I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way.

I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month.

Is this correct?

The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case.

In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter?

Thanks

Three trades a month will maintain the preferred trading rate (£3 for UK shares, or commission free for US shares). Three trades a month will also cause the quarterly charge to be waived. That said, bear in mind that there is a 0.5% FEX fee involved in dealing US shares. Trying to avoid the FEX fee by changing the base currency of your account will instead incur a dealing charge of 2 cents per share with a minimum charge of $15. So arguably not truly commission free, but then very little ever is in the land of brokers.

It's not clear for me either.

"Place 3+ trades on your share dealing account in the previous month to qualify for our best commission rates."

So in the first month I pay £10 after EVERY trade but in the next month I pay nothing if I made at least 3 trades in the previous month?

Which means if I make 100 trades in the first month I pay £1000 comission?

Thanks for clarifying. The support person clearly did not understand this at all, and the website is very vague!

The 0.5% is something I'm used to from other platforms, and much easier to absorb as a cost on small positions when making a good entry :)

    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward  
    • Ultimately what ever happens regarding " cycles" will be of no help to me . I am my own trader    Re volatility , its my niche , My models pick up most swings high and low .  My methods are recactive not so much predictive .   Its doesnt matter where it goes as long as it goes  .  1 year predictions are just a little fun with no weight in my profitability . Most years are up so just on that you should be bullish year on year and you will be right more times than not  .  I dont care if i am right or wrong . I left my ego behind a while back  .  Vix hasnt been around long enough to have a handle on its efficacy but i have done studies on realised volatility back multi decades and i put some credence in my conclusion  , but once again it will have zero influence on my returns unlike most  . We know there are no absolutes in this game , just probabilities and possibilities , define the former and manage the latter and it takes care of itself   ..  rock on   Wise words 
    • Can anyone help me understand why i am not seeing any market depth data for some shares? For example, the pic below is what i see for SThree plc (STEM) in my share dealing / isa account. I am seeing market depth for other shares, so it is just a case that there is no market in this share? I find this a bit strange given that it is listed on the main market. Is it some sort of bug in the trading platform?
