Dividend Reinvestment Plan


Recommended Posts

I agree, there has to be some movement on this feature, a ETA at least.

 

 what's that status with DRP facilities? There is quiet the following on this thread now, interest is considerable... not a week passes when I don't get a private message asking for news.

 

Also, can you tell us when we can expect access to corporate bonds via IG's platform, corporate bonds markets were mentioned some time back on the website, and yet when I recently asked I was told they were not offered.

Tbf as much as div reinvestment is important, the fact it’s the only blocker to people opening/moving must mean that other brokers are aweful in a significant number of other ways? IG are pretty cost effective.

 

But what other brokers are people looking at? And what are the negatives that have stopped you moving already?

 

Not being rude just curious of the community opinion

Hi all. So the dividend reinvestment work is an approved project in what we call our 'global top 50' (50 most important projects) but there is no development team who has capacity to do the work right now. The new ESMA regulations, Mifid II, GDPR and other essential regulatory and legal requirements are currently top priority as I'm sure you can appreciate, as well as the opening of an office in America. I appreciate that this isn't what you were looking for, but as soon as I have more information I'll keep you updated.

Unfortunately whilst you'll keep my CFD and spreadbet business I don't think I can treat here as my principal ISA account without DRIPS so reluctantly (as I think your platform is excellent) I will have to transfer out until such time as you introduce them, in that case.

Hi yes its a curios question and worth asking. I can only answer for my own situation. As regards stock i own quite a few and regularly buying more. Once you realise your borker is not supplying a service not as high as others brokers then it does make you consider looking around at other brokers. I do (well now its a case of i did)  also have spread bet account, but with the threat of increased margin costs coming in July; has made me close my account and reopen outside of Europe. In doing so i have found another broker offering better spreads and lower costs (ENC account). So coming back to my dividend stock account. While im sticking with IG i'm not adverse to keeping my eyes open  if another broker comes along, offering a better platform with DRIP facility. IG should not take its customers for granted, as they will walk if they don't keep up with their competitors.

Being a young investor looking to grow a portfolio of dividend stocks, this feature will be vital over the next 5, 10, 20+ years. If this feature is not implemented I will have no choice but to move to another broker, as would many others judging by this thread.

 

Any update on when a DRIP feature will be coming?

Hey - unfortunately there haven't been any advances on this since the last update.

 

The dividend reinvestment work is an approved project in what we call our 'global top 50' (50 most important projects) but there is no development team who has capacity to do the work right now. The new ESMA regulations, Mifid II, GDPR and other essential regulatory and legal requirements are currently top priority as I'm sure you can appreciate, as well as the opening of an office in America. I appreciate that this isn't what you were looking for, but as soon as I have more information I'll keep you updated.

 

I believe it should be done sometime this year but likely to be at the later part of the year. This is of course subject to change.

This continued lack of investment into a system function that is a pre-requisite for long term investment vehicles such as ISAs is a worrying signal from IG. If the company is more concerned about expansion than providing the necessary functions for retention of investors, there's some very troubling myopic decisions being made.

I've just read this whole feed after searching for the drip functionality. Extremely disappointed, I'll be immediately transferring my investments and will not return until this has been implemented. After 13 months it doesn't look good for value/growth investors. It screams to me that this is no where near the top 50 priorities and IG has other things on their mind.

such as the ESMA regulation which threatens to take out their entire business, Apple and Android stores looking to ban their apps, and I imagine GDPR ... yeh probably have a few other things on their mind

New customer here representing 6 entities - just discovered that IG doesn't have DRIP.  I can't tell you how disappointing that is to find out.  I feel very embarrassed as I have spruiked your product to friends.  I won't be doing that any more.

Is there any news about the DRIP project? I want to move from Barclay's new Smart Investor (as it is not smart) and like the IG platform a lot. But this feature is really critical.

Is their any update on this functionality? From the interest in this thread it would seem that IG stands to lose a good number of customers.

Can IG reimburse the cost of clients manually buying the stock with the dividend proceeds (commission, spread etc) until the automated option is implemented? It's a bit of a manual process but has to be a simpler solution than clients making transfers out and helps IG retain business that cold be lost.

Hi, Just wondering if DRIP is in place yet.

