Hi, 

I made 4 share purchases yesterday, each had a £10 commision.

I thought after 3 purchases the comission doesnt apply to future purchases?

Please could someone advise?

Kind Regards.

i have also traded 3 times and it is still asking for £10 a trade! !

Thanks for your post. 

The reduced commission fees work per calendar month not from the first time you traded:

So if you traded 3 times in February, in March you will have the reduced commissions. 

I hope this helps clarify why you were charged. 

All the best

I traded a single share of Apple on the demo account got out for 50c profit a few minutes later and the commissions recorded were $30 -  $15 to get in and $15 to get out. This seems extremely expensive?

When trading on a CFD account for shares you're charged commission. Make sure the amount you're trading and profit goal you desire takes into consideration the amount of commission you need to pay:

If you're a UK client you can use the spread betting account if that works for you because you don't pay commission on shares the charge is incorporated in the spread. 

All the best

    • The spike in volume you're noticing around 7 pm could be related to the closing of trading sessions or the release of important news. Regarding your experience with a sudden wick spike, this is a common challenge in trading. Setting appropriate stop-loss levels and being prepared for volatility can help manage such risks. As for news sources, financial news outlets like Bloomberg, Reuters, and CNBC can provide valuable insights into market trends. Also, I came across this interesting platform, smarterbusiness.co.uk, which helps businesses find optimal utility providers. While it may not be directly related to trading, having access to the right info and resources can be crucial in any business endeavor.
