iDealing is a no-frills low-cost online stockbroker. One of its main selling points is that it’s one of very few UK retail stockbrokers to offer Direct Market Access to the London Stock Exchange (the other main ones are Interactive Brokers, Saxo Markets and more recently IG).
The firm also offers commission-free trading for Euronext Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris, passing on only the per-trade charges levied directly by the exchange. It will also deal in other CREST-eligible foreign stocks – ie, those can clear and settle through the UK securities depository – for additional European markets and the US, traded through UK market makers. Costs are commendably low compared with many UK peers, especially once FX charges are taken into account.
Be aware that iDealing charges a £60 fee to close or transfer out an account. This kind of closure fee is relatively standard among ISA providers, but not common for regular trading accounts.
