CFD's in an ISA?

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently opened an IG. SB /CFD/share dealing account. If I transfer my ISA from my existing broker to IG can I trade CFD's inside this ISA? This would be mainly to avoid the 0.5% tax.

Hi @Chaser - unfortunately you are unable to trade CFD's via an ISA account.

Everyone in the UK over the age of 18 has an annual £20,000 ISA allowance for 2018/19, however because a CFD is a leverage trading offering it wouldn't fit within the tax efficient ISA wrapper. 

If you are looking at a different leverage offering which is tax efficient, may I suggest having a look at the spread betting offering we have? You can see an in depth comparison between CFD and spread betting here, and further info on spread betting specifically at this link. Please note this is for UK residents only.

    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.
