I have only checked the demo-account which does not return margin for fully hedged positions, but understand this is the case with a Live Account. 

Hi there, thank you for contacting us. Are you trading on your ZAR demo account? If you open the same size under the same market, it should return a portion of your margin as you are hedged. 

Please end a screenshot, we will escalate further. All the best, OfentseIG

Hello again, so there is no way to trade US indices with an account that has margin offset?


Hi @kifliki2

Thank you for reaching out. We only offer SA40 on domestic accounts that have margin offset. Unfortunately the IG International account does not have margin offset as it is under ESMA regulation. 

All the best, O.D

Hi @kifliki2

That is correct. 

Different regions have different products offered due to their account specific regulations. 

However, IG Europe is under ESMA and if the client is a retail client and not Pro, the client would not have margin offset when trading US Indices. IG Australia accounts are Non-ESMA so would have margin offset to trade US indices. These markets are offered in their region. Thanks, OfentseIG
