expected 50bps rate hike, then the euro may receive some support against the US dollar. However, euro bulls must be aware that the pair has come a long way since the October lows, and while it only puts a modest dent in the 2022 downtrend, it does mean that the bar for further EUR/USD gains is rather high. This is coupled with negative divergence on the daily MACD indicator, which suggests weakening bullish momentum in the short-term and a general unwillingness to push the rally much further in the near-term. If the ECB is not viewed as being sufficiently hawkish, then EUR/USD may continue to weaken from its eight-month highs, but a move below $1.05 would be the minimum needed to indicate that the sellers have reasserted control. Source: ProRealTime Meanwhile in indices, a weaker euro could give the Dax some fresh impetus, but this would need to be fairly strong to counter worries about a weakening eurozone economy that might ensue. And if the ECB is much more hawkish and provides EUR/USD with a reason to recover then the risk to eurozone stocks is skewed to the downside. Some might argue that, given the huge rally in the Dax this month, some weakness is needed to take the froth out of the index, which may well be pricing in too optimistic a scenario. A drop back towards the 50-day SMA might bring the June and November 2022 highs into view as potential support. This would still leave the uptrend intact. Bulls would welcome further gains in order to cancel out the MACD’s negative divergence that looms large at present. Further upside targets 15,605 and then 15,725. Source: ProRealTime
    • Charting the Markets: 31 January FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq consolidate after latest leg higher. EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall back while USD/JPY rallies, ahead of central bank decisions. And Brent, gold and aluminium prices drop ahead of central bank meetings. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023           This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall back while USD/JPY rallies, as investors await central bank decisions The dollar has recovered to an extent this week, but the uptrends in EUR/USD and GBP/USD, along with the downtrend in USD/JPY, remain intact for now.  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  EUR/USD continues to drop back from recent high A modest pullback continues here with EUR/USD, eating into gains made since the beginning of the year. As markets brace themselves for a double hit of a Federal Reserve (Fed) and European Central Bank (ECB) meeting within a 24-hour period, EUR/USD has fallen back somewhat from the eight-month highs it reached last week. This is the first real weakness since the first week of January, and would leave the uptrend intact unless we see a move back below $1.04. If the price recovers above $1.05 then the bullish view is arguably intact and a bounce back towards $1.09 and higher may well develop. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD stalls at December high Weakness here with GBP/USD has seen the price falter at a similar level to early December, with a possible negative divergence in the daily moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) sending a cautionary signal for bulls. Just as EUR/USD traders have to deal with the Fed and ECB decisions within the same 24-hour period, cable traders must cope with the Bank of England (BoE) decision following hard on the heels of the Fed’s. Much thus depends on that period for the next move in GBP/USD, though it will still arguably take much steeper losses to reverse the broadly bullish outlook. For that to happen we would need to see a drop below the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), followed up by a fall below the 200-day SMA. Having failed to establish a higher high, and with the MACD negative divergence a risk, the uptrend could come under pressure. A reversal above $1.24 would put the buyers back in charge. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY edges up The greenback in USD/JPY has seen a modest recovery off its January lows, as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) dials down any hint of hawkish rhetoric. Nonetheless, the downtrend is still firmly placed. A move back above the 50-day SMA to suggest perhaps some further short-term strength, but the mid-December high around ¥134.00 would act as a barrier. Sellers will be looking for a fresh reversal that puts a move back to the January lows in play, and then sees a move below the May 2022 low around ¥126.50. Source: ProRealTime
