Did I get charged commission twice?


Madeline

Question

I'm fairly new to trading on IG and trading as a whole so sorry if this seems a dumb question but I really need help.

So I was experimenting with VERY small amounts of money to get a feel for the platform and what it has to offer when I realised that Tesco PLC charged me 2 x £-10.00 (-£20) - I'm pretty sure I wasn't warned about the commission on my 'preview order' slide. But I'm okay with it. The point is, I've been charged £10 when opening the trade (understandable) and then another £10 after I closed the trade! Is this suppose to happen? I was on my phone when I made the trade and I know it sometimes charges more to do so, but I thought all costs are charged as soon as the position is placed.

You get charged a transaction fee for Buying and a transaction fee for selling ( in this instance 10pound each time)
Might i suggest its best to do less trades but at a higher amount as otherwise the fees can cut into profits espceialyy if doing short time trades

    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
