I use interactive investor (iii) £10 per trade or £5 for regular trades. They do make you pay £20 per qtr (£80 per year) but this is converted into a trade allowance so as long as you make 8 trades per year its free if that makes sense. Reasonable online interface and phone app.
perhaps someone can answer a question for me and it doesnt refer to bkir specifically
most of us know that the 50 day moving average being above the 200 is a bullish signal but when opening up charts , which time frame should be used to get this reading , beit on google finance or yahoo etc
is it the one year chart , six month , three month , one month
i would have thought it was the one year so as to allow for 200 days
im with saxo , used to be with TD , if you can tollerate their awful platform and its constant errors , they are an incredibly cheap broker to use , i liked them overall , saxo are slightly more expensive but ten times more professional
goodbody are outright robbers in terms of commisions , avoid like the plague , all the big irish brokers take the p1ss when it comes to charges
I wont embarrass myself trying to answer your first question.
I'm with TD. 20 euro per trade if you are not a regular trader. 15 if you are a regular trader. Also, no quarterly charge with them. From their website...

Saxo bank in the UK provide their platform for their CFD trading options if you want to go that route.
I cant remember if you are based in Ireland or not, if so avoid Goodbodys, their commission is horrendous
Hi, I use Hargreaves Lansdown they seem to do a good job and I've no real issues from them. I don't know the volumes that your playing with but I just say how much I want to trade and they charge me £11.95 for the trade. I haven't had to split the trade up. Hope this helps. Dog
provided we finish above 30 cents today , i think we move back up to around .323 in the coming week but i think we may slip back to 30 cents again after that and possibly test the fifty day moving average of .285
effectively i think we could be range bound for a little while before 33 cents is taken out proper , with stress tests only a month away and this traditionally being the weakest time of year for stocks , it seems unlikely that we roar towards 38 in the short term
My trade earlier was a split trade so I paid two transaction fees for it. Is there any way you can avoid this because in theory my broker could have charged me three or four times for the trade if he had to split the order over three or four transactions to fill the order. I am also worried that I may have the same problem when I sell. Perhaps I might change broker to fully online. Anyboby got any ideas or advice about this idea. Up to now I was avoiding it because it makes trading a bit like playing online gambling. At the moment I have to contact my broker by phone which means I need to think more about the actions I take.
