@Rockette,

Please be careful.

What is the reasoning behind the person giving you advice? Why are they not placing the trade themselves? Do you trust them? You clearly do not know what a March Spread Bet contract is yet they are asking you to place a traded for a specific time period. Do they know something is going to happen in this period?

Maybe it is nothing but I worry about 'Third Party Insider Dealing'. 

Thanks very much for your reply and concern.

The person giving the advice is an internationally respected trader as part of an advisory service. I'm using a dummy account as I want to test the advice first before committing my money!

Thanks very much for your help. I've got it and can proceed OK.

I had the same question as R. However when I looked at rhe site for trading the share it did not have the cash /forward option at the top as indicated above. And what exactly is meant by a March forward contract.

rather than paying overnight charges you can hold until the expiry date without paying them. However

  • you pay a bigger spread
  • you HAVE to close them on (or before) the expiry date. You can 'roll' the contract, however this still means you close the trade, book the profit and loss, and then re buy a new position. The system / IG does this automatically but its still a close/reopen process.

Thank you cryptotrader but I still don't understand why I don't see the option for a forward contract at the top of the page as in the screen shot from Caseynotes

i am trading ana US equity that definitely  should  have a forward contract.

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year.
