# Costs of a spread bet

## Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been routed through to the IG platform via the Robbie Burns Spread Betting book.

In his book he says the cost of a spread bet left overnight for 3 nights using DRP with IG is 'pennies' . However when I've looked at the costs per spread example on the IG website I have found the following:

Admittedly Robbie's book was written in 2019, but have the costs of spread betting really gone up by that much?

Cheers

Hi @Hampshire321,

The above example is for 3 nights.

Now the SONIA rate is 1.72% roughly.

It will depend on the amount per point you are holding and closing price.

Thank you - Arvin

I was looking at taking a £2 per point spread bet on BP this morning where the opening price was 425.5p with a take profit at 440.5p. The closing price today was 426.5p

In this instance please how much would it cost me per night to leave the spread bet open?

Many thanks

Hi,

Thanks

H123

Thanks for reaching out,

The formula for overnight funding on shares is as follows:

Bet size x price x (country's interest benchmark +/- IG admin charge) / 365

Using your example above:  2 x 426.5 x (2.5% + 1.7231%) /365 = GBP 0.09 per night

All the best,

Anda

Hi @AndaIG

• Bitcoin: Anticipated target lies within the 58-60 range before an impending correction. The upward trajectory is displaying signs of softening, prompting short-term traders to elevate their stop-loss levels. Bond Yields: The 10-year yields are poised to conclude wave v) of C of (B). This development is pivotal as it will uphold the strength of the Dollar DXY. Consequently, positions in gold or silver should be refrained from until yields and the Dollar reach their peaks. China's Influence: An intriguing facet of the market landscape revolves around China. I've been meticulously observing a substantial Elliott Wave Triangle pattern dating back to 2008, which now seems to have reached its culmination. This event is forecasted to bolster base metal prices, particularly once the Dollar and yields reach their zeniths. Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension. Natural Gas: The recent uptick in natural gas prices is construed as a corrective rally, indicative of an impending shorting opportunity in the near future.
