@Saintly...A bed and ISA would have been a good idea if you just want to rebuy the shares from an ISA account and largely retain the same amount of shares. However, if you want to chance your arm that there'll be a drop in the sp back down to 75/76/77p etc then doing a manual transfer and rebuying will net extra shares. I'm thinking of doing this and selling my trading shares and adding them to my lloy ISA shares holding once I feel we've reached the top of this rise. Hopefully in the process netting an extra 500-1000 shares.
Your broker should have carried out a bed and ISA transfer which would have resulted in lower charges to yourself and is carried out instantly. Having been an admin manager for a large stockbroker this procedure was carried out on a regular basis.
As it’s Friday just sold 15k worth @ 80.88 to transfer to the ISA a/c for this years limit. Because you can deal on this amount straight away, I phoned up to make the transfer of monies. Oops, can’t actually move monies until settlement date which will be next Tuesday. Earliest date in the ISA a/c will be next Wednesday. Oh well as I said it’s Friday... What was I thinking, especially as it’s still rising and I thought I would be clever before ‘’the Friday pullback’’
