If you trade shares through Halifax and are planning on adding to your stock portfolio you may be pleased to know that Halifax share dealing have a cheap reduced commission charge on Tuesday 16th June for a limited time.
The Halifax share dealing reduced commission charge is £3.95 per trade and runs from 12 midday to 2pm. The offer also applies to international trades and you can buy/sell international shares for £3.95 from 8am to 9pm. You do still have to pay stamp duty.
I myself plan to avail of the offer and will be buying some Legal and General shares. The reduced commission charge can keep the average price of the stock down which is particularly useful to traders. I am aiming to buy around 100 Legal and General shares which will get me around £11 a year in dividends at the current dividend payout level.
