Hi,

When is SDRT Charged?

After much research, I made my first trade yesterday, (Am British, with a British Account, and bought IAG). 

I was sure when I opened the ticket, that SDRT was factored in to the price of the trade (as it seemed to be a few pence out from my spreadsheet calculation - I made a mental note to investigate that small differential later). 

Once the trade completed, it seems that I was only charged the book value of the trade plus £8 commission. 

In my trade history, it shows the consideration £xxxx.xx ; Commission £8 ; Charges £0.00 ; Costs/Proceeds as equal to consideration + commission.

 

Everything I have found online suggests that SDRT is charged through the CREST system at the point of transaction. That I should have been charged SDRT there and then. No funds in my account appear to be 'reserved' for SDRT.

I opened a web chat, and the chaps in India looked at my account. The end result of that was a statement that IG don't deal with SDRT, and that I would need to pay it independently. I am not confident that this advice was correct.

 

Can someone please advise? Is the SDRT charged through IG / CREST? Do I have some sort of introductory offer? How long should I keep funds in the account to deal with SDRT? - Am I missing something fundamental here?

    • When there's no volatility and very limited price action in the forex market what does a trader do? Are the only solutions/options: Risk more capital Use more leverage if possible Extend your trading time, meaning hold your trades longer Any other ideas?

    • Hi RFSmithers, Thanks for the tips... But when I searched for trusted "ECN" broker in Australia for CFD Index trading, IG Market is among the returned result! So with what you suggested and what the search result I got, IG Market seems to be still the one to stick with for CFD Index trading. Please note that, regarding the market trend is to be against your trade or not, from my experience so far, I think it is really up to you on when to enter the trade, for example: - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is flat with no trend, then it is just like you jump into the calm water and then you make the big splash which could be against yourself - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is on trending, where: if you enter against the trend, then you will be eaten alive from there - FULL STOP - Period; however if you enter on riding the trend, then you will be picking up the fruits along the way through...   So with the above, to summarise, it seems to me that (of course - correct me if wrong): 1) IG Market is still the trusted ECN broker in Australia for CFD Index trading 2) A trader needs to know when to enter the trade to ensure s/he to ride on the trend to pick fruits, but not to be eaten alive.   Cheers Victor           What do you think? Cheers.
