Daily Commodities Interest

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've had an open buy position on US oil for the past few days and have found that there have been daily transactions crediting my account with various amounts, under the description 'Daily Commodities Interest for 1 day Oil - US Crude'. I can't find any info anywhere about this anywhere. What interest rate is this? How would I calculate the amount?

JamesIG,

Thanks very much! I didn't get the exact answer calculating using that formula based on end-of-day prices, but it was close enough to make sense I think.

If I understand correctly, the reason I'm currently being credited is that the October futures price is currently lower than the September futures price. If/when that situation were to flip, my account would be debited every day?

Hi all,

So suppose I buy iron ore on spread betting account and I receive interest on this daily (credited), can this flip and can I be debited if the futures price goes on the other side of the spot price? Or for a certain commodity (like iron ore) will I always be credited for going long because the futures price will always be on a certain side of the spot price (always will be higher/lower)?

Could you also clarify which side (higher/lower) the spot price has to be in relation to the futures price in order to be credited?

Thanks for your time. Sorry for this question, I'm new to spread betting.

Hi JamesIG,

Where can I find the table that shows the overnight funding rates for different commodities?

 

Hi, they don't do a table for commodities (probably because it's such a tricky calculation) but you can have a go working it out yourself, see examples for commodities half way down this page.

    • Hi, just wondering if anyone at IG might be able to advise on this. Just checking through the available markets in IG share dealing - Hong Kong, Japan, Canada are noticeably absent as available countries. Is that coverage something IG might be able to offer in the future? I see the ADR/DR lines of some of those overseas stocks are offered, as they're listed on NYSE, Xetra, but none of the native stocks. There are some upcoming floats of interest: - PSYK ETF listing on NEO in Canada - Didi Chuxing potential IPO on HK exchange Thanks for any info.  
    • I'll leave the finer detail to working out the effectiveness to you - you'll soon know if it works or not - all I would say is test test and test it to master it and then you'll know   
    • Interesting if true. Looks suspicious though. "Contains OS data Crown copyright and database right 2020/21" doesn't look like a usual ONS disclaimer. Can you post a link to the ONS source? otherwise not worth anything, I could knock this up in Excel in 5 minutes....
