crash, have you never bought below 14.7p? Or sold higher than 14.7p?
If so, you can safely say you have never achieved today's average. (I think?).
BUT do not believe your broker's figures! If you have traded over the years and made profits your broker's total for your holding will be madly out!
Mine says I have spent over £800k on my Sirius holding which I can safely say is garbage.
If you buy well and sell for a profit, then buy well again, they will show the price you paid for your holding is the initial buy price PLUS profits (ignoring duty and commission).
I have been wheeling and dealing CBA /ASX on IG and IG were showing my average as $82.1
But they provide wonderful statistics for account activity which you can download into a spreadsheet.
When I totalled up what I had deposited into my account , it was seriously less than I had spent on my $82.1 average shares!
Using theactivity sheet, I have cracked it, and my true average in $77.8 , a price that has not been achievable in the two months my account has operated. I hope you followed that ok.
In fact I proved that they have a bug. They show on my history that I own 234 shares because a sale of 118 shares is missing! They told me it was settlement date issues but settlement is long gone, and the 118 transaction is still missing, as is another sell of over 100k shares on my other ASX holding.
I bought a new foam type tube pre-filter for my repied pond pump , knowing how they clog up massively.
I had a brainwave and cut off the leg of Liz's tights and forced it over the filter!
The pump was pumping low volumes overnight so I removed it and just put the hose on it.
30 seconds later it was like new and functioning perfectly, and the job was so clean.
I used a fine spray which was enough to wash the rubbish off easily.
It is wonderful what you can find in ladies' tights :O)
Well done jupiter, great find, and many thanks to Andrew Scott for drawing extra information out of Colm which may or may not have been forthcoming. Andrew is probably as knowledgable as anyone on our gold mine?
The interview confirms what I thought I'd seen about the CFD and gas flows being regulated (slowed in other words) when Tom was posting here.
I hope none of you sold recently because it sounds like all systems are go imho.
They have some brass. But ASX and AIM are now below 5p to sell so that is a consolation for them.
If flow rates are confirmed there won't be much chance of getting those shares back without a loss however.
I just checked my self assessment because I told HMRI I retired in February and that I could see nowhere on my self assessment to register the amounts I inherited from my lovely wife. BUT her money was distributed between me and the kids so there was no tax liability (afaik).
Have expected a snail mail or a message back but zilch!
I have read that the self employed have difficulties over £100 late submissions once they retire, so I filled it in early (for me) to head off such demands y clearing the air in advance.
A feature I found this morning was super! I was looking around confirmation they agreed my figures, and saw Personal Tax option, clicked, and saw NI contributions! Clicked it and loved the outcome!
48 years fully up to date! And a year by year summary.
You have contributions from
Self-employment: 52 weeks
You have contributions from
Self-employment: 53 weeks
And my final year of paying NI, when I was employed, unemployed, and took up taxiing
(i.e. self employed) ....
You have contributions from
Paid employment: £1,691.20
National Insurance credits: 20 weeks
These may have been added to your record if you were ill/disabled, unemployed, caring for someone full-time or on jury service.
Earlier years show how much was paid (employee) and when I had my company (freelancing) I was deemed to be an employee of my own company! I could not remember what my status was in those days. I guess the NI shows roughly how much you were earning years ago?
My figures do not show before 1975, i.e.
Up to 1975
Our records show you have 11 full years up to 5 April 1975
NE, Am I human or am I dancer :O)
Bought Poppy her sardines yesterday.
When I looked at my receipt the ones in sunflower oil were 40p (the regular price for several years) but the ones in brine were 45p!
How does salt water cost more?
Tesco have shot themselves in the foot , because ASDA charge 34p now for the same size tin (but have discontinued brine) , and Morrisons have reduced their brine FROM 45p to 40p!
I looked up sardines in brine , and people expressed concern at dogs having salt!
Never thought about that, but there is only a tablespoon of brine at most?
She seems fine (had her jab on Friday and vet said she is good) but she's had brine all her life.
Sardines for brekkie, Beef, Lamb, Turkey or Chicken at night in a tin (with offal for sue).
Is there a salt tax now perhaps? Morrisons might be clearing the last of their stock to phase them out?
Bob, I lived a short walk from Exeter Falcons and took my first born to speedway when he was days or weeks old.That was 1972 and I remember Ivan well , very stylish but looked too safe, like Malcolm Simmonds . His main opponent was probably Ole Olson, much more of a risk taker. People were split between them. My favourite in later years was Vaclav Verner - an out and out racer. He was backup to Peter Prinsloo, and seemed as interested in beating him as the opponents! Paid bonuses didn't matter?
