CFD SHARE trading commission when closing multiple positions


DoctorStrange

Question

Hi all, this is a quick one relating to share trading using CFDs

If I have 2 positions on the same stock (initiated at different entry points) and later close out the aggregate position using the "close all" button, how is commission charged? Is it charged once for the aggregate position, or twice (once for each position)?

For example if I have 2 positions on a US stock, commission is 2 cents a share or minimum $15, whichever is the greater. If the aggregate position is less than 75 shares, and I use the "close all" button to close it, will 1 x $15 commission be charged? Or will 2 x $15 be charged?

Thanks in advance for any info!

    • FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Nasdaq 100 stall ahead of US jobless data Outlook on FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Nasdaq 100 ahead of US Non-Farm Payroll data which may influence the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) monetary policy going forward. Source: Bloomberg   Indices Federal Reserve United States Monetary policy DAX FTSE 100  Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 07 October 2022  FTSE 100 rally taking a breather The FTSE 100 is retracing lower ahead of the widely anticipated US non-farm payroll (NFP) data which may influence the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) monetary policy going forward. The index has so far rallied by over 4% from its September low on the back of hopes of a slowing tightening path by the Fed after softer US economic data earlier in the week but ran out of steam slightly above the 7,100 mark. The June low at 6,966 may be revisited. Below it sits further minor support in the 6,945 to 6,934 region, made up of the 26,27 September lows and the 3 October high. A bullish reversal and rise above this week’s high at 7,104 would likely engage the early September low at 7,131 as well as the 8 September low at 7,174. Source: ProRealTime DAX 40 slips ahead of US unemployment data The DAX 40’s swift ascent on hopes of a slowdown in the speed and size of global rate hikes following the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) lower than expected 25 basis point rate rise on Tuesday is taking a breather ahead of Friday’s US unemployment data. Following the contract’s technical bear trap, in which it dipped below its key March to July support at 12,386 to 12,432, only to then rally by over 7% to 12,704 before slightly coming off again, led it to revisit the 12,386 July low. Between this level and the 3 October high at 12,275 the DAX 40 may find support, however. If not, a slide towards the 30 September high at 12,138 may be witnessed. Immediate resistance comes in at the 12,596 early September low above which lie the 23 June low at 12,839, followed by the mid-June low and 20 September high at 12,940 to 12,944. The next higher 26 July low, 2 September high and 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at 13,021 to 13,066 may still be reached in the days and weeks to come, provided that no drop below the September low at 11,810 ensues. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq 100 rally stalls ahead of US Non-Farm Payroll data The Nasdaq 100’s near 7% rally from its September low has given way to some profit taking ahead of Friday’s US jobless data which should give clues as to the direction the Fed will take with regards to its monetary policy. Throughout this week various Fed officials have continued to pour cold water on the idea of a pivot, suggesting that there is little likelihood of a change in policy due to the persistence of high inflation. This has led to the Nasdaq 100 giving back some of its recent strong gains and it slipping towards the 11,306 low seen on Wednesday. A rise above this week’s 11,668 high would put the early September low at 11,918 on the cards. Source: ProRealTime
    • Stocks in Asia headed lower overnight, taking their lead from a tough session in the US, where the bullish move of the early part of the week faded thanks to ongoing nervousness about the direction of Fed policy and the usual pre-non farm payroll nerves. Fed officials have continued to pour cold water on the idea of a pivot, suggesting that there is little likelihood of a change in policy due to the persistence of high inflation. While this week's job openings in the US showed surprising weakness, for the moment it is a one-off. Further weakness in today's figures might add to the view that the jobs market is slowing, and thus perhaps produce a fresh rally in stocks. Conversely, signs of further strength will reinforce expectations of more tightening, and a pushing further into 2023 of any initial rate cut.   
    • Early Morning Call: USD holding recent gains ahead of Non-Farm Payrolls USD holding recent gains ahead of Non-Farm Payrolls data at 1:30pm UK.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 07 October 2022  Market overview Thanks to a strong start to the week, equity markets are on track to post their first weekly gains in four weeks. Yet, APAC equity markets have been consolidating overnight, following a negative US session yesterday. In Europe, indices began today’s session lower. UK Halifax house price index fell by 0.1% in September, after a 0.4% rise in August. On a year-on-year (YoY) basis, the index increased by 9.9%, down from a rise of 11.4% the previous month. In Germany, industrial production and retail sales came short of economists’ expectations in August. Forex The currency market remains subdued as traders await latest US job data. Economists expect 250,000 job creations in September. The unemployment rate should remain at 3.7% and average hourly earnings are seen rising 0.3% month-on-month (MoM) and 5.1% YoY. Fed policy makers will be particularly attentive to the non-farm payrolls (NFP) release, but it is very unlikely it will shift their mind when it comes to the next Federal Reserve (Fed) decision on rates. The Fed is widely expected to hike by 75-basis points for a fourth time in a row at their next meeting. Newly appointed Fed board member, Lisa Cook is the latest to support the bank's broad consensus for continued interest rate hikes. In her first public comments on monetary policy, Cook said that US inflation "remains stubbornly and unacceptably high, and data over the past few months show that inflationary pressures remain broad-based.... [Inflation] must come down, and we will keep at it until the job is done." Cook is the latest to relay the Fed's willingness to raise its target policy rate to a restrictive level, even at the risk of less economic growth and more unemployment. To quote just a few, Fed Governor Christopher Waller said yesterday: "I anticipate additional rate hikes into early next year". For Chicago Fed President Charles Evans, "Inflation is high right now and we need a more restrictive setting of monetary policy. " Neel Kashkari sees at this point "almost no evidence" that inflation has even peaked. Fed governors John Williams, Loretta Mester and Mary Daly also expressed their willingness to get rates into restrictive territory. Earnings update Elsewhere on the equity market, JD WetherspoonJD Wetherspoon posted a pre-tax loss before exceptional items of £30.4 million for the full year, while Superdry returns to profit after recording at statutory pre-tax profit of £17.9m. Yesterday evening, Levi Strauss shares fell in extended trading after the group cut its full-year profit forecast. Levi Strauss posted earnings of 40 cents per share for the third quarter, three cents higher than consensus. Revenue missed expectations, as the denim maker had to deal with softening demand, a strengthening dollar, and persisting supply chain issues. With inflation at decades high levels across the globe and a looming recession, consumers are moving away from higher-priced products and clothes to essentials such as food and energy. The strengthening also affected Levi Strauss margins, down 60 basis points compared to a year earlier at 56.9%. The company now expects full-year 2022 adjusted profit between $1.44 and $1.49 per share, compared to prior forecast of $1.50 to $1.56. Commodities Oil prices are showing small losses this morning. Yet, after this week's OPEC+ decision to cut output by two million barrels per day, WTI and Brent are set to clinch their first weekly gains in six weeks. Oil traders await the Baker Hughes weekly data. Last Friday, total rig count rose by one to 765. The number of oil rigs in operation increased by two to 604, while the operational gas rig fell by one to 161.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
