overnight fees


Recommended Posts

I Don't  Know im sick of constantly  been exploited  by these people, i query  the large adjustments  fees the other day on the Australian 200, it was much greater than they published,  i contacted them twice and they failed to respond. Not to mention much wider spreads so they can fleece as much as possible off the newbies during the lockdown

The wider spreads are due to the high volatility, the overnight fees when published are only a guide as the calc needs the close figure so if price changes late it will be wrong.

For the overnight fees the broker makes an admin fee and debits the longs and credits the shorts so there's not much in it for them.

But the only reason to charge more than 1 night is if it's just before the weekend and/or a bank holiday. So for example Yen long holders on Friday night will be charged 5 days because of the weekend and then the 3 day Japan bank holiday starting Monday.

is that forex pairs too when carried over 10 pm weds and obvious  weekend  as ,always paid more than one day when this applies,this was explained too by a IG representative when query  it on another occasion  

For FX that is correct because FX settles T+2 and so Wed incurs 3 days but then you are not charged for the weekend.

is there a particular reason you dont trade forex now. I understand if you dont wish to disclose why 

the reason being that around 2017 overall FX volatility was dropping steadily which meant smaller swings which made things increasingly difficult intraday while indices volatility was increasing so I switched. FX vol has been increasing ok for the last 8 months or so though.

Also indices priced against the national currency are not so back and forth like 2 FX pairs are constantly fighting it out, indices are more singularly directional.

yes, gbpjpy was good though the spread was always quite high, used to be around 4 points min. didn't like chf so much because the SNB could and regularly did step in at any time and turn everything upside down, and of course for for a very long time in 2014 had pegged the chf to the euro and caused the famous black swan event when they suddenly removed it, ended up costing IG 10s of millions when clients couldn't pay up their losses. .

yes i saw that highlighted on youtube [unfortunately ] gb/jpy not bad for short term especially  during issues  around brexit, as high volatility .i find chf pairs are the most quirky the way they move, but they can also be one of the more predictable  around support  and resistance i feel,  but that was obviously  an exception

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
