Commission on US Stocks

Hi, new to IG. The information on Commission for US stocks is somewhat misleading. 

I placed 3 trades for US stocks and was charged £10 a pop for each trade. I was hoping that this would be refunded somehow but I guess that money is gone. 

Can someone explain what "Trade US Shares for zero Commission" actually means please? 

Many thanks

Hey, 

Thanks for your post. 

We do offer free US share buying and selling on share dealing accounts if you place 3 or more trades in the previous calendar month: https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/costs-fees

    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.       
    • Hi, all brokers are market makers to some extent. If you are trading on the Direct Market Access (DMA) platform then you are dealing on the exchange through IG but if using any other platform then IG looks to match those trades inhouse matching shorts to longs. Any excess they hedge on the exchange themselves.  So IG aren't taking the other side of your trade, they are covered whether you win or lose and they make on the spread from both parties. If they need to hedge they still win because they get a better spread than what they pass on to you.  
    • Err, I've had all my real vaccines, the ones that completed safety trials, have also had special vaxxes when had to present proof when travelling to a country were there were dangerous diseases present, no problem. But experimental gene therapy that has no medium or long term risk data for a disease that, according to the FDA, has just a 1 in 250,000 risk, and needing to present proof to go to a restaurant or club in my home town - no, this is not about a virus.   Note that the FDA officials that the Biden admin pressured into giving early FDA approval for these vaxxes both resigned. FDA panel just voted 16-3 AGAINST approving the boosters This slide was shown at their meeting.
