Share Dealing Ticket - nos alongside buy/sell prices

Recommended Posts

I have joined IG to access ASX stocks since charges at my previous broker went through the roof.

I started buying AUD shares with TDW years ago, but in recent years all I have done is reinvest the AUD$ dividends from my main stock into a much cheaper ASX share.

Commission charges of £20 per transaction and new account charges of £18 pm (non-refundable trading credit) would wipe out a ridiculous proportion of my biannual dividends.

They throw in one free trade worth  £8 to claim it is only £10 pm - oh yeah?

ASX trades are £20 each so no idea what concession I'd get? - did not wait to find out!

12 months x £18 (£216) plus 2 buys p.a. @ £20 (£40) less 2 unknown rebates is no joke!

Compare that to IG , 2 x AUD 10 (around £11) and my move makes perfect sense. Add FX charges of 0.5% (GBP/AUD) here with 1.5% at Interactive Investors , and I'm happy.

================

Now to my question, On share dealing tickets I see the buy and sell prices , but alongside each is a number.

I thought they were running totals of the numbers bought and sold that day until the number bought went down?

On busy stocks all sorts of numbers flash up in random order - when the market is closed they can be 1 or blank (I think).

Cannot find any reference to them in tutorials or these pages, please help.

Hi, can you post a screen shot of the ticket pointing out the number you are referring to.

TOU is very quiet on ASX most of the time so the 254,434 and 43,946 may not change within hours.

I can only think it is the number traded at the price shown, judging by the busy shares.

I tried to sell at 0.120 but there were no takers so I guess the sell price is 0.115 or lower and buy is actually 0.120

Quite confusing?

I'm not familiar with the share dealing ticket and you are right the number isn't on the instruction videos. The only thing I can see that is remotely close are volume figures (see pic)

Hopefully someone will let us know.

Thanks for trying Casey.

Incidentally, Casey or Stoner was one of my first choices for my 'handle' but then I thought of Chris and Jack Holder, who have a history of riding with Poole Pirates (my local speedway team) and that  was much easier to finish off.

TOU are TLOU on AIM, the busier market place for them by an Aussie mile. A couple of times my best option (shares obtainable for the dividend) was to suffer the loss on FX in converting my dividend to GBP and buy on AIM for £8 rather than £20 on ASX..

That approach is still available to me here, even more so in fact , I can choose which market and IG do the currency conversion as part of the trade. Funny but swings and roundabouts now mean I'll be paying £8 on AIM, and £5+ on ASX unless I become a frequent trader (£5) which is becoming increasingly likely. Loving it here, am thinking of moving my ISA over but that broker charges to close an account (one of the few downsides there, but never thought I'd be tempted to leave them. They charge £5.95 per transaction full stop with no pressure to trade, I guess I'll stay there).

 

Thanks again.

Casey, I think you've nailed looking at you snapshot.

212,966 was one of the numbers I saw a day or two back. It must be the size of the last trade whenever that was?

The indicative share price is presumably from those trades too .... which is why my offers are not accepted.

 

The update to live data action is now in context too!

It leads to this section (starting) ..

Data Feeds

Data feeds give you control over which shares and live prices you see.

Activating one of the data feeds below incurs a small monthly fee. However, we will refund this fee in each month that you make the minimum number of trades on that exchange. This number is indicated in the column marked ‘Rebate level’.

Sorted! Cheers, two birds with one stone there! Wondered what that meant.

    • Hi guys, I am wondering if you can help me calm my blood pressure. Just started learning how to trade and left a long position open by mistake today and did not manage to close - GBP/CAD. Is there any way to close it or minimise the risk of losing money. My account is not big at all but I am most worried about losing more and/or going on a negative balance.   Any suggestions?   Best regards!
    • @dmedin, I totally agree.  I want to see the so called experts on IG Community that know it all and have lots of knowledge, intelligence, wisdom and cannot be wrong 'people'  to prove this. They will not as they do not really want to help anyone on IG Community as they are selfish apart from sharing their posts, sharing links, sharing technical and complex information and everything BUT what people on IG Community are looking for. They then get defensive, abusive, rude and really turn the screw so that their real character comes out.  I am a bad trader. I have no knowledge. I have no experience. There you go. I am sure this will satisfy some on the IG Community. So those who do have knowledge, do have experience and think they are superior I would love them to response to @dmedin and demonstrate that they are profitable traders who consistently make profits year upon year and pay a lot of tax to their tax authorities as they obviously do not use the tax efficient advantage of spread betting. 
    • I would love to see anyone prove they were consistently profitable from trading over 12 months.  Such evidence is hard to come by.
