Unrecognised charges


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am new to IG, after a couple of weeks to observe the market on IG, i started my first trades today. Things were going fine, until I figured out something went wrong with the total profit/loss after trades.

to be in detail, I’ve found out that some how i got charged $117.29 for my $390.98 loss ( it’s on guarantee stop and i dont think it will cost me 1/3 of the amount). Moreover, right after that i got a gain of $77.45 and then they charge me $93.88 (this one is guarantee stop as well).

please note that those charge wont be showed in “closed trade tabs”, they’re showed in the “history -> transaction”

if anyone could, please explain to me about this issues as i feel like they 100% scam all of our money no matter what. Please put down your ideas, thanks.

Hey @Ivan1602

If something is converted it's simply the profit/ loss converted at the current exchange rate. 

The A$117 CRPREM charge does seem high. When we have a guaranteed stop charge we will not change it. Say you traded and the CR premium was 2pts it would be the size x contract size x 2pts. If your position is open and the CR premium changes to 40pts and your stop is triggered we will only charge you the 2 pts premium as that's what you agreed to pay when the position was opened. 

I would advise reaching out to our helpdesk who can look into the account and advise you further on that charge. 

All the best

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
