JonJaa

Question

Please confirm/ correct my understanding that follows of the quoted swap bid (swap offer) for CFDs for each forex market: this is the overnight fee in the quote currency if I am long (short) respectively on 1 standard lot of 100,000 units? Also I understand that these figures exclude the IG overnight admin fee? Thanks

Hi @JonJaa,

The daily estimated overnight funding rates for forex (tom-next rate plus our admin fee) and commodities (basis adjustment plus our admin fee) can be viewed in our platform. We call them swap rates.

For short positions we’ll apply the ‘swap bid’ rate, and for long positions we’ll apply the ‘swap offer’ rate.

You can find more details here.

All the best - Arvin

Hi @JonJaa,

After asking IT, unfortunately it seems that it is not possible to access historical swap rates data.

I will raise this point as a feedback to the relevant team to be reviewed.

Thanks very much once again for the follow up @ArvinIG!

Hi Arvin. Thanks very much for your prompt and clear explanation.

Are the historical swap rates perhaps available somewhere, i.e. going back a few years?

Thanks again

Jon

    • With BTC making its exponential highs, a couple new projects are springing up incredibly fast. The narratives popping up right now are gaming and AI projects. Through my research, I found a new gaming project with some good gaming use cases and tokenomics. The project is, flappyMoonbird. It is a web3 game metaverse with a Player vs Player based on a bird themed scope. At this moment, the project’s team has announced 3 games; Racing bird, AI birdnopoly and FlappymoonBird inclusive, these have gameplay and demo released. The game has also incorporated Play2Earn to its framework, while playing users are given latitude to play games casually to earn mystery boxes, and its native $FMB tokens and other prizes. After reading exhaustively about this project, I was on the lookout for where to buy it from. Reliable platforms like bitget have expressed intent to list it through its deposit to list activity. Consequently, by depositing some amount of it ($FMB) on the CEX, the platform will list the token and this will undoubtedly provide the project with further exposure just the same way it has done for some of its popular projects. From my personal experience, projects that are often incubated by the CEX in this manner turnout to perform exceedingly well. Taking a cue from projects like $CSIX and $GRIMACE that went through same procedure, after they got listed, the projects performed quite well and are still performing with very good price action thus far.  On a safer note, if the project doesn’t scale through the listing procedure, all funds can be withdrawn seamlessly. The project looks quite promising and I think with the platforms concerted efforts, it will get listed along with good price action.
