Minimum consideration


Guest Vxross

Question

Hi all,

 

Sorry for the newbie question - i’ve tried buying £50 shares in a particular company, only to get a message saying it’s below the minimum consideration of £90 or something?

 

What does this mean please?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi - so there are minimum levels which you can invest. What specifically are you looking at trading on and via which account type?

 

For example if this is a stockbroking deal then you'd be looking at a minimum of £8 to buy (and then £8 to sell) so therefore at a total cost of £16, you'd need a £50 investment to increase by at least 32% to even break even. The restrictions are there to stop this happening.

^ this. For £50 I'd struggle to make the case. I don't see that as economical, unless it is some kind of monthly regular order. Its probably worth you sharing the stock you are interested in. £50 stake will have you struggling to sell with any viable or meaningful gain.

This makes sense but for myself, a regular trader, looking to learn and build up my overall portfolio, I’ve qualified for zero commission on US stocks due to my trading frequency and still have a £90 minimum consideration.

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
