Hi  , thanks for your question. 

 

Trading Hong Kong shares is currently only available on the leveraged CFD and Spread Betting platforms. You can review the commission for CFD and spread betting spreads at those respective links. As  noted you can either use the company name or ticker code to bring up the stock in the platform, however if you can't find it please let us know and we can see if it's possible to add. We require all new stock requests on a case by case basis depending on liquidity, market cap and free float levels, as well as other factors such as price action and historical market movement. 

 

Trading physical Hong Kong stock on our Stockbroking or ISA accounts isn't currently possible, however I will note this as feedback. Currently we have the following markets on the non-leveraged side of things:

 

  • UK: FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and many other small cap UK stocks
  • US: S&P 500, NASDAQ 100 and many other small cap US stocks
  • Germany: DAX, HDAX, MDAX
  • Ireland: ISEQ
  • Netherlands: AEX
  • Belgium: BEL 20
  • Austria: ATX, WBI
  • Australia: ASX/S&P 300

Hi James

 

I have the same newbie question but it is 6 months down the line. Wondering if things have changed?

 

I want to buy one particular share (Tencent Holdings) on HKSE. I can see it on the platform, there are messages relating to status eg market open, call to deal but the stock label is in red and the options to buy don't seem to be opening up so far even when the market is open.,

 

Many thanks.

Hi  - Tencent trades in Honk Kong and therefore won't be open at the moment. You should be able to trade this over the split session, from 1.30 am - 4 am, and then from 5 am until 8 am. (All times in GMT)

 

I hope this clarifies things.

Hi James/ All,

 

On the IG Share Dealing and ISA platforms at 0710 to 0725 when Hong Kong Stock Exchange seems to be open 

https://www.worldtimezone.com/markets24.php Tencent Holdings is still displayed in red with the info Status: Market Closed / Action: no action available. Can anyone help? Have I just missed the opening times and it is closed again or is there some other factor?

 

Many thanks.

Hi  - apologies that I didn't confirm in the original reply to yourself, however I was following on from the thread above (specifically the post by myself with a green tick next to it which can be seen here). Unfortunately you can only trade HK stock via a CFD or spread betting account, and it won't be available on a share dealing account. Sorry about any confusion I may have caused, but to clarify currently we have the following markets on the non-leveraged side of things:

 

  • UK: FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and many other small cap UK stocks
  • US: S&P 500, NASDAQ 100 and many other small cap US stocks
  • Germany: DAX, HDAX, MDAX
  • Ireland: ISEQ
  • Netherlands: AEX
  • Belgium: BEL 20
  • Austria: ATX, WBI
  • Australia: ASX/S&P 300

Hi Jerry - so the German listing unfortunately can't be traded. This is quoted in Frankfurt, but it's different from the electronically matched Xetra listing and would instead require a very manual process (call Citi via EMSX, who then call the pitt to trade). Unfortunately this just isn't feasible via the offering which we have so we wouldn't be able to offer this.

Thanks for your help James. It is a steep learning curve for novices ! And  I seem to have picked a share / firm that suits a more advanced investor! I will persevere! I did find a broker who can buy Tencent via HKSE ... minimum £10.5k trade which is well out of my league for the timebeing

 

Kind regards

Hello,

We are 2 years from the statement. Have things changed and HK would be available for normal (Dealing/ ISA) accounts? Would be nice to have a chance to buy there as buying it in USA is too much risk for me now. Therefore would love to know are you going to expand your range?

Regards,

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
