Hi @ben_fu

Thanks for the question

You simply need to install MT4 again in a different location. Please see the below steps:

  1. Download MT4 setup file from the following link and run it: http://www.ig.com/content/dam/publicsites/igcom/mt4/ig4setup.exe
  2. Tick to agree with terms > Settings:
  3. Browse > Expand Desktop* > Make New Folder and name e.g. 'IG MT4 2' > OK > Rename Program group e.g. 'IG MetaTrader 4 Terminal 2' > Next:
  4. Finish:

I have added some screenshots below which should help.

All the best

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year.

    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released. IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph FSTA, looks at the chart of JP Morgan (JPM) as an opener. Axel also examines a trade around US inflation and chooses to analyse the S&P 500.
