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.

    • personally, I hardly ever go short. I invest for the long term and I spread my investment over time. So when it goes down, I keep buying.
    • I already answered on Reddit, but I am happy to share also the answer here 😉 As indicated on GraniteShares’ website, “Securityholders will own fewer ETP Securities than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, the value of a Securityholder’s investment will not change […]. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash […].” Note that each is supported by example on the website. The amount invested will not drop from $17,850 to $8,500 after of the reverse split. It will not change, saved for eventual fractional securities. The objective of the product remains the same as well and its performance will not be affected by the reverse split. As a reminder 3STS tracks, excluding fees and other adjustments, the performance of the Solactive Daily Leveraged 3x Short Tesla Inc Index that seeks to provide -3 times the daily performance of Tesla Inc shares.
