Earning borrow fee on fully paid up shares in share dealing


Recommended Posts

Would be nice, but I can't see it happening. To be honest, I would be happy to just have a say over whether a broker can pimp my shares around. Ultimately, I guess the argument is that the fee the broker gets from lending clients' shares out offsets the commission the clients' are charged, so they are indeed indirectly paid from the process. The whole thing stinks though.

I don't think IG has ever done this and is perhaps linked to the Custodian model they use where the actual shares are held by Citi bank.

Many years ago they did use to go to the market to find shares for clients to borrow to short (as opposed to using other IG client's shares) but seem to have stopped doing this 7 or 8 years ago for non-leveraged.

    • This is why I think using volatility as an important input is a much better way..... It's not about predicting the markets, it's about proactively preparing for what maybe around the corner. Follow me on twitter for more updates. Took me all night to model that price action and it paid off “ biggly”.    Take care out there  CA  
    • A higher than normal spread generally indicates one of two things, high volatility in the market or low liquidity due to out-of-hours trading. Before news events, or during big shock (Brexit, US Elections), spreads can widen greatly. A low spread means there is a small difference between the bid and the ask price. From google
    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
