Hi. Does anybody know if it is possible to spread bet without leverage (so I could keep my position without overnight 'borrowing' costs)? Thanks.

The futures or forwards markets are designed specifically for holding trades longer term and do not incur overnight funding charges but do have a larger spread which must be repaid every time the contract is rolled over (usually every 3 months).

To find if futures or forwards are offered for the market you are looking at check for a dropdown box next to the title, see pic below.

Therefore if you keep you position overnight then there will be costs/charges I am afraid. It would be great if there was not but that is the way it is. IG need to maximise their profits.

I was also interested in this topic.

At least to choose your own leverage scale( for example on Etoro you can do it) from 1 up to the max  which is set from the IG. In this way not just overnight fees are reduced but also risk. 

It would be great if we could

I would be also very interested by this feature. We should pay overnight charge only on the borrowed part, not on the part you can finance with your cash.

How can we suggest this to IG?

Guest That USED TO BE the Norm..

I used to use IG some years ago and spreads without leverage was the NORMAL state then.    You could opt for leverage or opt not to use it. 

But on refreshing the account a year or two ago from idled state I was told they'd ceased offering this.   The training accounts have no leverage,  sadly all the live one do now.

It's important to approach futures trading competitions with caution, ensuring one's financial stability and a comprehensive understanding of the market.

    • As a newbie crypto trader, I dove headfirst into the world of futures trading on Bitget. Feeling overwhelmed by the charts and analysis, I discovered their copy trading platform. It was a revelation! Following the strategies of Bitget's elite traders, I learned the ropes while making real profits. Their expertise took the guesswork out of trading, allowing me to focus on understanding the market. This new Bitget Futures Elite Trader Selection Program is fantastic news. It incentivizes these top traders, giving them greater exposure, while also helping new users like myself identify proven performers. It's a win-win for everyone, and a huge step forward in making futures trading more accessible and successful for beginners. Thanks Bitget!    
    • Ontology is a high-performance, open-source blockchain that aims to revolutionize the way we approach digital identities, data sharing, and trust in the digital realm. One of the standout features of Ontology is its dual-token model, which separates the roles of ONT and ONG. While ONT serves as the staking tool for nodes and governance, ONG operates as the value-anchoring utility token for on-chain applications and transactions. This innovative approach mitigates the risk of turbulent fluctuations in the native asset value, ensuring a stable and efficient ecosystem. The ONG listing on Bitget is particularly exciting for several reasons. Firstly, it aligns with Ontology's recent announcement of a $10 million fund aimed at fueling the innovation and adoption of Decentralized Identity (DID) through the ONT and ONG tokens. This initiative underscores the project's commitment to empowering, educating, and evolving its ecosystem in exciting new ways.
