  1. Hey VickyB Others have mentioned this before and the feedback has been passed on. We're looking at better ways to let traders know about all the costs involved with one trade before they open the position. Instant conversion means the position will convert at the exchange rate at the time you close the position. Daily means at the end of the day we will convert your positions. The amount depends on the market you're trading on: https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-igs-shares-cfd-product-details All the best
  2. If you were trying to amend an order our broker was having issues at that time. If this happens again the best thing to do is call us and we will be able to amend it on our side. The issue was occurring from around 14:30-16:00. All the best and apologies for the inconvenience.
  3. Hey, When you are shorting a stock via a DFB spread bet or cash CFD, you will incur a borrow charge. The borrow charge will be accounted for in a daily cash adjustment applied to your account. The charge varies according to the stock, is notified to us by our brokers or agents and includes a 0.5% administration fee. The borrow charge, and the ability to hold a short position, can be changed at short notice. To determine whether a borrow charge applies and if so, what the charge is, call our dealers in advance of betting/trading. This isn't a charge IG have created it is passed on fro

  11. Hey @AnnieV, 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. It'll cost £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 us.
  12. Hey, If you move to France you can have a CFD account. When you change your address your account normally goes to closings only (meaning you can leave your positions open until you want to close them) however you will have to reapply with the French office (if you speak French) or EN office if you need an English platform. Both of the accounts allow you to have CFD accounts. All the best
