I just found out how.  Go to My IG >> Live accounts >> currency conversion.  There, you can set the currency conversion to "Manual".  Then, the fund you deposited will be in the original currency when you deposit the fund. However, this choice is only available for share trading accounts.  Also, commission will no longer be 0; e.g., for US stocks, the current commission will be $0.02 per share, with $10 minimum charge.

I am Julien and new to IG share dealing account.

I would like to set a multi-currency account?

Can anyone explain how to do that?


Cheers, Julien.


Hi, I've not heard of a multi-currency account, you can have multiple accounts of different currencies and transfer funds between them. You would need to email the help desk for clarification and to set the accounts up.

    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
    • The DMA platform is a special download so you would know if you had it. The IG web based platform as used by most clients is as described below.
