Is it possible to use the equity in your shares trading account for the margin in your CFD MT4 account?

Hi @Brisgo,

Using the shares you own for the margin of a CFD is referred as Collateral.

You can find information on collateral here.

This feature in not available to retail clients but only to Pro clients.

If you are a Pro client, you can link your CFD account to your share trading account from within the web-based platform.

Log in to My IG > Live accounts > Set up collateral

Once linked, you can use a percentage of the value of your shareholdings as collateral to cover the margin on your CFDs. How much depends on the make-up of your portfolio.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin
