Question

Why is IGMT4 pip values and profit and loss not the same. 

I understand how the calculation is made but not why.  My understanding of FX trading is that since I do not physically own the assets, I cannot understand why my profit and loss the pip values is not the same as REAL actual profit and loss, for example, pip value of +10, account value of +£7.12 for EURUSD TRADE.

I have tried to change this on new MT4 download by choosing fx gbp in the new setup, but the problem persists. 

This is made worse when I looked at the "fees" involved; 12%-13% on margin/spread or 24%-26% roundtrip.  Converting from sterling to USD is about 30% loss.  Therefore I am penalised by about 50% on each Opened and Closed trade.

Yet IG advertises that no commission and low spreads.

I would be grateful for an answer please before I start Live trading.

    • Having owned QYLD and RYLD a few months ago, but sold just before the June downturn, today i find out that retail investors can nolonger buy most US ETF's because they are not UCITS, my question is, is the loss of being able to buy these ETF's permanent? Kind regards.
