IG has soooo many fees?


Recommended Posts

Ive just moved to IG, mostly from commission free brokers. I did look into the commission and fees before I signed up, however, I was not expecting the sheer number of fees that ive incurred so far on just 6-7 trades...Nearly £200 in fees since the 26th! WHAT?

 

I read in a forum post on here posted from an IG support team members (albeit from 2016) that there is no fee for amending open positions but it looks like that's what I've been charged for? Am I missing sometihng here? Can someone please shed some light on what im being charged for because the transaction history page is not helpful

 

I know the 'DEAL' are the closed trades, thats fine, what are the WITH's about?

Looking here https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/costs-fees it would make sense that a commission of £10 for a trade on US shares is taken, unless your previous month had at least 3 trades. If account is new, 'previous month' doesn't exist yet, so you would pay £10 for each trade.

What I don't understand is why you get x3 WITH for a single purchase of a share.
