Recommended Posts

When is IG going to reduce the spreads for South African 40 cash as they have done for other markets?

Hi mate. Firstly, I assume you are South African. If you are pleasure to meet you as I do not see many South Africans on the forum.


I do not trade international indices however, if the spreads a lower on those, I hope we can get some of that as well.

Hello , thanks for the post!


We base our spreads on how liquid and volatile a market is, and how easily we can hedge positions and move in and out of the market.  Our indices dealers have therefore taken this into account to determine the minimum spread on the South Africa 40 that we currently offer.  If they see a possibility to do so, the spread will be reduced, as it is in our interests to do so too.


Hope that clarifies, but let us know if you have any other queries.

    • My brain isn't working properly any more
    • I would says so, unless you are dealing with short time frames and large sums of money and you are able to be glued to the screen 100% of the time and give it your full attention.
    • So that's a bearish candle, after an up move that's running out of steam (with small read bodies and long legs), falling back down towards established Fibonacci levels, with a MACD crossing from above 0 and RSI below 50     At one point I had the RSI set to 9, and that additionally gives an overbought divergence (price goes higher but RSI doesn't).  This also gives a nice oversold indication when the move down is coming to an end
