Smart Portfolios - 2 years of performance history

Recommended Posts

We launched IG Smart Portfolios two years ago. It's not been an easy time to invest, but performance is pleasing nonetheless. 

As an added benefit, for any clients that are infrequent share dealers (or indeed are seeking a diversified portfolio) we don't charge any quarterly custody fees for those who invest £15,000 or more.

I'm hoping you can help, I opened an ISA account to buy shares, but have just discovered IG's minimum consideration fee is 90 pounds when I place an order On Exchange rather than On Quote.

I have 4000 pounds remaining to buy shares for my ISA and would like to buy 4000 pounds worth of shares in one company, but I'm being blocked from buying due to the consideration fee amounting to a total of 52 pounds and not their minimum 90 pounds. 

What options are there?

Should I be placing an order On Quote rather than On Exchange?

Hi Novice27 - I'm not entirely sure what's happened here. We don't set a 'minimum fee' of £90. 

It might be the case that your trade value (including stamp duty, and IG commissions) is exceeding your cash balance. 

If you're still having problems please contact our help desk for a resolution.

    • Thursday's pre-market big names and charts.
    • US durable goods data at 1:30 pm today. Dow and S&P still loitering just under the ATHs losing momentum but not looking too concerned, still waiting for a push. On the H1 Dow working it's way up to the new daily pivot around 26600 and Dax looking up at a first target of yesterday's high at 12350.
    • @Xtian, Unfortunately the DRIP option is not available on IG. I accept this is disappointing for those who really want this option. This question keeps on constantly appearing. There are other threads on this very question where you will find more detail. If you type 'DRIP' or 'Dividend Reinvestment' in the search box and press enter then you should find other threads with this very question. 
    • @tombarrow, On IG's UK Spread Betting platform there are quite a few Commodities that have both the 'Spot' and 'Futures' option available trade. There are some where just 'Spot' is available and others where 'Futures' is just available. You will have to go through them to ascertain which they are. If you look at Precious Metals then they all have a 'Spot' and 'Futures' option. I suppose there is more liquidity from a markets / trading perspective which could possibly be the reason for this. Yes there is overnight funding for 'Spot'. You are right 'Futures' do not have overnight funding but the spreads are less attractive.  No overnight funding will not be displayed on the trade. IG will inform you of the charges by sending you a daily statement which includes them. You can alternatively go to the charges / cost section and try and work out the charges yourself.
    • Hi there New to trading metals and wanted to understand a bit more about the spot and futures pricing. I'll make the question in sections so it is easier to answer. 1) For base metals it seems only HG Copper has a futures and spot option. Does this mean there are no futures trading for the other metals? Or is the spot price derived from the LME 3 Month Futures Price? 2) Are there expiry dates on the spot prices and is there overnight funding for spot? (I am aware futures do not have overnight funding but are embedded into the spreads).   3) If there is overnight funding or an expiry date will they be displayed on the trade?
