Paying Daily Interest after closing positions

Guest Tony Sindacco


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?

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.

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).

    • In my opinion, higher lev is for scalpers only! For day or swing traders, either spot or lower lev is always recommended!
    • Just now, according to Glassnode data, the number of addresses holding more than 100 BTC has reached a four-month low, currently standing at 15,955.
    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts?
