SmartPortfolio ISA - Wrapper Contains Cash - How to re-invest?


Question is pretty much title.

I have a SmartPortfolio ISA - I have withdrawn some of the money to the ISA wrapper after being told that it is possible to reinvest it at a later date but I cannot see this as an option anywhere in the UI.

In order to re-invest your cash as soon as possible, please email helpdesk.uk@ig.com and provide your account number. We’ll then be able to arrange for the Smart Portfolio team to remove the ring fence that is currently on your cash, since our system still believes you still would like to withdraw this money.

Alternatively, if you have a Share Dealing account there is another way you can re-invest the cash yourself. First, transfer the cash from your Smart Portfolio account to your Share Dealing account in MyIG, and then transfer it back again to your Smart Portfolio account. This automatically removes the ring fence on the cash and will invest the amount in your portfolio.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
