DFB expiry for spreadbetting


Recommended Posts

I understand that DFBs will expire on 1 April 2016 for positions opened before 29 August 2015.

So, what would happen to those DFBs when they expire on 1 April 2016?

 

Would there be a rollover, and a new DFB will be opened?

And, would there be a charge/cost/spread to carry out the rollover?

Hi Jack. As you said correctly, any DFBs opened prior to 29 August 2015 are due to expire on 1 April 2016. When they expire the positions will be closed and won't be affected by any automatic rollover instructions you may have set up on your account. Therefore, if you'd like the positions to be rolled over into a new DFB you would need to call us to speak to a dealer who can manually roll over your positions. This will be done with no additional charges, so your position(s) will simply be closed and reopened at the same price. The new DFBs will have an expiry of 6 April 2029.

My positions on seemed to have been automatically closed With "DFB" I think. Can you explain why as I thought there was no expirery date for FTSE100 and can you roll these positions forward and have them reopened at the new DFB which expires 2029?

    • Thanks for your reply, I find dukas copy is great for forex, but the Wall Street index is proprietary to IG so the equivalent Dukas index is not close enough for my needs sadly. I have a node JS system receiving the feed from IG and am using Python for the rest API, I really need the tick data though, I was hoping some kind soul had recorded it for a few years and wouldn't mind sharing  
    • Hi, I normally download data from this free service. https://www.dukascopy.com/plugins/fxMarketWatch/?historical_data If you are familiar with any coding language you can request data from the IG API. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=552 The smaller time frame you can get from there is (minute).
    • hi  fully agree to this senario of today . I had good respect for IG.but not anymore after this. they answered the phone after 30 minutes and I lost nearly ONE hour of Trading . I am definately going to OPEN another account  with another Broker and Split the Business between two. IG makes hell of Money from my account . The Management might wake up when revenue goes down . Loyalty to just One broker is not a good idea, If IG breaks down I can straight away deal with other broker . I am sure they are not going to compensate all the customers for todays breakdown .
