CFD account: No longer shows estimated Total Daily Running Costs

Recommended Posts

For a while, whilst trading in my CFD account, IG was showing the estimated total daily running cost before I entered a trade. Whilst it still shows approx opening/closing cost (namely the spread between bid/offer), for the last couple of weeks, I only see nil for total daily running costs. Is anyone else able to see the total estimated running costs?

I found it very helpful, even if only an estimate, as some instruments can have a very high cost of carry each day, which could be enough for me to decide to trade the instrument or not.

If IG Helpdesk could look into this, it would be extremely helpful.

Thank you

Hi @DB7,

Thank you for reaching out. Please make sure you are looking at cash contract instruments, not forwards or futures contracts. You should see an indicative estimated daily cost.

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
