Here's the answer to your question

"You can get access to ProRealTime charts at no extra cost if you transact at least four times in a given month. However, if you don't meet this requirement, or your trading activity is of extremely low value, then a £30 per month fee will apply on the last day of every calendar month."

 

Nobody has ever found out what "extremely low value" means, but you should be fine if you place 4 times per month. I assume the 4 trades need to be on live and not on demo, otherwise what's the point

PRT is a solid charting package - well worth the money.

If  you're trying to game the free offer don't get pissed when you get burnt. Lol.

I mean don't get me wrong - it's **** phrasing - but what they're saying is 'bring in the spread to cover the costs of us offering this to you for free and it will be for you'.

Assume you need to pay the cost of spread to cover the 30 quid. i.e. £30 / 4 = £7.50 a point trade on something with a 1 point spread. Open and close 4 x £7.50 trade. OR whatever to cover that like 30 x £1 a point (on a 1 point spread).

thanks my thinking anyway.

Or just go here https://www.prorealtime.com/en/prices

and pay through the nose for all those data feeds. Tick all those data feeds you get with IG and see those prices rack up into the hundreds of euros a month...

Not placed any trades on live account in November and boom got the fee charged. Without receiving any prior warning via email or similar though.

At least we know that they actually charge this now if you don't trade :D

    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
