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).
