Custody fee query on share dealing account



Hi, I recently joined IG and opened a share dealing account. I have a question about custody fees. Do I need to do 3 or more trades for each of UK and US markets in order to avoid the custody fee on that account?

I don't think of myself as an active investor so does that mean I would probably be paying 96 pounds per year (24 per quarter) just to hold the current shares?

I too am confused about this.

From the annual costs and charges Statement I copied the following:

"A fee charged if you hold investments on a share dealing
account or ISA at the end of a quarter, and have traded
fewer than three times in that quarter. The fee does not
apply if you only hold cash on your account, and any
commission you pay reduces the fee by the relevant

From this it seems that if you have traded three times irrespective of whether it is in US or UK markets you should not be charged but I'd call IG just to be sure.

From where did you find the £96 fee charge?

    • SP500, NASDAQ, DAX 40, FTSE 100, ASX200. Elliott Wave Insights & Strategies  Summary:  US Indices Wave 2 retracement in progress and we will look to buy the low of wave 2 in due course. The SP500, Nasdaq 100, Russell 200 and the DAX 40 have this pattern. The FTSE 100 and the ASX 200 have different patterns, however these markets will follow the same intraday moments as the US Indices within reason and will also look to build long positions in the same timing of the US Indices and ETFs. Stocks: Two types of patterns occurring in these stocks. The stocks that have dropped a lot are still in their b) wave rally and will continue into the next session. Then there are the AAPL's that have made a new high. The main point is there are no decent trends occurring in the next session.
