Hi, I hope someone can help me, I love the IG platform but I'm not sure if a small trader could make a profit with their fees, Id like to start with £1000 is it worth going in with this amount. I am thinking that you may need to a lot more to absorb the fees. Is anyone in my situation, thanks

Hi, are you referring to a share dealing account or are you meaning a leveraged spread bet or cfd account?

I phoned IG and the guy said it was £8.00 to open the CFD trade and then £8.00 to close

 

I think they may have misunderstood, the £8 would be commission on a share trading account. The SB and CFD work differently, there are no fees other than the spread you pay to enter a trade. If you pay tax in the UK the SB account type is the better option. £1000 is enough to start trading though you would need to keep your position sizes quite low but you will see how it all works on the demo platform.

    • Look Ahead to 09/02/23: US Initial jobless claims; AZN, ULVR, LYFT earnings Hot on the heels of surprisingly strong US jobs numbers, we get initial jobless claims data. AstraZeneca’s (AZN) pipeline will be in focus. Plus, Unilever (ULVR) Credit Suisse (CSGN) and Lyft (LYFT) also report.

    • Since USD/JPY has given a technical sell signal, we would like to go short the cross at ¥130.85 with a downside target at ¥126.50 and a stop-loss just above Monday’s high at ¥132.95.
