Currency conversion - Auto v Manual

Guest Pconroy23


Guest Pconroy23



I'm new here and wonder if anyone can help me on working out which is best when it comes to currency conversion, either auto or manual. 

I plans to trade US ETFs mainly SPY MDY QQQ SVXY. I will average over the 3 plus trades a month to qualify for zero commission on US ETFs but if I’m in manual currency the zero commission doesn’t apply and a min charge of $15 USD or 2 cent per share. 

 Is manual currency conversion only cost effective on larger portfolio sizes?

Also with manual conversion, once converted  to usd and ETF bought, if I sell the ETF I will receive USD and can buy more US sticks without another conversion cost? Therefore only needing to convert back to £ when withdrawing? 

Any feedback and advice would be much appreciated as I don’t want to have to keep paying the 0.5% conversion charges as I feel these costs will add up to a lot overtime

    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
