Clarity on Commodities Interest


eastside

Question

I have both long and short positions in Oil and everyday i get only a one line in my IG statement "Daily Commodities Interest for 1 day - US crude". I understand it changes from day to day. Could I have some clarity within the IG statement on what was the interest rate charged separately for long and short positions for each day please?

Thanks

Hi @eastside

Thanks for reaching out, 

If you add the the market to a watchlist, then add it to your workspace you will be able to view the swap bid / offer for each day. Unfortunately the statements are automated and are not set up to show the rate at this point. Should you want more clarity on overnight funding please see the following link:

All the best,

    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at EUR/USD.          
    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released. IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph FSTA, looks at the chart of JP Morgan (JPM) as an opener. Axel also examines a trade around US inflation and chooses to analyse the S&P 500.          
    • SEPTEMBER JOBS REPORT KEY POINTS: The September jobs report showed that the U.S. economy added 263,000 workers last month versus expectations of a gain of 250,000 payrolls. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 3.5%, two-tenths of a percent below forecasts Average hourly earnings rose 0.3% on a monthly basis and 5.0% compared to a year ago, matching estimates The resilient labor market is likely to keep the Fed on a hawkish path     MARKET REACTION TO NFP REPORT Immediately following the release of the September jobs report, the U.S. dollar, as measured by the DXY index, spiked higher, bolstered by a solid jump in U.S. Treasury yields. Meanwhile, S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures plunged into negative territory, falling more than 1.5% at the time of writing. Strong labor market data is likely to keep the Fed on the hawkish path, prompting policymakers to deliver additional interest rate hikes and preventing them from pivoting prematurely toward a dovish posture. This scenario should favor the U.S. dollar, but could create strong headwinds for equities.   Oct 7, 2022 | DailyFX Diego Colman, Strategist
