  2. I’ll keep an eye out, thanks 👍
  3. Any aim in doing an october group buy?
  4. market manipulation true or false

    I think it depends on your definition of manipulated, as in, to what extent. After all, encouraging others to buy more precious metals manipulates the market
  5. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Doesn't sound like much of a deal?

    Sometimes people increase prices temporarily when out of stock to deter people from buying what they can't supply, it's easier than removing and relisting.
  7. Trading 212

    I've opened an account with a small sum. So far I like the platform, it is easy to use and runs quick. However, from discussions with them, they tax Dividends but won't quantify how much they will be doing so. (Inline with HMRC apparently, which may be 7.5%) Now, this may seem to be small fry for the typical retail investor, but if you was looking to amass a small fortune and looking to use dividends for reinvestment or as a pension, then you need to consider this. Naturally, it's up to the individual to declare income from interest/dividends. (Starting above £5,000) Now, on a sum of 100k, the tax may seem fairly nominal, but ultimately, when a stock goes ex-dividend, an investor may lose out when he probably shouldn't. Ill keep everyone up to date.
  8. Trading 212

    Can a mod move this to the trading section?
  9. Hi all, is anyone else aware of the zero commission stock trading by trading 212? I'm currently using HL so obviously this caught my eye. However, they don't hold share certificates in the users names, therefore if their IT fails, could you end up losing shares/equity? Additionally, when holding CFD's, you only receive a net dividend. Im assuming that holding equities via T212 would mean you should receive the gross dividend. (I've emailed for clarification) I've used eToro in the past, and found it to be quite a good platform. But, i want equties as opposed to CFD's in shares. Unfortunately, things aren't wrapped up in an ISA, meaning that investments may not be as well suited for long term as say those on HL. I'd like to use them on riskier stocks (Carillion, dominoes?) in which i can put a few 100's in without being stung for £12 +0.5% in, £12 out. Anyway, i've raised this for discussion so i can hopefully make a more informed decision whether to use them or not. Cheers

    Perhaps excess stock of an item bought some time ago when spot was lower? Either way, I don't think they'll be losing any money on the sale
