Question

Guest london

make sure you know what u are getting into 

 

this is not an exchange

 

this is  a company making profits  on  spreads and funding

 

everything is designed to help them not you 

 

you will be regularly stopped out at weird hours on questionable market "prices"

 

much better to be used for intraday stuff than as an investment tool 

 

caveat emptor

Hi - Like you said it's really important that all new clients know exactly what they are trading, how markets are priced, and what account type they are signing up for. To clarify...

 

If you are trading on a share dealing account you will be trading directly in the market and there will always be a trade printed in that specific underlying exchange which reflects the exact trade that you have done.

 

If you trade shares via CFD DMA then the same thing applies as you are trading directly in the market. 

If you trade CFD FX Direct then you are dealing directly in the FX market. 

 

If you trade other CFD products or spread betting then all these prices will be derived from the underlying market. This is because you are trading a leveraged derivatives product which have their own unique advantages. Spread betting is generally capital gains tax free for example. You can see how specific markets are priced and how the markets work on our website and help and support portal. 

 

If you ever want to know more about a market before you trade it please research and get in contract first. If you ever don't know how a market is priced and would like to go through it one-on-one, please ask in IG Community or give us a call. If you ever want to query a trade, a filled order, a stop or limit, or anything on your account please give us a call as soon as possible. The dealer will be able to talk you through everything and provide evidence to show you how the trade was executed in the underlying market. 

 

We are a fully regulated, UK listed market leader, so please get in touch if you don't understand something or would like more information.

Hi all,

Does a stock having dividend will impact for a CFD trade?

If yes, may I know how?

Good day!

hi - if you are long a set number of shares via a CFD then you will receive a cash deposit for the appropriate dividend on the Ex date. If you are short then you will pay the required div and be debited from your account.

    • Gold, Brent crude and natural gas at risk on Chinese concerns Gold, Brent crude, and natural gas at risk of losing ground as concerns over Chinese demand grow. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 28 November 2022  Gold attempting to rise once more after latest pullback Gold has been turning higher since finding support on the key $1729 support level last week. That level represents the prior breakout signal which formed a double bottom formation earlier this month. However, while we have seen the price of gold moving higher as markets regain lost ground, the worry is that we will be reliant on further risk-on sentiment to drive this market higher. The effects of the extended Chinese lockdowns could bring potential weakness for stocks, thus hurting gold. However, quite whether the weekend protests lead to more draconian measures or see the government soften their stance remains to be seen. For gold, keep an eye out for whether we see price break up through $1786 or back below that $1729 as a signal of where we go from here. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude breaks support as demand concerns grow Brent crude is similarly under the microscope today, with Chinese lockdowns bringing demand concerns following a period of optimism over previous reopening plans. The loosening of contact and travel restrictions has been largely cast aside in the face of rising cases and apparent expansions of quarantine facilities. The break back below $82.65 has subsequently taken price back into the wider 76.4% Fibonacci support level at $81.26. That does highlight the existence of the wider downtrend in play for this market. Keep an eye out for whether price rebounds or breaks back below that support level as a signal or sentiment for the period ahead. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas reversing back towards trendline support Natural gas has been heading lower since Wednesday’s peak of $8.00, with price starting to give back some of the gains evident in the first half of last week. The ascending trendline support evident down below does provide a potential target for the bears, with the recent recovery phase looking likely to continue before long. As such, the short-term picture points towards further downside, with the bulls likely to come back into play from trendline support. A break back below the recent swing-low of $5.898 would be required to negate the bullish phase playing out over the course of the past month. Source: ProRealTime
    • FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 drop back in early trading Indices are watching China nervously, as news of the demonstrations against Covid restrictions hits risk appetite. Source: Bloomberg      Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 28 November 2022  FTSE 100 remains close to 7500 The index has slipped back in early trading, but it remains within easy distance of 7500. After the gains from the October low, some weakness towards the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 7317 would not be surprising, but a move below the 200-day might signal that the bounce will be unwound further. A reversal above 7500 would see the price push on above the September high, and this would bring the 7570 zone into play, the highs from early August. Source: ProRealTime DAX drops back on China worries Some early losses have seen the index drop back from its highs of last week, but the overall bounce is intact. Recent weakness earlier in November found support around 14,130, so a move below this would indicate the potential for some more weakness down towards the 200-day SMA (13,542). Above last week’s highs of 14,575, the next major level to watch is the early June high around 14,660, and then towards 14,875, last seen in early April. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 edges lower Last week saw the index reach the 200-day SMA for the first time since mid-August. However early trading has seen the price drop back, which might see a test of the 100-day SMA (3921). It would take a move below 3800 to suggest that the downward move of the year so far has reasserted itself. A rally above 4042 and the 200-day SMA would then put the September highs at 4155 into view, followed by the August highs at 4325. Source: ProRealTime
