Spreads SA40 Cash

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.

    • Is it possible to trade the MERVAL index on IG?
    • New data from Canada shows that lockdowns aren't so bad after all, well for some of us anyway. So long as they can keep finding replacement drivers to deliver my stuff everything is fine.    
    • I don't actually know too much about the great reset plan and have never looked into it closely but those that have (Prince Charles, Justin Trudeau etc) all remark on what an opportunity Covid-19 is to get the plan moving so I remain suspicious. The covid numbers are unreliable and problematic, if you go into hospital having had a heart attack you will be tested for covid with the PCR test which is know to give a very high number of false positives. If you test positive you go on the covid cases list and the covid admissions list and if you die from the heart attack you will go on the covid deaths list but it may well be you never actually had covid at all. No matter how you count it though the main point is that if there really was a deadly pandemic sweeping the land then total deaths this year would be way up on the average and they just aren't. I have posted data from the UK, Sweden, Ireland and now the US and all show the same thing, the total number of deaths for this year is normal. Also, normal winter pressures mean hospitals always fill up at this time of year, data I've seen so far for this year is not out of the ordinary but no doubt MSM are shouting CASES!!! Best of luck to you too.
