New Wall St indices charges direct comparisons?


The new planned indices charges including Wall St do not show direct comparisons to existing charges and how much they differ. Why not?

Yes I noticed that too which is very obscure from IG. 

For me they should have clearly shown what the current charges are and what they are changing to come middle of February 2019. This way all customers know current charges and the increase, decrease or staying the same level of all assets they trade.

It really is not that difficult for IG to have done this.

I think you are referring to the increase in margin requirements as have been discussed elsewhere on the forum? If so, then it's important to note that this is not a charge, but is rather just the amount you need to deposit (which remains ring fenced) for you to put on a leverage trade. 

All current margin requirements are on each deal ticket and will be dependent on your account type. For example a pro client will have different margin requirements than a retail client. They should be very easy to locate and I have included an example below.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.

      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
