Hi, I bought a US share in my ISA sold at a small profit.  Once converted back to Stirling it was a loss. Is this just down to IG converting from £ to $ and back again?

Is there an account or another way around this?

Thanks

Hi @scc1963

Thanks for reaching out and yes, that is most likely the case. The charges would be commission and conversion charges. 

With the ISA account, a client would be unable to convert their account to a multi-currency account which enables you to keep different currencies without converting funds after every trade. 

The multi currency setting is only possible for share trading accounts. For multi-currency accounts, clients will pay commission of 2 cents per share with a minimum charge of $15 on US stocks. Changing your currency conversion settings influences the amount of commission you pay. Our team reviews these changes on a monthly basis, so it may take some time to update your account. Please be aware that changing from converting on 'instant' to 'manual' means that you'll no longer qualify for commission-free trading (As shown in the below table)  >>>

All the best,

    • Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis for Bitcoin, Bonds, Yields, USD/ DXY, Gold, Silver, Iron Ore, Copper, Uranium, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn, Wheat, Soybeans, Coffee, Cocoa. Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis Update: Identifying the crucial turn in the USD is paramount in our analysis. However, the challenge lies in interpreting the upward movement of the USD DXY, as it can be construed in multiple ways. To gain clarity on the DXY, I examine the 10-year Yields, which indicate further upside potential. Concurrently, TLT Bonds suggest continued downside momentum. Consequently, Gold, Silver, and base metals remain susceptible to selling pressure. Additionally, the Crude oil market exhibits an upward trajectory, aligning closely with the movement of the USD DXY. Notably, Forex pairs, particularly the AUDUSD, demonstrate a direct correlation due to the interconnectedness of commodity dollars. In summary, the market pivot necessary for trading has yet to materialize and may not occur until mid-March 24. Bitcoin: Wave iv) has concluded, and Wave v) appears poised towards 55k. Dollar: Expectations point to an increase in both the Dollar and Yields, with Bonds likely to decline. Gold and Silver: Currently experiencing a corrective rally. Crude oil: Favorable for long positions in crude, while shorting gas remains advisable. Video Chapters 00:00 Bitcoin (BTC) 03:28 US Dollar Index, DXY / TLT Bonds.

    • Yeah, I think it's the mechanism behind the BGB price trend. This could go farther than one would expect. So I'll be trying to add it to my pf to help boost its healthiness in the future.
    • I don't think we can still take part in the airdrop but buying it could be the best option particularly as the market seems to be helping to create a good entry price.
