    There is no price info quoted so you have to use something like google finance to get an idea of where it is (when the market is open). I just realised this..

    So you'll need to be up between the hours of 1am and 7am to make the trades here in Ireland - take a price from google finance as your limit price although it is 20mins delayed so it won't start showing prices until around 1.20am

    If your order doesn't get filled try increasing your limit order slightly as the price will have moved during the 20min delay...and with lithium it's probably gone up :pac:

    Thanks, I had an idea of the price and I have an order in. I will also be up for 6 so I can revise it in the morning if necessary.

    Looking at the fee schedule, I see that Ireland is the only European exchange which isn't offered a €60 fee cap on transactions by Degiro:

    https://www.degiro.ie/data/pdf/ie/IE_Feeschedule.pdf

    0.04% without a cap could actually prove fairly hefty. Seems like we are getting slightly shafted here! I wonder why Ireland is singled out like this.

    There is no facility (that I can find) in my account to view transaction charges.


  • Registered Users Posts: 537 ✭✭✭topper_harley2


    .04% of E100,000 is only E40 quid! Hardly hefty.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 386 ✭✭The Minstrel

    Yeah I saw that. My mistake.

    I've had a few error messages when making a purchase. "Order worst case execution value (including estimated fee) is x and spending limit is x."
    ...when I've clearly had a 50 or 60 quid gap to play with yet the order cannot be processed. Was wondering if I'm doing something wrong... :-(

    You'll pay stamp duty on Irish shares also - you may not have a sufficient balance to do the order and incur the related costs.

    DO I pay fees when both buying and selling shares? or is it just when buying?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,100 ✭✭✭dinneenp


    I know the amount invested shouldn't matter, if a broker is good they're good....but would you use Degiro if buying €20k plus of shares?
    I presume the answer should be yes but just wanted opinions.
    Thanks in advance,
    Pa.

    Both.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,299 ✭✭✭scheister


    most likely a daft question but ill ask anyway

    Ive started recently using degiro. Ive notice for my first few trade I have been charged Irish stamp duty. AFAIK if the purchase of shares is for less then €1,000 stamp duty does not apply.

    I have a couple of funds with Rabo. Does Degiro have similar funds? Is there a list anywhere? I cant seem to find a list on their website.

    This is a list of commission-free ETFs that DeGiro offer. There's a few terms & conditions with it (available on their website) but nothing nasty like Rabo's entrance and exit fees:

    Anyone know how much transaction fees would be to buy DUST ETF?

    A word of caution:-
    DUST is an extremely aggressive inverse play“the market for DUST is extremely active” on perhaps the most widely followed gold mining index—the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index—and the widely held ETF that tracks it: GDX.
    The index tracks about 30 firms engaged in the precious metals mining industry globally, with a strong bias to large gold and silver mining firms. DUST promises to provide inverse exposure to these firms with a leverage factor of 3 on a daily basis.
    The last point is important, because investors trying to make a long-term bet against gold mining shares can only use DUST to do so if they are willing to frequently adjust their position in the fund.
    The good news is the market for DUST is extremely active, as evidenced by the fact that it trades in large volumes each day, although spreads can be significant. Its expense ratio is high, to be sure, but most traders won't hold the fund for long enough for those costs to be a major factor.

    I just opened an account with them a couple of weeks ago but I haven't used the broker yet.

    Anyone knows where I can find the difference between basic account (mine at the moment), Active account and Trader account?

    I could only find the differences between custody and standard profile but unsure if it is the same.

    https://www.degiro.ie/helpcenter/faq/my-account/909

    On the other hand, at first look, I find the charts and lay out very basic (even though on the website they say they have the best technology and best broker, I suppose it just does the basic (buying and selling). Not good enough for technical trading. Good price anyway, specially compared to the rip off from other brokers or banks in Ireland.

    Custody vs Non-custody account; What are the pros & cons of each?

    As a normal person looking to invest a small amount, which should I choose?

    From their site:

    "With a Custody profile the securities are held separately and are unable to be loaned out to third parties.

    This profile has a number of other differences compared to regular account types, derivatives are not able to be traded, real time prices are not available for the Euronext exchanges and a different fee is applied for the profile. However you are still able to profit from low fees and save money through trading with DEGIRO."

    Custody is 'safer', but both are probably fine for a normal trader. Real-time prices are the best reason for you to choose non-custody.

    Hello, I can't see how I add a company to my 'favourites'. Can someone enlighten me, I'd be grateful, thanks ( looking at Botswana Diamonds on LSE)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,019 ✭✭✭ct5amr2ig1nfhp


    When you click into a stock, look at the stock name on the left. You'll see green B and red S. Next to it you'll see a star to add to favourites.


  • Registered Users Posts: 910 ✭✭✭Captainsatnav


    Hi - another noob question. I placed a buy limit order @ €5.67 this morning. As far as I can see the lowest this particular share price went today was €5.69 but in my portfolio tab it shows me as having bought the shares?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,019 ✭✭✭ct5amr2ig1nfhp


    What is the stock and exchange? Is the exchange data real time or delayed?

    In the same area I mentioned above, at the end of the row might be a number in a blue square. For example your Botswana Diamonds stock on the LSE which is 15 minutes delayed, so you'll see "15". if you hover over the square, it gives more information.


  • Registered Users Posts: 910 ✭✭✭Captainsatnav


    It's Dalata on the Irish Exchange. The blue square says it's real time.

    (Thanks for taking the time to respond by the way - I appreciate it)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,019 ✭✭✭ct5amr2ig1nfhp


    No problem. it's showing as low of 5.65 now so probably just a delay in the data updating.
