Spread betting without leverage

Recommended Posts

Guest MrT

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

Not possible to the best of my knowledge.  You might as well just buy and sell shares/ETFs.

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.

lol trading futures avoids the overnight charges but it is hardly trading without leverage.

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

    • Ha yes, yesterday's S&P candle looks a bit different from when I last looked last night. Dow bull flag on yesterday's high. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
    • cheers.  Issue is that there are so many moving variables its hard to analysis properly, Seems like you need a hundred trades on the same stock / indices etc    I did a long trade on FTSE Cash yesterday 15min / 1 hour time frame. Rising MACD, Rising 200Ma, rising 20ma 20MA  broke  through 200ma 4 periods prior and continued on fro the rest of the day. Prior swing low was far too low for a sensible stop so I set it at below 20ma. It broke through the 200ma though.  Whether this is a good Strategy or not for FTSE 100 I don't know
    • Indices up, USD up. Gold, Oil and Bonds down. Today UK CPI, BoJ presser, CAD rate decision, US indy prod. AUD and NZD up, EUR and CHF down.