I bought a hoe from Neil Middeditch's warehouse, and we reminisced about the old days. Told him Vaclav was my favourite, and Neil had only just put the phone down on him. He builds engines or whole bikes nowadays - memory is rubbish on recent events - and is very successful! The hoe was for cutting off weeds on a block paved drive and does the trick for 2 or 3 quid!
Make that 15 minutes they check for "x x x x " as well as "xxxx"!
Anybody want to short their shares with me? I'll promise you 22p in 5 years time? If I survive that long .....
I wonder what level people would trade and over what period, given a genuine offer?
50p in 3 years, £1 in 5 years, £1.50 in 7 years ..... would any of them attract you to lend yours?
Remember you get compensated for any interim dividends from your playing partner's escrow account.
LSE swear word checking must have taken 10 minutes to specify, write and test!
Good job they aren't fish mongers selling ****les and mussels!
Last week I said Poppy "******* e d her head from side to side" which came out as ****ed her head, really poor!
All the asterisks are mine ....
GK I am in awe of your suggestion - brilliant!
The taxi driving was meant to be for 1 year! I rejected the idea every time I went to the job centre to sign on and keep my NI up to date. They refused any benefits because of my pied a terre in Kennington (my home during the week in London) and the family home in Dorset. Two properties, the flat was also my pension scheme! Another long term plan ruined because two mortgages an no income! I had to sell it.
Anyway, after surviving on tax rebates and savings I was able to pay off the mortgage in Dorset with the profit from the flat but pension was scuppered. Job centre then said I qualified for a back to work incentive of £60 pw for 12 months tax free, IF I EARNED LESS THAN £15K! No jobs in IT around Poole at the time (was offered £16k pa and then gave up to continue building a web site), and taxi driving was surely less than £15k, cough, cough, being cash based, so I took it out of pique!
My daughter said I was more interesting as a taxi driver - did not use computer speak all the time!
The smoking ban and price of booze in pubs changed the job dramatically for a night driver. But I could not face driving in traffic all day! My taxi boss died of cancer so I did not want to leave his widow in the lurch, and it ended up as my longest job in one post! One year became 2 etc etc etc.
So now you know why I was posting very late at night :O)
Many thanks Lekka, I have always tried to pass on my experience to others throughout my career.
Junior programmers, in particular, seemed to benefit. Many IT eengineers keep their knowledge to themselves believing knowledge is power (if others don't have it).
Now I am retired and my wife passed on, my main contact with the outside world is fellow dog owners and chatrooms on LSE. So you poor devils are suffering my habit of a lifetime, passing on knowledge! I took a job taxi driving and kept it going because it was fun meeting all sorts of people and my wife had stage 4 cancer in 2012 so we knew her life was limited. Thought it would get me out and about afterwards but then my aneurism put paid to taxi driving from February. My long term plan lasted from September to February - nothing seems to work out for me easily. Putting the bike back on the road is quite a challenge - but it might be cheaper than going to Switzerland.
The IG posts can be summarised quite simply - I think they are compelling, but in a nutshell, comparing them to my inherited dealer after sticking with TDW and their takeover broker for too long to do ASX trading (and UK etc)....
IG has no annual fees (for accounts above £15k) and charges of A$10 (£5.50 and rising) , a little bit better than over £200pa plus £20 per trade? If ASX is cheaper than AIM/FTSE shares they could be the one to buy?
The fee is A$10 if you opt for multi-currency accounting (0.1% if it is over A$10) and trade in AUD.
And just think , your AUD value, whether in shares or cash, is increasing as the pound weakens!
Currently, a win win but the £ might reverse its trend one day. No problems, deal on AIM for £8 a trade or £5 for frequent traders.
Good point to close this thread.
For those who did follow my experience of IG , the bank transfer of £60 is now on my account though the chance to buy at 4.2p equivalent on ASX is not.
They say "up to 3 days" but of course the £250 minimum does not apply.
End of ramp , which I tried to do in an open minded way.
No more from me on how IG works for share dealing , except to say there have different LLoyd accounts for share dealing deposits and CFD dealing. And paying by credit card through Paypal does not appear to cost more than through a debit card. Use sensibly if you take advantage of that facility. Only use if you pay your credit card off every month!
If you do, it is a free pay-day loan if the price is too good to pass on TLOU or TOU. GLA.
