Hi all, I have just been hit by a £190 conversion fee for trading in Coca Cola for 5 days. Luckily I was still in for a small profit but my rage that IG took so much has got the best of me. Does anyone know how to turn on multi-currency as suggested by pedmurray above? Also if someone could send me a link to the fees involved in doing this I would be very grateful. Many thanks in advance.
Hi all, I've been buying and selling shares on IG for a few years to slowly ease myself into trading. Being risk adverse I've avoided the spread betting account and buy the shares directly, experimenting in event driven trading and trend following. Having had some success and learnt an expensive lesson or two (having a plan is only helpful if you stick to it!), I've caught the bug and want develop my trading further. This forum seems like a great tool to help me do that so I will hopefully get to talk to you all in the weeks and months ahead. Happy trading, Phil
Hi all, I'm Phil. I'm making small, short term equity trades in the FTSE100 and 250 to try and reduce risk while beating the banks interest rates. I'll will probably be able advise on what not to do (not to often I hope)
