Display Profit/loss in Base Currency


Recommended Posts

I just changed over from Oanda, so I am still trying to get used to the IG Platform. My base currency is EUR and I trade most in FX. When I go to place a trade for example, USD/CAD, it does not let me see what I am risking in EUR (only in CAD,GBP or USD) , is there a way to change this as I don't want to be converting on occasions to see what I am risking in EUR. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you're trading FX you must be on a leveraged account (spread betting/ CFD) and the answer is yes you can get your account base currency changed. 

If you email us at helpdesk.uk@ig.com and request for the base currency to be changed we will be able to assist you. 

All the best
