  1. I have a nominee account with stock and options for the same company on both AIM and ASX. I am at risk of being charged a Custodial fee on one or t'other account after a price drop/placement. IG have waived te charge for this quarter though I do more than 3 trades a quarter anyway, between the two accounts. No point in having a nominee account now? The ASX company is on the acceptable foreign stocks list for my ISA! I therefore want to close my nominee account entirely and move my stock and options into my ISA. Can I bed and isa all four groups (ASX stock and options, AIM
  2. Not impressed with IG initially - Online Chat went unanswered so I tried the phone and got the same result. I needed the answer quickly because I had a power cut at home and could not complete the 2 trades I needed before trading ended for the week. The first one had gone through so I still needed one more. My only hope was the hour that ASX would be open on Sunday night (UK) though it would already be Monday in Sidney! If anybody on here knew the answer they did not reply so I gave it a go and sold a few shares on ASX. IG's strength showed through immediately. I was able
  3. If I do an ASX trade on February 28th before midnight GMT will that trade counted as February (i.e. GMT) or March (Ozzie time). I have two February trades and need another to receive Frequent Trader status for March.
  4. Of course Davey. It is all I do. I opened a share dealing account from scratch so cannot do anything else unless I opt in for the other stuff. You need to do the opposite and find the option for share dealing I guess. BTW once you succeed the minimum trade seems to be £90 (it was £60 I think). You can get quotes for as few shares as you fancy which is great for calculating the the number of shares you can afford with your balance. I had £51.22p in my account - getting a quote for £51.22 cash came up with a number that cost a few quid less. I upped the number until I g
  5. We know 3 trades in a month are rewarded by a £3 commission rate in the following month. If a February trade settles in March - which of the two months applies please? I have 2 trades that were completed within March , and a buy on 26th February which settled 2nd March! Is that 2 or 3 trades in March. Recent history shows 2 , but last 90 days history shows 3 , for March, because the trade date shows on the former, and settlement date on the latter.
  6. Thanks Big Deal, I have done quite a bit of ASX trading since and twigged how it works. Occasionally I buy more than is shown and I get precisely the number shown on a partial fill, and the next lowest price appears on the ticket! I edit my ticket to that price and it does the same again if my order has not been filled. I usually have to edit the number being bought (which has to be the original TOTAL less all partials that you want) for lack of funds! First time I did that, I changed the number wanted to the number available at the new limit price, and of course (with hindsight
  7. Casey, I think you've nailed looking at you snapshot. 212,966 was one of the numbers I saw a day or two back. It must be the size of the last trade whenever that was? The indicative share price is presumably from those trades too .... which is why my offers are not accepted. The update to live data action is now in context too! It leads to this section (starting) .. Data Feeds Data feeds give you control over which shares and live prices you see. Activating one of the data feeds below incurs a small mo
  8. Thanks for trying Casey. Incidentally, Casey or Stoner was one of my first choices for my 'handle' but then I thought of Chris and Jack Holder, who have a history of riding with Poole Pirates (my local speedway team) and that was much easier to finish off. TOU are TLOU on AIM, the busier market place for them by an Aussie mile. A couple of times my best option (shares obtainable for the dividend) was to suffer the loss on FX in converting my dividend to GBP and buy on AIM for £8 rather than £20 on ASX.. That approach is still available to me here, even more so in fact , I can c
  9. TOU is very quiet on ASX most of the time so the 254,434 and 43,946 may not change within hours. I can only think it is the number traded at the price shown, judging by the busy shares. I tried to sell at 0.120 but there were no takers so I guess the sell price is 0.115 or lower and buy is actually 0.120 Quite confusing?
  10. I have joined IG to access ASX stocks since charges at my previous broker went through the roof. I started buying AUD shares with TDW years ago, but in recent years all I have done is reinvest the AUD$ dividends from my main stock into a much cheaper ASX share. Commission charges of £20 per transaction and new account charges of £18 pm (non-refundable trading credit) would wipe out a ridiculous proportion of my biannual dividends. They throw in one free trade worth £8 to claim it is only £10 pm - oh yeah? ASX trades are £20 each so no idea what concession I'd get? - did no
