Moving shares into an ISA account


Guest Damian SM

Question

Guest Damian SM

Hello.  I am trying to move shares between a share dealing account and a ISA account.  I have been told that I need to do this by phoning IG.  But they don't answer the phone.  Presumably I can do this myself by selling the shares and transferring the money into the ISA account and re-buying the shares.  There would in this be the charge of selling and buying - would there also be a cost for the transfer between accounts?  There is the obvious risk in this of movement in share value (in either direction) during the process of selling, transferring and buying, but I don't see an alternative if I cannot speak to anyone at IG.  Does anyone have experience of this sort of transaction?

It may be worth putting the subject of the email as 'Bed and ISA' urgent as it's close to the end of the tax year (5th April). 

You are correct though you can sell your shares wait for the funds to settle and buy them back in the ISA but note that you have to pay commission and the markets can move whilst you want for the funds to settle/ transfer. 

All the best

    • GBP/USD and EUR/USD come off their recent highs while EUR/GBP consolidates Outlook on EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD as they consolidate post European PMI data.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  EUR/USD consolidates below parity EUR/USD’s near 5% rally from its $0.9536 fresh 20-year September low faltered just below parity amid weaker than expected Eurozone purchasing managers index (PMI) data which continues to point towards a possible recession. The cross thus slid back to its two-week support line and may soon revisit the $0.9855 late September high. Further down minor support can be found around the $0.98 mark and also at the 3 October low at $0.9753. In case of the minor support line holding, parity may be revisited. Slightly above it the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) and the February-to-October downtrend line can be spotted at $1.0025 to $1.0038 and are likely to cap the upside this week. Source: IT-Finance.com EUR/GBP consolidates post weak Eurozone PMI data EUR/GBP has been trading in a less volatile fashion than last week when it shot up to its £0.9283 two-year high on the back of the UK’s mini budget which introduced the biggest tax cuts in 50 years. Following the government’s partial U-turn on Monday, EUR/GBP slid to this week’s low at £0.8649 before consolidating amid weak Eurozone PMI data and while awaiting UK construction PMI data. Further sideways trading seems to be at hand with minor resistance sitting at the £0.8787 mid-September high. If overcome, the 26 and 28 September lows at £0.8853 would be next in line. Below the recent low at £0.8649 lies the mid-September low at £0.8626 and the 55-day SMA and early September low at £0.8587 to £0.8567. Source: IT-Finance.com GBP/USD consolidates below this week’s high made close to $1.15 GBP/USD’s 11% rally from its all-time low at $1.035 following the UK governments largest, by some seen as unfunded, tax cuts in 50 years, seems to have stalled marginally below the $1.15 mark. Monday morning’s U-turn on the abolishment of the UK higher earners 45p tax rate cuts, only saving of around £2 billion out of a £45 billion fiscal loosening programme, and Wednesday’s decision by the Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng to freeze tax thresholds, which in three years’ time will deliver an extra £41 billion amid high inflation and rising wages, have not helped the pound which has so far slid back to $1.1228. GBP/USD now trades below minor technical resistance seen between the 7 and 16 September lows at $1.1351 to $1.1406 while immediate support below $1.1228 can be found along the two-week support line at $1.1178.

    • October trade was off to a roaring start until the speculative charge hit the skids this past session. We could try to connect the stumble to US data or Fed speculation, but the math doesn’t work out. More likely, seasonal positioning has worked through and now the markets are tuned back into tangible fundamentals. What does that mean?
