Question about overnight fee's


Recommended Posts

Regarding the overnight fee's, IG's website says that any trades past 10pm will incur this additional charge.

 

However, I was wondering what's would stop someone from closing their position at 9.59pm, and then reopening the position at 10.01pm, or is this charge applied to any position open from 10pm until the opening the next day?

Hi, day traders open and close during the day no problem, you keep paying the spread is all,  however if IG considers your repeated 'style' of trading is taking an unfair advantage people have reported you will likely get a polite email telling you to stop it or ------ off.

Maybe when trading forex on a wednesday?

"Most banks across the globe are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, so there is no rollover on these days, but the banks still apply interest on these days. To account for that, the forex market books three days’ worth of rollover interest on Wednesdays. "

Doh! Maybe I should have thought it through a bit more aha.

Not been having much luck instraday atm, so was going to try and take advantage of moves that last multible days, and so was wondering about overnight charges. But like you said, it's proably cheaper than the spread anyway. Cheers

    • Maybe IG have decided that with such exceptional demand, they don't need to worry about long term clients.  The exceptional mob will not be around for the long haul.  As a result of what IG have done, long term clients may not be around for the long haul either.
    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best
