question re. low commission rates



hi, I have been trading both UK & US stocks in excess of 3 trades per month for both types of trade.  When I just traded UK trades 3 or more times a month I benefitted from the reduced commission per trade of £3 but I noticed not the 0% commission for US trades. My question is whether I must definitely make 3 or more trades of both US & UK stocks in order to benefit from reduced £3 commission UK stocks.  I saw some guidance indicating the need to make 10 or more trades per month for the lowest commissions but there was no indication of how that would work. As I'm aware IG makes money off the currency exchanges involved in buying US stocks in Sterling it makes sense that one would have to trade US stocks to benefit from the 0 rate commissions. So, does anyone know if it's necessary to make 3 UK sterling trades per month in addition to the US commission to avoid reverting to £15 per trade commission in the following month?

I'd be grateful if someone could clarify.

    • Dow Jones Index (#US30): Key Levels to Watch This Week   Here is my latest structure analysis and key levels to watch this week on ⚠️Dow Jones.   Support 1: 31420 - 31830 area Support 2: 30690 - 30900 area Support 3: 30070 - 30360 area   Resistance 1: 32250 - 32610 area Resistance 2: 33430 - 33660 area   The market is currently stuck between Support 1 & Support 2. The market participants are awaiting the interest rate decision on Wednesday. It will most likely clarify the future direction of the market with a breakout.   Consider the underlined structures for pullback/breakout trading.
    • I used to enjoy playing poker and blackjack at casinos, but my love for gambling turned into an addiction when I started losing more often than winning. It took hitting rock bottom for me to seek help and change my habits. I joined a support group and worked with a therapist to develop healthier habits. Now, I still go to casinos, but I do so with caution and moderation, setting strict limits and avoiding addictive games. I've learned to control my impulses and make smarter decisions when it comes to my finances.
    • Hi @MayorofBelsize and All,  After checking with the relevant team, the integration will be finalized to mid year. It will be a staggered launch so not all countries will get access at the same time. We will confirm the details of the integration and the date by email to all our clients. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience.  All the best, OfentseIG
