Fee in the first month?

Recommended Posts


I have opened an account with IG today with the primary aim to trade US shares.

The fee structure says that for 3+ trades in the previous month, all transactions in the current month shall be free. Can you explain this a bit better?

1. In the first month, all the shares I trade, shall be charged for? Irrespective of the number. Lets say I buy shares of 10 different companies. So 10x$15 = $150. So, only in the second month do I get free from the charges?

2. The $0 charge in the shares traded in the second month (assuming 10 shares traded in month 1) - how is this done? $15 charged and then returned back. Or not charged in the first place itself?

    • 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.
