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

    • Just updated settings for currency conversion from instant to manual. I understand, from now on, I pay commission of 2 cents per share with a minimum charge of $10 on US stocks while on instant it was $0. But, the real question is: - how do i transfer my AUD in my bank to USD on IG. Is bank transfer option (With the acct/swift code from IG) the only option? - what happens when US stock gives divided? does it get transferred to AUD or will it remain somewhere (dont know where) on IG in USD itself?  - what happens when I sell USD stocks? same as above, where do i manually transfer it back to AUD?   Cheers
    • There has been a significant uptick in activity from institutional investors, or "whales," in the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE). Recent data shows the value of large transactions has almost quadrupled in the past day. According to statistics from IntoTheBlock, transactions over $100,000 have soared in value over the last 24 hours, jumping from $1.53 billion to nearly $3.01 billion. Simultaneously, the amount of DOGE moved by these whales increased from 9.74 billion to 17.97 billion, indicating a substantial rise in investor activity within the Dogecoin ecosystem. This dramatic increase in whale transactions coincides with growing speculation within the crypto community about the possibility of a Dogecoin ETF being approved. Excitement surrounding the prospect of an Ethereum ETF has led to speculation that DOGE might be the next cryptocurrency to get its own ETF. Amid this speculation, a prominent crypto enthusiast named Vee posted on X, suggesting that Dogecoin would be perfect for an ETF due to its broad acceptance and non-security status. In a post highlighting the potential pros and cons, Vee underscored the double-edged nature of traditional financial institutions' interest in Dogecoin. Billy Markus, one of the coin's co-creators, humorously remarked that a Dogecoin ETF would be "amusing," a sentiment that fits DOGE's playful origins but doesn't detract from the serious investment opportunities current market trends present. Dogecoin value has risen by 11.2% over the last week, reflecting the overall upward trend in the cryptocurrency market. Although DOGE has seen a slight 0.7% increase in the last day, it is now trading at $0.168.
