Display in USD?

Question

Hey,

 

I'm in Australia and I'm looking at getting the platform to display charts etc in USD to match up with triggers I have signed up to receive. Is it possible to have the platform display in USD?

 

Regards,

 

Stevencr00k.

Hi , thanks for the post and welcome!

 

Which market charts are you looking at exactly?  You can change the base currency of your trading account to be USD, but not how the underlying market is priced.  So for example, if you are looking at the ASX, this will always be quoted in AUD, but currency pairs will be quoted in the second named currency (eg AUD/USD is quoted in USD).

 

If you can specify what you are looking to do then we can see if we can help!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi , thanks for your post.

 

If you'd like to change the base currency of your account, you'll just need to contact our helpdesk.  They'll confirm you don't have any open positions and that if you have a balance, you're happy for it to be converted at the spot rate plus 0.3%.

 

Thank you,

 

Hannah

Hi  - please send an email request from your registered email address to helpdesk@ig.com with the following info

 

Name

Date of birth

Address

Account (specifically - e.g. if you hold 2 CFD accounts let us know which one)

Base currency change from >> to

 

We should then be able to get that sorted pretty quick.

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
