[Aus] CFD reduced commission promotion?

Recommended Posts



On 29 Nov 2016 I received a promotional email from IG stating that CFD commissions will be reduced by 50% until 28 February 2017.


E.g. for US shares the commission is usually $0.02/share (minimum $15 USD).

Therefore the 50% off promotional rates are reduced to $0.01/share (minimum $7.50 USD). These rates are all explicitly stated in a table within the email.


However when I checked my last four CFD trades, I have been charged the regular full rate of $0.02/share, i.e. charged about $75 USD in total instead of $37.50.

When I inquired with the Australian IG help desk they said that I have been charged the correct commission and did not know of this promotion in question.


This is the T&Cs for anyone wondering:



Any other Australian traders been burned with this?

Hi , thanks for the post and sorry to hear there may have been a mix-up here.



It looks like you have received a commission correction/refund on your account as of yesterday (28th) - please could you let us know if there are any outstanding issues?

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
