    Yeah by late 2013 HER could see exceptional growth. I have no need for the money in HER, so happy to leave it in there as a long term play

    I wish I had opened a long CFD on barc at about 151 about 2weeks ago and sold on Friday at 171. Assuming I had about £5k, I could've opened a £50k position and made about £6k clear after financing costs etc..

    For the love of god don't use leverage until you know exactly what you are doing.

    Hi

    I had an old account with III that I'm looking to re-activate. Should I give it a miss cos of the new £20 fees - which are ridiculous

    I'm gonna call them to recover the account and cancel I think

    SAR is currently in adv stages of a licensing deal at the end of the year.

    Anyone considering it? I'm still in at 3.12p - its currently stable at 1.5p, but given its potential and past performance on good news, it might be one to get into.

    GKP has NOT been performing to expectations. Kind of annoying. Been watching for ages, I was expecting 220p this week.

    Im still in sar, think it was you who was still in it too, when i quoted you several months back! haha

    Its risky to get back in, i wont be tho.

    If gkp goes under 180p might top up, having sold some of ophr shares recently....

    Just seen III charge £20 per quarter now, my original £1011 in shares are now worth a pathetic ~£225. I've basically written the money off and am just going to keep them indefinitely and hope for the best. I'd really rather not lose another £80 a year to III anyone got any suggestions for me? It's two companies and one is a US OTC if that makes a difference.
    Thanks.
    Bloody hell. Glad i'm with h-l, only a share dealing cost, no quarterly fees

    Agreed, I closed my iii.co.uk account I opened in 2010, found 30 quid in there randomly also haha, and searched around and found H+L were a good alternative

    There were dealers that were cheaper but would rather go with a respected name, and no quartely fee is the best for longer term/portfolio building

    Exactly my reason for going with them too. Also if you fancy a bit of spread betting/CFDs it is so easy to set up an account using IG Index through HL
