Over night fee's


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Could someone kindly explain for me,

I open a position for spot gold at price 1740 @ £10 pp BUY. No stops or limits set.

at 20:59 I log out of the platform at the position is 1720, a loss of 20 points.

what charges will I pay ?

Same scenario as above but this time a SELL 20 points in profit

Although I have been trading fro 4 years I have never left a position open over night or over a weekend.

Thank you in advance

Hi, it’s relatively simple to work out. You need to look at the KID document for the instrument you’re trading.. think it’s on the platform when you click on the ticker and then under market info, at the top.

They work it out based at 10pm everyday and it’s based on the notional exposure. So whether you’re in profit or at a loss is irrelevant.. it would just be based on £10 x 1720 = £17200 notional. 

You get charged LIBOR plus a margin (usually about 2-3% per annum) and it depends on what the instrument is as to what the reference interest rate is.

Tbh you could go to the effort of working it all out but I would say just do it and you’ll see how much it is, it’s not a material amount for one night and that will give you the answer. I trade FTSE and it costs you about half a point, so if you’re £10 a point the cost would be around a fiver. It would probably be about a quarter of that for yours given gold is (1700/6800) around a quarter the value of FTSE, so I’d guess at somewhere between £1 and £1.50 a night without going to the trouble of finding out which interest rates they use for it.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
