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

    • Look Ahead to 09/02/23: US Initial jobless claims; AZN, ULVR, LYFT earnings Hot on the heels of surprisingly strong US jobs numbers, we get initial jobless claims data. AstraZeneca’s (AZN) pipeline will be in focus. Plus, Unilever (ULVR) Credit Suisse (CSGN) and Lyft (LYFT) also report.

    • Since USD/JPY has given a technical sell signal, we would like to go short the cross at ¥130.85 with a downside target at ¥126.50 and a stop-loss just above Monday’s high at ¥132.95.
