Bed and Isa in practice


Recommended Posts

I have a share on which I have a large mark to market loss but don't want to sell. If I do a Bed and Isa I understand that I crystalise the loss for CGT purposes and then buy back into my ISA to keep the potential upside. Q: I am confused by the £40 charge.  My share has a very wide bid/offer spread; do I get to deal on both sides somewhere within the bid/offer spread and pay a £40 facilitation fee, or do I sell at the Bid and buy at the Offer, being hit by the spread, and then pay £40 on top? Since I am providing the market maker with the stocks and removing his market risk by giving a simultaneous buy order I am hoping that it is an all in £40 charge.  Is this correct??

Hi @Bman,

Thank you for your post.

Please note that when doing a Bed & ISA, you are selling the shares on the share dealing and then buying back the shares on the market within the ISA, therefore, you sell at the current bid (whatever it is when doing it) and buying back within the spread. 

This means that you won’t keep the same average opening price, because you would have realised profit/loss on the share dealing account and then they buy at the current market price on the ISA account.

The £40 (dealing fee) is on the sale of shares per line of stock, but you won’t incur any cost from us on the repurchase.

Depending on the share and trade consideration, there may be PTM (Panel of Takeovers and Mergers) Levy of £1 to pay on both sides of the trade and stamp duty on the repurchase within your ISA.

The risk is capped at between either £30 or £50 spread per line of stock and is separate from the dealing fee.

All the best,

Many thanks for the reply!!. Still a bit confused tho. What is meant by buying back “within the spread”? Does this mean at a better price than the market offer? And what does the “risk is capped at £30 or £50” mean? Which risk are we referring to and when is it £30 and when £50?

Sorry if it’s being pedantic, it’s just that the terminology is not clear to me!!

Hi @Bman,

For buying within the spread: the market spread is capped £40, so if the difference between bid and ask times the number of shares is beyond £40, you will pay only £40 in spread because we do the process through a market maker.

You sell at the current bid and buy back within spread but not paying more that £40.

For Example: If the market was trading at 12/14 and you are selling 100 shares, you will sell at 12 and buy back at 14 paying £200 in spread

With a Bed & ISA, you sell at 12 and the market maker buys back 12.4 for example

That means 0.4 points spread x 100 shares = £40

The risk: When selling and rebuying shares there is a risk of price movement while you’re out of the market, and therefore a difference in sell and buy price between the open and close of the trade. This can result in buying back fewer shares than you originally held. By using the 'bed and ISA' process, this risk is capped at between either £30 or £50 spread per line of stock. 

I hope this helps.

    • Corn Elliott wave analysis Function - Trend  Mode - Counter-Trend Structure - Expecting Impulse Wave  Position - Wave 2 Direction - Wave 3 Details - Wave 2 may not drop inside the 419-413 support zone where we expected it to end. Perhaps it has been completed with the surge to 438’4 and the subsequent corrective response. Wave 3 is probably in play and will be confirmed by the breach above 438’4. However, a double three corrective pattern into the zone is still likely. So we need an important impulse break upwards to confirm wave 2 has ended. Between 26 February and 13 March 2024, Corn gained over 12%. However, that’s merely a 17% recovery of the April 2022-to-February 2024 sell-off. Thus, there is still some way upside to go. From the Elliott wave perspective, it seems the current recovery will extend higher into the 22-month sell-off. By projection, the price might correct up to 571-623 Fibonacci retracement area. Today’s commodity blog post intends to show traders how to gain from this bullish corrective cycle. On the daily chart, from 824, we identified a corrective decline from April 2022 down to 394 in February 2024. Ideally, an impulse wave should follow to break above 824 in the long term. However, in this case, we will consider a 3-wave corrective bounce at first, and if the price supports, an impulse later. Currently, the price is in blue wave ‘A’ of blue wave ’1’ (both circled). We expect either to start with an impulse wave. On the H4 time frame, we can see the sub-waves of the current bounce better. On the H4 chart, a rally from 394 has completed the first impulse - wave 1. This is an indication that we may be right with the expected strong corrective rally or a long-term bullish impulse. From the end of wave 1, wave 2 has emerged and is quite debatable in the way it’s being structured. We expected wave 2 to end in the 419-413 key support zone. However, it appears wave 2 has ended with an expanding flat pattern. Flats can be quite tricky and can quickly transform a different pattern. Two ways to confirm wave 3 has started: 1. price breaks above blue wave ‘b’ of 2 high and  2. an impulsive break above 438 If the price confirms the end of wave 2, we should see wave 3 between 492 and 515 or maybe even higher. Thus, there’s more room to the upside for buyers to explore. However, if wave 3 is not confirmed, a further dip into the 419-423 or even lower shouldn’t come as a surprise.

    • Fears of a wider regional conflict in the Middle East weighed on market sentiment overnight, though a higher open is expected for the Dax. This flight to safety was triggered by news of an Iranian strike on Israel with hundreds of drones and missiles, raising concerns over potential Israeli retaliation. Safe-haven assets like gold and the US dollar strengthened, though the Japanese yen weakened to a 30-year low against the dollar, highlighting that interest rates remain the primary market focus despite geopolitical risks. Oil prices dipped in Asian trading as the risk of Iranian retaliation was already priced in last week. While the US has stated it will not take part in a counter-offensive against Iran, the volatility index remains near five-month highs, reflecting heightened market nervousness. Any further oil price increases could add to inflationary pressures, complicating central banks' efforts to control rising consumer prices. This week, markets will closely watch US economic data releases, including retail sales and comments from Federal Reserve officials, for clues on the monetary policy outlook amid persistent inflation concerns. The US earnings season is also underway, with mixed results from major banks getting the season off to a lacklustre start.
