Upgrade retail account to tier 1


Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

Newbie trader in ig.com. Is there any way, we can reduce the spread paid, something like upgrading basic retail account to some advanced account. 

Not eligible to qualify for pro account, but have just paid 10 pips as commission for Aussie US pair and it stung ;)

Hi, the min spread for audusd is 0.6 and the average is 0.76 however the spread will widen temporary during high volatility especially around a news release so it may have widened to 10 around 1:30 pm for the US CPI data but probably only for a minute or 2.

Thanks @Caseynotes. I missed mentioning, this was for forward, not the spot. 

Is there any way like depositing more money to have better spreads. Of course, I cant do 500K :)

Ok, well unfortunately no, the forwards are always going to be more expensive because you wont be paying any overnight funding so providing the trade stays open long enough then it will work out a lot cheaper than a spot market trade anyway.

The EU regulator recently banned all broker 'inducements' one of which was  preferential spreads for selected clients so not much IG can do, at least that I'm aware of 😕

    • Natural Gas remains 'the monster of the monsters', it requires no leverage and a lot of patience: lately formed a triple bottom, likely to test a previous support at 6400 and higher, it is a challenge for for those preferring CFD trading, especially for professionals trading high leverage! Otherwise can double, triple or more the equity and wipe out the account as well in a short period of time. It has no limits or previous time to count on, on any chart available! During the good days CAN tumble or spike up 7 -8% in a matter of seconds! IG remains the best for challenging the Natural Gas financial instrument!
    • It’s been a rocky start to the year for Bitcoin, but experts still say it will hit $100,000 — and that it’s more a matter of when, not if. Bitcoin on Thursday dipped below $20,000, falling down nearly 5% over the last 24 hours. This is the second time the largest crypto has fallen below $20,000 this month and it still remains under pressure, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA. “Bitcoin is struggling to hold onto the $20,000 level,” he says. “If Bitcoin breaks below the recent low around $17,500, there isn’t much support until the $14,500 level.” The latest crypto market crash was spurred by momentary de-risking from Wall Street as many investors are feeling pessimistic about the economy amid surging inflation, a shaky stock market, and rising interest rates. The crypto market has increasingly tracked the stock market in recent months, which makes it even more intertwined with global economic factors.
