Daily FX Interest?


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I am new around here and still getting accustomed to the platform.

 

I have just incurred a daily FX interest charge for 3 days EUR/GPB for £160.00. 

 

What on earth is this charge for?

 

Any information on this is much appreciated.

 

Thanks to all.

 

P.S: Just got another charge for £388.22 for 3 day interest EUR/USD!!! What on earth? from where I'm standing IG are profiting from me more than I am making on my trades. I must be missing something surely!!!

Hi , please be advised that any positions on our Spot FX markets will be subject to overnight funding using the relevant TomNext bid/ask prices, plus IG's annual administration charge of 0.8%. All your open FX positions are automatically rolled over to the next settlement date so as to avoid physical delivery of the currencies in question, hence why you'll see interest charges on your account.

This is calculated as Bet size * Relevant TomNext, irrespective of the prices you buy and sell at. The TomNext rate is a tradeable rate in its own right and acts as an interest rate differential between the two currencies you’re trading, and hence can change day on day.

 

Since TomNext operates on a T+2 basis, settlement only takes place two business days after the trade date. Therefore a three-day interest charge will be applied on your positions if you held a position through Wednesday. This is because the delivery date would change from Friday to Monday, which is why the rollover on Wednesday requires three days' worth of interest and not just one day.

    • Imagine a world where tokens are not just static assets but dynamic entities with executable scripts, thanks to ERC-5169 and TokenScript brought to life by the ingenious minds at Smart Layer. These technologies empower tokens to carry out intricate logic and front-end interactions, opening doors to endless possibilities. Trusted by over 1200 developers and 30 major brands, Smart Layer isn't just a concept; it's a proven solution embraced by industry leaders for its ability to tackle integration, privacy, and trust head-on. It's more than just a suite of technologies; it's a catalyst for the tokenized web revolution. At its core, Smart Layer introduces a paradigm shift, ushering in a trustless environment where token logic reigns supreme. Smart Tokens, the building blocks of this new era, encapsulate business logic in a blockchain-based format, enabling seamless interactions across systems and tokens. Tokenization becomes the linchpin of this transformative journey, as goods, services, and digital rights morph into programmable tokens. This not only streamlines integration but also fosters frictionless markets and empowers users in the digital realm.  As we look ahead to the next generation of the web, Smart Layer stands tall as the integration bus, connecting disparate systems and enabling limitless possibilities. It's not just about decentralized execution; it's about scalability, security, and a decentralized future where interactions are complex yet seamless. In this narrative of innovation, the Smart Layer isn't just a piece of the puzzle; it's the cornerstone of the Internet's future, a programmable service network facilitating decentralized interactions and shaping the digital landscape for generations to come. Am completely immersed with the ideology that this amazing innovation will reign supreme in this evolving industry and the tokens holders will have every reason to celebrate in the nearest future. Do you guys share the same sentiment or you think it's another over hyped project.
    • Blockchain technology has proven effective in various sectors where its use has been employed, and now businesses want to utilize its intelligence to raise user experiences and productivity. Sadly though, two major hurdles stand in their way: complex integrations, and data sharing regulations. Where tokenization promises to proffer solutions, scale and functionality limitations have halted its breakthrough; enter Smart Layer. Smart Layer promises us a new way to deliver business services that will unlock the next era of digital experiences. While current token functionality is limited by smart contracts, Smart Layer new token standard (EIP-5169) enables tokens to become Smart, and go beyond assets to deliver composable business services, thereby resolving the issue of extending token functionality. Through Smart Layer model, Web2 businesses are bound to build seamless user experiences by delivering more portable and composable services through tokenization, evading the need to build complex integrations with multiple chains. Smart Layer simply captures value with every integration and issued token, as businesses easily tokenize their experiences and services, and paves the way for seamless transition of businesses from web2 to web3. Smart Layer runs as a token-incentivised network of service nodes powered by Smart Layer token ($SLN), a token that has gained global attention thanks to its vast utilities and huge airdrop. Leading exchanges such as Bitget has also indicated interest in listing $SLN when the liquidity threshold is met. Your thoughts on this exciting project?
    • As blockchain technology and cryptocurrency adoption continues to surge, a lot of newbies seems to get discouraged due to the complexities involved in navigating through this evolving industry hence the reason why devs are constantly looking for ways to bring innovation that could ease the understandings of people embracing this industry. Thankfully IQ came through with a brilliant innovation where blockchain and cryptocurrency knowledge thrive. There, you'll find a wealth of wikis covering everything you need to know about the crypto world. It's not just an encyclopedia; it's a tool to empower you and shape the future of blockchain. Interestingly they don't rely solely on human effort. Their partnership with artificial intelligence, including OpenAI's GPT-4, helps scale content and make it more accessible. They're all about sharing knowledge in an easy, intuitive way. At the heart of their ecosystem is IQ.wiki, a hub for the curious, the seekers, and the scholars of blockchain. It's not just a source of information; it's a community united in the quest for understanding and growth. And powering it all is the IQ token, a symbol of commitment to a smarter future. More than just a cryptocurrency, it bridges the gap between artificial intelligence and blockchain, driving towards decentralization and empowerment. With a staggering 1173% up from the previous ATL, the tokens continues to get attention of both traders and investors alike and with many more CEXs now listing it on their platform, I think this AI token could follow the pattern of other top AI projects like TAO and AGIX or even surpass them.
