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:

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

    • As Andrew Bailey and co gear up for their next BoE decision, will it be enough to drive the pound higher against the dollar, or could recession worries return? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Pound sterling Bank GBP/USD Central bank United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What do markets expect from the Bank of England meeting? This Thursday sees the latest Bank of England (BoE) decision. Markets expect the bank to raise UK rates by 50 basis points (bps), a similar amount to the ECB. What is the context? In an interesting reversion to early 2022, when the BoE seemed to lead the way in hawkishness, this week’s crop of central bank meetings points to a Fed rate increase of just 25bps, while Threadneedle Street pushes on with another 50bps hike, as will the European Central Bank. As with most central bank meetings these days, it is the comments around the decision and the voting pattern that will be more important. A more hawkish caucus might emerge, based on the improved (or at least, less bad) economic outlook that has appeared of late. But the outlook for the second half of the year remains gloomy, at best. Markets continue to expect at least one 25bps rate cut by the end of the year, but the bank will not want to give too much credit to this argument, since it is aware that inflation remains solidly above forecasts. GBP/USD outlook Momentum in GBP/USD has stalled at the December highs of $1.24, with little sign that the price wishes to push on ahead of the BoE meeting. Clearly a more hawkish BoE would be needed, but one that is not too hawkish that it then makes markets fret about the impact on the already-tough UK economic outlook. It will be a tough balance to strike, and if markets start to worry about a deeper UK recession, then we could see GPB/USD push back towards $1.20 and the 200-day SMA. Source: ProRealTime
