CFD Commission - Unbelievably HIGH


Recommended Posts

Considering closing my account due to CFD trading costs and no customer service.

Yesterday did a CFD on $CTRM - 300 shares $0.92 - When I closed my position @ $0.99 I was charged £95.14 so only came out with £58 profit!!!

IG don't answer the phone, the support chat are unable to explain the charge, emails are ignored

Absolute joke

Thanks for your post. 

With our Spread betting account all markets incorporate the cost into the spread so when you close your position you don't have any commission fees. With our CFD account however we do have commission each side for shares which you can find by following the link below: 

https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-igs-shares-cfd-product-details

If you're a UK client you can have exposure to the same shares but you will not be charged commission. If this is something you might be interested in reach out to us. If you don't want to call us you can email us with the information about what happened and then ask us to break down the costs on the spread betting account to see if it's something you want to consider. 

 

But with CFD you have to be aware of the commission before trading so you've included the cost when thinking of your desired profit. 

All the best

Hi Charlotte, I have already emailed support (yesterday morning).  I am based in UK and have read the pdf with charges but I cannot see how you get £97.  

 

How do I avoid the commission charges?

I have phoned continually for 2 days now, no answer

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
