CFD account: No longer shows estimated Total Daily Running Costs


DB7

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.

    • SOL is on the move! Keep your eyes peeled as it approaches key resistance at $148.27. Further ceilings await at $148.98 and $151.86. However, a breakthrough could signal a stronger bullish phase.   Support levels stand firm at $141.17, with even stronger foundations at $133.73 and $128.71. These are critical in case of any selling pressure, offering potential buying opportunities on dips.   Feeling bullish? Traders might consider long entries on pullbacks to major support levels, with stop-loss orders placed below $133.73 to manage risk. If SOL struggles, short positions could be in play with targets set at subsequent support levels.
    • In last couple of years, there has been  debate over the top memecoin investment with centre of discussion around DOGE, SHIB, FLOKI, PEPE and a host of others. Personally, I feel comparing any contender to DOGE feels akin to comparing altcoins to BTC. DOGE, being the pioneer memecoin, boasts an impressive $22 billion market cap, towering over its closest competitor, SHIB, with a $13 billion market cap. Its unique endorsement by Elon Musk further solidifies its position. The fervent backing from its vast online and offline community serves as a blueprint for other memecoins to follow. Thus, it's no surprise that DOGE emerged victorious in a recent Bitget poll, where enthusiasts competed to showcase their community's strength in honor of DOGE DAY 2024. With DOGE predictably clinching the win, ten fortunate participants stand to each receive $300 worth of DOGE through the event's gleam completion. Let's seize this opportunity to bolster our crypto portfolios.
