Share Certificates

Most brokers use a nominated account where shares are held, so no you don't get a share certificate. Some brokers will provide you with a certificate at a cost. With a nominated account your name does not appear on the share registrar so you cannot attend AGM's. Some brokers can supply you with a letter to enable you to attend AGM's, at a cost. So yes it's all done electronically.

Thanks so much for your reply. If we do not appear in the share register etc would it be fair to say we are not “proper” shareholders and would not receive any dividends ?

Thanks for your response but I am still a little confused !

 

When or how will I know if dividends are due / have been paid and how do they find their way into my account ?

 

As I said I am very new to this thanks for bearing with me.

Hi - if you want to know in advance which stocks in your portfolio are paying dividends, you'll need to research this yourself, however we do notify you for any open positions you may hold.

 

Every time a stock pays a dividend, and you have that stock in your name, then we'll automatically send you the funds to your IG account (a couple of days after the pay day for that stocks div). The system will automatically notify you of the dividend paid and the amount. 

 

I hope this clarifies things but please let me know if I can help further.

Hi James,

I've just bought my first shares today.  They appear in my IG Share dealing platform in "Open positions".  Am I right to assume that they will remain in that state indefinitely and would only "close" when I come to sell them?

Thanks,

Ash

Hi  - that's correct - your share positions will remain in the 'open positions' tab until you either close them, or an order you have specifically set to close the position gets hit. 

 

There are some other instances when they may go (for example if there is a corporate action, take over or merger, delisting etc), however these are on a case by case basis.

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
