Assistance with my first trade

Question

Guest Solarflex

Hi,

 

Hoping someone can assist with my first trade.

 

I have 280 fully paid ordinary shares through an employee share scheme.

 

I am wanting to sell all 280, however want to ensure I am doing it right.

 

So, in the app, I locate the stock (in this case ORG - Origin Energy)

 

I select the stock, then select trade. I then choose my quantity.

 

I assume then that the 'order level' is what I what the shares to sell @?

 

Also, I assume that the 'order type' is just left as 'limit-day'?

 

Once the trade is done/the stock is sold, do I then need to transfer the funds from my trading account to my 'cash' account & then to my bank account?

 

Finally, can the IG fee ($8 for a single trade if I remember correctly) be taken from the trade?

 

Appreciate any assistance.

 

 

Regards.

Hi , thanks for the post and welcome!

 

To sell shares with us, you would first of all need to transfer them to us, either from an existing broker or in their paper certificate form.  You do this by completing the relevant stock transfer form (which you can find on our website here) and sending it back to us to initiate the transfer.

 

Once you have the shares in electronic format in your IG account, you can sell them.  The order level is the price at which you would like to sell.  You can choose from a number of different order types; for example, 'Limit - Day' means that the order works to sell all the shares at your specified level throughout the market day, and is deleted after this, even if only partially filled.  'Limit - GTC' means that the order carries over to the next trading day and the one after, until it is fully executed.  'Execute & Eliminate' means as much of the order is executed at your price as possible, and the remainder immediately deleted.  'Fill or Kill' means that the full order needs to be executed or the order is deleted.  You can also place a market order, which means the full quantity of shares is sold, but you have less control over the price.

 

UK stocks generally settle on a T+2 basis, and US stocks on a T+3 basis.  Once the funds have cleared, you can withdraw them from your IG account.

 

The commission is deducted from your ledger separately, so upon open and close of the trade.

 

I hope this answers your questions, but if you have any more just let the Community know!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi,

 

This is a question regarding shares dealing on international shares.

 

When placing an order with a day limit, with closed markets, if the order expires and doesn't hit the price I set, do you charge the order fee anyway?

Or does it close the postion with no order and no fee?

 

Thanks

Hi  - you will only be charged if your order level is hit and a deal is executed. There will be no charge if this order isn't reached.

Thanks. More on this, I don't understand why when buying a US stock the price is in US dollars, but when I buy a UK stock it appears in GBP pence. So I'm confused by looking at the price of a stock as it doesn't reflect the same decimal. Is this an error?

Hi  - in the UK stock is quote in pence, whilst in the US it is quoted in dollars and this is therefore a market convention. This will therefore be the way they are quoted on share dealing accounts and CFD accounts. On a Spread Bet account we will quote in the Pence or Cent version and one point will always be whatever is to the left of the decimal. I hope this clarifies things.

    • Imagine a world where tokens are not just static assets but dynamic entities with executable scripts, thanks to ERC-5169 and TokenScript brought to life by the ingenious minds at Smart Layer. These technologies empower tokens to carry out intricate logic and front-end interactions, opening doors to endless possibilities. Trusted by over 1200 developers and 30 major brands, Smart Layer isn't just a concept; it's a proven solution embraced by industry leaders for its ability to tackle integration, privacy, and trust head-on. It's more than just a suite of technologies; it's a catalyst for the tokenized web revolution. At its core, Smart Layer introduces a paradigm shift, ushering in a trustless environment where token logic reigns supreme. Smart Tokens, the building blocks of this new era, encapsulate business logic in a blockchain-based format, enabling seamless interactions across systems and tokens. Tokenization becomes the linchpin of this transformative journey, as goods, services, and digital rights morph into programmable tokens. This not only streamlines integration but also fosters frictionless markets and empowers users in the digital realm.  As we look ahead to the next generation of the web, Smart Layer stands tall as the integration bus, connecting disparate systems and enabling limitless possibilities. It's not just about decentralized execution; it's about scalability, security, and a decentralized future where interactions are complex yet seamless. In this narrative of innovation, the Smart Layer isn't just a piece of the puzzle; it's the cornerstone of the Internet's future, a programmable service network facilitating decentralized interactions and shaping the digital landscape for generations to come. Am completely immersed with the ideology that this amazing innovation will reign supreme in this evolving industry and the tokens holders will have every reason to celebrate in the nearest future. Do you guys share the same sentiment or you think it's another over hyped project.
    • Blockchain technology has proven effective in various sectors where its use has been employed, and now businesses want to utilize its intelligence to raise user experiences and productivity. Sadly though, two major hurdles stand in their way: complex integrations, and data sharing regulations. Where tokenization promises to proffer solutions, scale and functionality limitations have halted its breakthrough; enter Smart Layer. Smart Layer promises us a new way to deliver business services that will unlock the next era of digital experiences. While current token functionality is limited by smart contracts, Smart Layer new token standard (EIP-5169) enables tokens to become Smart, and go beyond assets to deliver composable business services, thereby resolving the issue of extending token functionality. Through Smart Layer model, Web2 businesses are bound to build seamless user experiences by delivering more portable and composable services through tokenization, evading the need to build complex integrations with multiple chains. Smart Layer simply captures value with every integration and issued token, as businesses easily tokenize their experiences and services, and paves the way for seamless transition of businesses from web2 to web3. Smart Layer runs as a token-incentivised network of service nodes powered by Smart Layer token ($SLN), a token that has gained global attention thanks to its vast utilities and huge airdrop. Leading exchanges such as Bitget has also indicated interest in listing $SLN when the liquidity threshold is met. Your thoughts on this exciting project?
    • As blockchain technology and cryptocurrency adoption continues to surge, a lot of newbies seems to get discouraged due to the complexities involved in navigating through this evolving industry hence the reason why devs are constantly looking for ways to bring innovation that could ease the understandings of people embracing this industry. Thankfully IQ came through with a brilliant innovation where blockchain and cryptocurrency knowledge thrive. There, you'll find a wealth of wikis covering everything you need to know about the crypto world. It's not just an encyclopedia; it's a tool to empower you and shape the future of blockchain. Interestingly they don't rely solely on human effort. Their partnership with artificial intelligence, including OpenAI's GPT-4, helps scale content and make it more accessible. They're all about sharing knowledge in an easy, intuitive way. At the heart of their ecosystem is IQ.wiki, a hub for the curious, the seekers, and the scholars of blockchain. It's not just a source of information; it's a community united in the quest for understanding and growth. And powering it all is the IQ token, a symbol of commitment to a smarter future. More than just a cryptocurrency, it bridges the gap between artificial intelligence and blockchain, driving towards decentralization and empowerment. With a staggering 1173% up from the previous ATL, the tokens continues to get attention of both traders and investors alike and with many more CEXs now listing it on their platform, I think this AI token could follow the pattern of other top AI projects like TAO and AGIX or even surpass them.
