Quarterly custody fee and US trading

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

The terms of the share dealing commission rates and custody fee are such that:

If 3 trades are made in the month prior, the "best rate" is obtained, and; 

If 3 trades are made in the previous quarter, there is no quarterly custody fee. 

 

Therefore, am I right in thinking that we can make 3 US trades (from the UK) per month which will be free from commission, and also avoid the custody fee simultaneously? 

 

Thanks in advance.

You're correct. 

If you're placing the trades to give you the free US commissions (These have to be 3 US trades) then place trades in the next month for free these all count towards your quarterly fee meaning you will not have to pay your quarterly fee. 

All the best.

Ok. I was under the impression that it could be any 3 trades (i.e. 2 UK and 1 US) which would give you the best rate across both types of shares as I don't believe this is explicitly stated anywhere in the terms? 

Thanks for clearing that up.

    • 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.