Hi - there are no DRIP functionalities in place at the moment. Unfortunately there have been significant regulatory changes to the industry which have resulted in a significant amount of dev hours focusing on required changes and new products. Once we have a clear confirmation of DRIP functionality being added I'll let you know.

    • From my experience, the profitability of a crypto business can vary widely depending on several factors. First, the type of crypto business you are considering is important.
    • Soybeans Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend  Mode - Impulse  Structure - Double Zigzag for (2) Position - Wave 1 of (3) Direction - Wave 1 of (3)  Details - Wave 1 of (3) broke to the downside and is now leaving the congestion area. More downside is expected especially if blue wave ‘iv’ of C of (2) is breached. Same as the previous update. Soybean prices appear to have completed a corrective structure that began in late February and could now be resuming the long-term bearish trend. In this analysis, we will also consider an alternative scenario in case the corrective bounce from late February has not yet concluded.   On the daily chart, a bearish cycle began in June 2022 at 1785. Following nearly two years of sell-off, we can identify the emerging bearish structure as a zigzag subdivided into the primary degree waves A-B-C (circled in blue). In October 2023, blue wave A ended with a diagonal at 1249’6, followed by a shallow corrective bounce for blue wave B up to 1398. Since reaching 1398 in November 2023, a bearish impulse wave (1) of blue wave C concluded at 1129 in late February 2024, where the current corrective bounce initiated. Currently, prices are in wave (2). Wave (2) completed a zigzag structure and might now be heading below 1129 for wave (3). Alternatively, there could be a corrective pullback above 1129, leading to a double zigzag rally for wave (2). Regardless of the scenario, a sell-off in the coming days seems likely. The H4 chart indicates that wave (2) completed at 1258, and prices are moving downwards in wave 1 of (3) or blue wave 'a' of X in the case of a W-X-Y higher rally for wave (2). We should see the current decline complete at least a zigzag structure towards the 1190-1170 range in the coming days. Preferably, our primary count anticipates an impulse wave decline below 1129 for wave (3).   In summary, soybean prices are poised to continue their long-term bearish trend following the completion of a corrective structure that started in late February. The daily chart shows a well-defined bearish cycle from June 2022, with the recent corrective bounce forming wave (2). The H4 chart suggests that wave (2) ended at 1258, and we are now in wave 1 of (3) or in the early stages of blue wave 'a' of X, depending on the alternative scenario. Key levels to watch are 1190-1170 for a zigzag completion and 1129 for a potential impulse wave decline. Traders should prepare for a sell-off while remaining open to the possibility of a higher corrective rally if the double zigzag scenario plays out.

    • Gold has rallied spectacularly this year, hitting an all-time high near $2,450 in early May. The upward momentum, however, has begun to fade, with prices down more than 4% from their recent peak over the past few trading sessions. Source: Getty Images   Forex Commodities Gold Market trend Gold as an investment XAU/USD   Written by: Diego Colman | Market Analyst, New York IG Publication date: Thursday 30 May 2024 05:28 Bulls are starting to head for the exits, in search of more attractive opportunities With market dynamics realigning with fundamentals following the speculative frenzy seen during the first few months of the year, the downward correction in the precious metals space of late could continue in the near term. This scenario becomes more probable if sticky US inflation compels the Fed to maintain higher interest rates for longer – an outcome poised to benefit the US dollar. For greater confidence in the bearish outlook, traders may opt to wait for more definitive cues. One such indication could be a breach of the support threshold around $2,335, where a key trendline intersects with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the March-May rise. A higher-than-average trading volume accompanying such a technical breakdown would further validate the signal. In the event of XAU/USD decisively dipping beneath $2,335, the 50-day simple moving average at $2,325 will be an important line of defense against the sellers’ next offensive. While taking out this floor might be difficult, a successful breach could pave the way for a deeper pullback, drawing focus to a crucial Fibonacci level at $2,265, a tad below this month’s swing low. Conversely, if prices pivot to the upside and resume their upward journey, initial resistance can be identified at $2,365, followed by $2,377. Traders should keep a close eye on this latter ceiling, as a breakout could reduce the odds of additional weakness and facilitate a move towards $2,420. Continued gains could then bring the all-time high within reach. Gold price technical chart Source: TradingView This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Australia Pty Ltd.
