The cost of shares within my ISA

Hi all, I’m hoping someone can help me.

I’m looking at some of my cost of shares and they don’t make sense, I thought the cost that T212 added to a share was included in the cost to purchase/sell a share. However when I look at a couple of stocks that doesn’t seem to be the case.

For example, abbv

I have 1 share at an average of $91.16, current price of $96.13 But I’m showing to be up only 21p

Realty income, I have 2 shares at an average $57.65, current price $60.55 and I’m showing down 71p.

I’m guessing there is a spread on the buy and sell cost but is there a standard % so it’s easy to work out what my actual cost is?

Thanks in advance


another case of exchange rate fluctuations from the point you bought and now.


See suggestion #24 in this list. You are one who might have benefitted from a warning.

Just so it’s clear ISA/Invest have no costs and the spread you see is what you get.

It’s the CFD account that makes this possible to have free trading.

What you see as mentioned is just because the pound to dollar exchange rate is always fluctuating. So if the £ gets stronger or weaker against the dollar it’ll affect your return even if the bid is the same as the ask you paid

Perfect, thanks for the Help everyone.

I was sure there was no spread in shares in a isa but it’s good to have it confirmed.

there always is a spread naturally from the market but for invest and ISA T212 doesn’t add anything on top.
