Question on "WITH" type in statement history


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I just joined IG and I created a demo account to try things out. I bought Tesla stocks and sold it at a loss. But in my statement history, there are 2 statements which has a type "WITH". I bought just 1 stock of tesla and was supposed to incur a loss of $3.23. But these 2 "WITH" statements deducted $21.22 both at a total of $42.44 total. I couldn't find any topic with this WITH type hence I created a new topic for this! I was wondering if this was because I wasn't using USD currency and it was converted from my currency?

Hi @Shermz,

Thank you for your post. 
The 21.22$ is the commission while the 3.23$ is the conversation back to your base currency.
The system will automatically convert back to your base currency. You can open a CFD account and change the base currency and have a USD account for example, in this case you won't incur conversion fee unless you are depositing and withdrawing in another currency than USD.

Hi! Could you explain how does the commission work? Doesn't seem to make sense to me on how I lost $3 but the commission is more then 10x the amount I lost. Thanks!

Hi @Shermz,

Your loss on the deal it self is not reflecting on Ledger but directly on your balance.

The commission is deducted per side, meaning if you buy and sell that equals to two sides. Hence the $21.22 x 2 roughly. Then the conversion as mentioned would be deducted twice, once from account currency to USD and once for USD back to account currency.
Your P/L is not reflecting on the Ledger.

I hope that it helps - Arvin

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
