Royal Dutch Shell Shares

Recommended Posts

I don't understand what has happened to my royal dutch shell shares, it shows that I have 255 shares at £0, my account and profit seem to have been rolled into one. Does this mean my shares have been sold without my knowledge. Do I have to buy back at the London price of £19, when my dutch price was only £9.

Don't understand 😏

Hi @iangoodwin2

Thanks for your query. 

Please note that Shell has had a mandatory corporate action which has resulted in the merger of their A and B lines listed on the LSE. Thus your shares were sold then rebooked to reflect the correct ISIN as per the terms of the event. Should you have further queries you can reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com

All the best,

Hi there - i have the same issue and i understand the explanation so thanks for that.  However my account is now showing an artificial profit - the cost of my new shell shares is shown as £0, and so the profit shown is equal to the market value of the shares which is not correct.  is it possible to manually show a cost basis in the shares so my account looks more realistic?

    • When I started car shopping, I realized I knew nothing about checking out a used car’s past. In the past, I just looked at condition and price. However, a salesman showed me a detailed vehicle history report made by DIMO, a blockchain system tracking full data pulled from the car’s computers. I was amazed anyone could get such complete background details. While too pricey for me, this showed blockchain’s power to securely gather key info over time - from service to repairs to crashes. It made me recognize the need to evaluate history before buying.  DIMO builds thorough records to help buyers avoid “lemons”, accurately assess shape, check claims, get fair pricing, and feel confident around big investments. These histories even get passed to future owners, raising resale value. Where I once ignored backgrounds, now I know checking histories is key for informed used car buying. While test drives don’t tell the whole story, blockchain systems like DIMO allow transparency through permanent records. Understanding vehicle histories is vital for smart purchases.
    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
