If other brokers are doing anything like Halifax ie: restricting auto: sales to 15000 or £600, then thats pretty controlling.....Decided to stick for the moment, far to dodgy after all this time. Cheers frus.
why in earth does my trade not show, only very small in number but strange. Hopefully a guru out there will know? had this on new river also and then shares shot up, ok div to be paid a few days after.
frus, sorry for the delay in coming back to you, I am quite busy today,.... but to answer your question, I would not be personally happy doing a "best at" order because when I first started trading I was obviously new and got caught out with a crazy price..... can you not ask them to just give you a price for your order to be filled?? even if it's at a higher price at least you will know.... if not tell them that they are useless and that you will be thinking of changing your broker, not that that will make a lot of difference...... you could change your broker, but to be honest with all the news due I would be even more unhappy not holding at all while they transfer your shares to your new account. .... difficult one to answer to be honest, and obviously the final choice has to be yours mate....BUT looking at the trading today I would say news of some sort's is on the way so be careful.....GL in what you choose to do mate.......
As I am no expert and can't really give you the proper advice/answers that you require, if I was you I would call another broker and see what they suggest mate....at least then you will be getting professional advice ....
Regarding the Halifax....Today their auto trading only allows me to sell upto 15k shares (value £600) Have just come off the phone where they say its not their fault, it's all the mm's will allow, I explained that imo this was a pittance and to put me on to a more senior person they declined saying they would only say the same. I went on to say I had friends who had different brokers who could sell thousands even tens of thousands and therefore what class does that leave the Halifax in....The only thing they could offer was some kind of trade to be dealt with as best as possible in the market with no guarantee of price...Your comments grately appreciated.
