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.

    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
