US share dealing charges?


Recommended Posts

I'm quite new to trading, but am already an active trader, making several trades per month. I trade almost exclusively in US shares and because of this I chose IG - because there are no charges for US share dealing.

I notice that the first trades I set up included a charge of almost $13. I did not complete the trades as I would like some clarification. Am I correct in assuming that these charges will be refunded to my account once I have made the minimum number of trades?

With the US shares your previous calendar months trades decide the amount you pay the next calendar month. 

If you had traded US shares 3 times last calendar month you should not have to be paying commission for US shares now.

If you believe you were incorrectly charges please reach out on helpdesk.uk@ig.com.

All the best

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
