    Looking for information here. If you place a day limit order and it does not execute at that price do you get charged for placing the order. Anyone know what happens here, is your order just cancelled at end of day with not fee applied or is there a charged for placing this order. Thanks for your input.

    You are not charged anything unless the trade completes either fully or partially.

    Looking for information here, i opened an account with Degiro and have bought stock n Dollars and sold it today. When buying, degiro will exchange euro to dollars for a fee and thats all ok, when you sell the stock it sells in dollars and exchanges you money back to euro. My question is if it is possible to keep the dollar amount in my account as dollars as i will be mainly buying stock from the US, while the exchange rate is ok i would prefer not to have to pay it when buying and selling. Anyone with an Degiro account help me with this. Still new to all
    So am learning all the time time Appreciate anu help i can get.

    Need to set up manual currency holding. You will need some Euro in your account to cover fees, as these are charged in your base currency.

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong but seems to cost €10 plus 0.02% per exchange

    As they happen, they're included in the total order amount screen before you confirm.

    @csfh17 thanks for that. Anyone know what the rules are around day trading. From what i know you need to have an account with 'X' amount in it and if you dont you can only do 3 day trades a week, is that through? Anyone shead some light on this for me. I don't plan to say trade but would like to do a few every now and then wgen the operturity arrises. Thanks again for you help with this.

    Hi everybody, I have a question regarding setting a limit trade. I'm new to trading but so far so good. My question is when you set a limit trade to buy at say 'X' and it reaches that value, what prevents the shares been bought at that value when reached and hence the request to buy stays active even though the value was reached. It has happened me twice in the last couple of weeks, once on a limit trade to buy and once on a limit trade to sell. Any input on this would be great.

    The most common reason would be insufficient amount of shares being sold at that price.

    I didn't think there was any rules with Degiro. I buy and sell multiple times with some stocks on a given day.

    @inStaSte, were does the 3 trades in 5 days rule come from if you acount is under25K, is that just american brokers? do brokers have there own rules, still confused about this rul

    There is no rule, your imagining it

    One thing about degiro to watch for is the exchange connection fee, I seem to be paying €7.50 in fees every couple of months for holding etf's on a few different markets
