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

    • I think his partnership with Bitget is actually a success considering considering he also won 2 ballon d'or  and Bitget has continuously grown I the process. I feel more 20 million registered users in 5 years since inception is unprecedented. 
    • That's a wise call and it's important to also confirm that the exchange of your chosen should be in compliance and perhaps licensed in your country. 
    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
