Hi, I've been Trading every day for a while now.  Several Buy and Sell activity within a day using my Share Dealing Account.  From what I understand there are No Charges if i traded 3 times the previous month.  I do this daily!

I notice a lot of issues and my account is failing fast.  I recently bought Pinterest at a certain price.  The price is clear on my statement. As time passed I decided to get out and my Sell price was exactly the asme as by Buy price, but money back to me was short £10.

Can anyone explain what is happening?  I'm down over £200 this week getting in and out of trades.  For all I know it's been happening since I started trading.

I recently received a Statement from IG suggesting they have acrued over £1200 from me last year.  I'd like to know how.

Thanks.

OH DEAR GOD.

Is it the exchange rate conversion and/or 0.5% spread?

I had NO IDEA........I've lost thousands Trading like a Maniac every day!

Still learning.

Can this be confirmed please?  Thanks.

Hi @nit2wynit,

There is effectively a 0.5% Foreign exchange fee :

The 3+ trades rebate is on commission, more details here.

You can change you Currency conversion settings in My IG > Live accounts > Currency conversion
If you change to manual conversion you will be able to hold foreign currencies to then buy other stock or convert when you want to withdraw funds. But the commission rebate won't apply as mentioned above.

I hope that it helps !

Thanks @ArvinIG

Looks like I figured it all out in the end.  Now I know why my account hasn't grown since I started Day Trading instead of Swing Trading.

Given all my profits from last week away.

They say it takes 3 years to learn to trade Effectively.  I should have it nailed by the end of 21 :D

is that mean no more exchange fee?

Hi @amilio,

As mentioned above, on a share dealing account if you switch to manual conversion your commission will change but you will be holding USD, therefore you won't have exchange fee until you decide to convert back to GBP to withdraw for example.

Please refer to the link on the post above.

All the best - Arvin

    • Gold makes fresh #Leg 1 to the downside while electing the MAJOR bearish reversal of 1836.10. The nearest bearish reversals starts at 1814.10 and presents the current trading range.
    • Following on from with the NETW chart above showing the Gartley: Its VITAL for you to take the geometry 1 step further - you can wing it without, but to really nail things down, it would be prudent to understand and KNOW geometrical relationships  I've worked out all the geometrical relationships for all the ratios So for example If a market retraces to a 61.8% level and a ABCD is working out, its highly probable that the CD leg will reach 161.8% of the AB leg from C - that's because 1.618 and 61.8% are linked intrinsically - 61.8% is the INVERSE of 161.8% Take the NETW chart: Price retraced to exactly 50% level - this is NOT a Fib number its ratio related to the SQUARE - from the chart below have a stab in the dark of the number % that 50% is the Inverse of.............................................. That's right 200% - Once you know these ratios, you no longer have to scratch your head wondering why a market does things at certain levels Look how the market reacted once it balanced the prior main retracement of 50% at the 200% level - obviously important! Thought these markets were meant to be random????????????????????????????????????? The expectation would be a rally upwards from that zone THT
    • Hi @Irsa Welcome to the community and thanks for reaching out.   Different types of leveraged products The majority of leveraged trading uses derivative products, meaning you trade an instrument that takes its value from the price of the underlying asset, rather than owning the asset itself. The main leveraged products are: 1. Spread betting (UK only) A bet on the direction in which a market will move, which will earn more profit the more the market moves in your chosen direction – but more loss if it goes the other way.   2. Contracts for difference (CFDs) An agreement with a provider to exchange the difference in price of a particular financial product between the time the position is opened and when it is closed. For more information on our leveraged products please kindly visit this link: What is leverage in trading and spread betting vs CFDs   All the best - MongiIG
