Exchange rates

Question

Guest the president

I live in the UK and have just purchased some shares in AUD. Thus the value of my holding, relies on the GBP/AUD exchange rate as well as the performance of the share. What exchange rate is IG using to value my account? Where can I go on this site to see what rate they are using?

Guest the President,

Have you really purchased 'shares' in AUD?

I assume you have placed a 'long' trade on GBP/AUD FX pair?

Are you trading via 'CFD' or 'Spread Betting'?

@TrendFollower - i believe the purchase was on a share dealing account for AUD denominated stock. Each share is generally quoted in the respective base currency of that market (with a few exceptions).

    • Bitcoin at 1:30 pm UK time is still holding up above $9k level which is good so far. It may not last and by tomorrow morning could be back below $9k or shooting up to $10k such is the unpredictability and volatility in Bitcoin. 
    • I wanted to just share the 'Monthly' Silver chart. I shall let you all draw your own conclusions and make your own predictions / assumptions.  Now have a look at the 'Weekly' chart below: For me one could argue that all the downside is played into Silver and any sight of significant bad new could lead to immense upside. It would be a 'Contrarian' type investment / trade but it would also be a 'buy and hope' investment and style. There is nothing wrong with that as long as one accepts that is what it may be. Right now time for some serious 'Flooding'. Apologies if you do not get a chance to this this post or my previous post on this thread due to severe 'Flooding'. The weather is bad in the UK. 😂
