Hi there,

I live in the UK and would like to start trading Penny Stocks.

Does the IG platform cater for that kind of trades?

 

Thank you

Depends on how 'penny' stock you mean. You can spread bet and CFD trade on small market cap stocks, which in theory have stock in the value of pennies. You need to be mindful of the market cap though. That's the main thing.

IG requires Mcap of I think about £10million.

there are some interesting small market cap stocks out there though which trade for pennies and have more than 10 mil mcap. I guess reason for this is holding a significant percentage of the company in a spread betting account and liquidity and everything. Imagine at 5% margin deposit you'd only need £150,000 to own 5% of the company at £3m which wouldn't take long to accumulate on the platform.

there is differing criteria for IG listings for leveraged and non-leveraged stocks, see link below posted just a couple of days ago on AIM stocks, and don't forget the IG DMA platform for leveraged or non-leveraged share dealing direct on the LSE.

Interesting. So the Penny stocks / AIM markets which they say to have a look at are

  1. Burford Capital: world's largest provider of arbitration and litigation finance
  2. Fevertree Drinks: the upmarket mixer maker
  3. Hutchinson China MediTech: the biopharma and pharma stock
  4. ASOS: fast fashion for millennials
  5. Abcam: a profitable biopharma business

Interestingly ASOS are down over 50% over the last 12 months and they've made the list. I know there are also one of AIMs largest success stories up quadruple digit % since their initial float. Remember when they were called As Seen On Screen? And they used to highlight things which people on Big Brother used to wear etc.... ahhh the good old days.

Hi All,

Please aware of the penny stock fee in IG .

I brought 5000 share per share @ 0.48507   the total amount was 2425.35 . This will cost commission of  100 $ for BUY and for your sell  fee is same ie 100 $. Like other platform IG does not cap the commission fee to 1%.  It could have been nice if  IG charge same as other platform.

I will never buy less 5 $ penney stock from IG .

    • Intrigued by Mande's "Onchain Credibility Hub"! DESO's user-owned data is another great idea for Web3. HMN's talent marketplace is a strong piece too. Bitget listing is cool, but focus should be on Mande's tech! Synergy possible: Mande verifies skills, HMN finds matching projects
    • Telcoin's definitely shaking things up with affordable mobile transfers! But MOB sounds interesting for secure everyday payments. Abra seems like a one-stop shop for global money stuff. Telcoin being on Bitget is cool, but competition is healthy! Maybe Telcoin can focus on low-cost remittances while MobileCoin tackles daily purchases. Telcoin's not the only player, but they're definitely a piece of the puzzle.
    • Telcoin is a frontrunner in leveraging blockchain technology for affordable and accessible mobile money transfers. Intrigued by this concept? Let's explore other projects working to revolutionize how we send and receive money around the world, with a focus on mobile solutions. MobileCoin (MOB), this project aims to provide a secure and private mobile-first cryptocurrency specifically designed for everyday transactions. Abra (ABRA), this global investment app allows users to buy, sell, and trade various cryptocurrencies and assets, including sending and receiving money internationally. So, is Telcoin the only game in town for mobile money transfers cause they got listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not! There are established players and innovative startups tackling this challenge. What do you think? Is Telcoin the future of mobile money transfers, or just a piece of the puzzle? Have you explored any other mobile money transfer projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
