Trades £25,000


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I make frequent trades over £25,000, often daily, but I have to do it in two purchases. There is no problem with selling. I have tried phoning the helpline but but I was told it was not possible to make share purchases over £25,000 Is there t any way that one can can make purchases over £25,000 in one transaction?.

I am a fugitive from another well-known company where I was a very satisfied client until they added a 20 minute time out feature.

I still have my ISA account with them which I want to move to IG, but again, I would need to be able to to trade over £25,000.

Thanks for reading.

Hey @RegRow

Thanks for your post. 

With our share dealing/ ISA accounts we have a fixed commission up to £25,000. If you want to trade more than £25K in one go you can get your commission structure changed to 5 basis points (0.05%). However, if you work out the exposure of your trade you will be able to determine what's more cost effective for you. 

You can find our commission structure here: https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/costs-fees

Example: 

If you were looking to buy £40K worth of the same UK shares. You could either: 

1. Do one trade with exposure £25, then another with £15K and pay (£8 x 2) £16

or 

2. £40K x 0.05% = £20 

 

Do note that when you trade a certain amount of trades in the previous month your commission with reduce. 

 

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions let me know.

I am having the same issue but thanks for the explanation, which IG live chat was completely unable to deal with just now. They are adamant that there is no limit on purchases. Very poor advice, which I find to be the norm. 

How do you get the commission structure changed?

If you want the commission structure changed to 5 basis points you will need to call us and ask the person on the phone to change the settings with the shares desk.

    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
    • Oliver Smith @ollysmithtravel 15h After three lockdowns, we've got Europe's highest Covid death toll, its 2nd biggest economic downturn, 50,000+ non-Covid excess deaths, a 5m+ NHS waiting list, a mental health crisis, and we still haven't got our freedoms back. But people still think lockdowns work.   .  
    • I remember the BBC reporting in  front of world trade building 7 saying it had collapsed when it was clearly still standing and then hours later it "suddenly" collapsed - Sept 11th 2001 David Icke did a great publication on that "terrorist attack" which lead to UK/USA forces invading Iraq and afghanistan, along with implementing onerous checks at all airports since - 20 years later we still haven't had another plane hijacked and crashed into anything, probably because if it had it would prove that aviation fuel can't melt steel structural joists, or bring a building down in a vertical fashion as per a controlled explosion I'm yet to be convinced on Covid, but it absolutely fits in with the totalitarian tiptoe Icke says is happening and fits in being an absolute valid reason to vaccinate the entire globe
