How Order is filled when trading CFD on IG

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have a doubt, when trading equities/options/futures, if a trader places a buy or sell order to a broker, it goes to an exchange and if someone is ready to buy or sell at the that price order gets matched and the order is filled.

What happens when we are trading only CFD, are we trading against the broker, our order is filled by the broker (IG), meaning if I am buying some equity CFD so IG is selling that CFD? If that is the case, can the price be manipulated to kick out the trader ?

Hi, all brokers are market makers to some extent. If you are trading on the Direct Market Access (DMA) platform then you are dealing on the exchange through IG but if using any other platform then IG looks to match those trades inhouse matching shorts to longs. Any excess they hedge on the exchange themselves. 

So IG aren't taking the other side of your trade, they are covered whether you win or lose and they make on the spread from both parties. If they need to hedge they still win because they get a better spread than what they pass on to you.

    • FTSE 100, DAX, and Dow likely to push higher despite overnight pause The FTSE, DAX, and Dow pause overnight, although wider uptrend points towards further upside to come. Source: Bloomberg  Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 27 October 2021 FTSE 100 starts to ease back after latest rise into 19-month highs The FTSE 100 managed to push up through the 7246 resistance level on Tuesday, with the index rising into a 19-month high. However, the index is easing back this morning, with price seemingly moving into another retracement mode. To the downside, an ascending trendline and 7246 support provide near-term hurdles to watch. Ultimately, we would need to see a break below the 7179 to bring about a fresh bearish view. Until then, there is a good chance we see further upside from here. Source: ProRealTime DAX reversing lower from key resistance level The DAX has been stopped in its tracks after a rise back into the 15759-15793 swing-high resistance zone. The fact that we have seen price break back into that zone brings an end to the recent trend of lower highs, signalling the expectations of further upside from here. Quite how deep this retracement goes remains to be seen, but a bullish outlook remains in play unless we see price fall back below the 15398 swing-low. Source: ProRealTime Dow Jones continues to gain ground The Dow has been on the rise of late, with prices seemingly hitting fresh highs on a daily basis. While price has drifted lower overnight, there is likely to be another bout of gains coming into play before long. As such, a bullish outlook holds unless price falls back below the 35443 swing-low established on Thursday. Source: ProRealTime
