Hi, I may be wrong but I don't think you can move shares or other assets between accounts (except cash).

The IG helpdesk should be able to provide a quick answer.

Hey @Paulg54

Thanks for your feedback message.

You can transfer shares from your share dealing account to ISA via the Bed & ISA process, which involves selling the shares and repurchase them on the ISA account. This process can be done over the phone with one of our dealers. Please do ask them on the phone or email us to make sure the stock is ISA eligible.

 The cost is £40 in commission per line of stock to sell the shares on share dealing account but free of charge to repurchase on the ISA. There will also be spread costs which is capped to roughly £30 per line of stock, however, this is generally cheaper for the majority of stocks.

If you're interested in doing so, please call our dealing team on 020 7896 0000 during market hours and we'll be happy to assist.

Alternatively, if the stock is ISA eligible you can sell the stock wait for the funds to settle move the money across then buy it back on your ISA but you would pay two commission charges and the price ay have potentially moved out of your favor. 

I hope this helps :)

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
