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 #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
