zangdook I think you'll find that most of the major online players these days tend to charge flat rates per trade around the 10 quid mark irrespective of size and potentially even less if you trade frequently. I wouldn't like to make specific recommendations as there'll always be someone out there who will have had a nightmare experience with such and such, but personally have always had good experience with TDW (£12.50 max per trade), Stocktrade (if you prefer a CREST sponsored account) and HSBC (£10 max). Doubtless others can comment on the likes of E-Trade, Fastrade, Barclays, etc. Regards.

I heard a rumour that Peter Hargreaves had given an interview to The Times online, but for the life of me I can't find any more details. Has anyone seen this?

Sgt B Would you care to recommend some? Usually people only mention their brokers to complain about them, so a recommendation would be helpful. HL charge £10 per stock to transfer out, so it would be a long slow process for me to transfer, as I'm spread pretty thin, but I may have to do it. They seem much more geared to the hands-off fund-buying investor; I think they're pretty good at that, but for the share-buyer/trader they're lacking in many ways, and, as you say, expensive.

Sorry to butt in, but surely noone in their right mind would use HL as an online stockbroker? :-) There are copious more economical, more reliable and more technologically client friendly online brokers around. As for the company, tend to agree with scburbs, but not surprised it's holding its own while the market continues to rally. I see it as a pretty boring, defensive stock; one which seems like a reliable range-trader with a decent dividend. My major concern would be whether HL's longer-term growth prospects can continue to justify it's P/E premium. Neutral. P.S. Gerry321 - ffs, do one.

Zangdook, I think HL must be trying to keep investor cash balances up as this seems to be what they make all their money on!!

Perhaps instead of building a football stadium Mr Lansdown should spend some of his millions buying a decent computer system that can handle busy trading days. Every time the market moves forward, HL's system goes down.

Hargreaves Lansdown need to get their website sorted out. It's down again today, can't see holdings, can't deal.

Gerry321, Don't worry you and the government have scared him off. More worried about his personal tax position than running his businesses? http://www.thisisbristol.co.uk/business/Bristol-s-richest-man-thinking-moving-Isle-Man-avoid-50p-tax-rate/article-937679-detail/article.html

Not sure what happened the May 2007 money. A lot of selling all round from the Directors. Company now at a substantial premium to the float price (160p) at a time when nearly every other share price is substantially down (can't be many up on May 2007, particularly not in this space). Now supposedly worth over £1bn. "Mr Lansdown is a co-founder of the financial advisory business with Peter Hargreaves. The two pocketed £150m between them in the flotation of the business in May 2007, which also created about 20 millionaires among their 650 employees." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/5173380/bLansdown-share-bsale-nets-47m-to-help-Bristol-City-club-towards-stadium-goal.html

Interesting that he chose to sell 23m shares. That is a very large sale. Shows there is good demand, but not a great indicator in that Directors' confidence Bristol City or no Bristol City.

Sticking with BARC and LLOY for the time being. Luckily got into BARC around 1.06 and LLOY in the 50s somewhere. It has to end sometime soon I'm sure but think the Yanks may carry us up a bit.

BARC is doing you proud! (if you got in at the right time) I made a great profit on BARC, but closed far far too soon. I am out of LLOY's today as it seems to have got ahead of itself a little bit given the APS costs/exposures etc.

scburbs if it is madness hopefully BARC and LLOY will compensate :)
