Paying Daily Interest after closing positions

Question

Guest Tony Sindacco

I see on my Transactions that I am paying daily interest on EUR/USD and USD/Can shares, even after closing these positions. I see interests being paid, but the only position I have open is Etherium [Which I am getting paid because its short position]. Why are daily interests being charged after closing position? And if this is a bug or something, how can I report?

Ah this is a demo account? 

This would relate to the demo issues a select number of clients have been experiencing. I'll make sure to forward on your demo account number. 

Alternatively, please feel free to open a new demo account in the 'MyIG' section.

ok, you got me there. The comms overnight funding calc is somewhat fraught with difficulties as it seems to be based on hypothetical futures factors, your best bet is to continue experimenting on demo. This thread was a recent convo on the subject.

Lol yeah it looks like they didnt get their answer either. Can anyone from ig just tell me directly what the overnight charge is for both gold and us crude at 100 per pip? That way I'll get a rough idea of how much you charge.

Or share with me the formula so I can work it out.

Thanks

How can the demo platform not tell you exactly what you need to know?

They should be able to work it out and give a definitive answer for any given time and say itll change. It would give me a rough idea. Having a complex calculation is not my problem, I certainly dont sympathise with anyone. If they cant work it out, simplify it.

Gold is looking like it's around 0.054 / -0.13

US Crude is around -0.11 / -0.73 

You take these values (in the form Short/ Long) and x but bet size. So £13 to Long £100 on Gold. For Gold, the majority of this is in the markets overnight TomNext rate rather than an IG charge. For the Oil the majority of this is for the movement up/down the futures curve (i.e. off set in part by the profit and loss which will impact the open position).

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
