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.

(I provided a file showing a picture of the transactions taken by the trade)commission2.thumb.png.3d769e82d865400cfd6dcf483c0416ea.png

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

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
