Just a reminder for anyone with a Halifax shares account, that they are having one of their regular 'Cheap Dealing Days' this coming Thursday, April 23rd, between 12.15pm and 2.15pm -

Halifax Reduced Dealing Commission -

  • Reduced dealing commission of £3.95 per on-line trade during our offer times
  • On the day of our offer you’ll be able to trade UK shares between 12:15pm –2:15pm and international shares all day for £3.95 per on-line trade.
  • All UK purchases are subject to stamp duty at 0.5% (excluding AIM stocks). A currency conversion charge of 1.25% is applied on international trades.

A good opportunity for a bit of a spring clean for me, with a couple of tiny legacy holdings getting the boot from my non-ISA account, and another opportunity for a little more CGT-management to occur....

Cheers,

Itsallaguess

Thanks for these handy reminders guys.

As a regular user of that site on a monthly basis for my top ups in my HYP, the charge is just £2 plus stamp duty. I’m making use of the service this Thursday when I make a small top up of my SSE holdings.

Ian, I too use the two quid regular investment days (4 per month usually) for my buys but occasionally, as on this occasion, I sell a few holdings either by setting a limit order £12 or using the above service at £3.95. It'll be a few years until I have sheltered all my investments so I inevitable have to make some sales each year so a discount is appreciated though a limit order can capture a better price if one can wait.

Hi again kempijon. My HYP is held in my ISA, and I have no other investments outside of that. I'm known hereabouts for being to fickle for my own good sometimes, as I've dropped a number of holdings in the past, but not on the cheapo days unfortunately. More fool me (small 'f' intended). Nowadays I'm trying to be a better HYPer, and concentrate more on long term holding of my shares. I have 25 in my HYP, and I'm happy with them all, and have no intention of selling them currently. Should I do so in the future I'll certainly keep an eye out for the cheaper dealing days, but as I said, I have no current plans to sell anything.

Ian.
