Hi Martino. 

I can certainly help with some. 

Opening level - The price at which your trade was opened at.

Current level - The price at the current time as given by the market. 

The price change of the instrument, usually on a daily basis but you can get it over longer terms. i.e the stock has risen 4% today from it's close price yesterday. 

Running profit/loss - The difference you have from opening to now. If it's gone up and you are long profit, If it's gone down and you are short profit. 

Deposit required - Regulations dictate the margin required now in the European Union. Please see here. 


Hope this helps.

    • Greetings Are their any developments on bringing more share option to IG? We have a few in their such as Nvidia, AMD, Netflix, but very limited for professional and day option traders, Would their be are their any more on the horizon? In addition, can I get clarification that any gains earned is still under the tax free  "gambling / speculation" wrapper ?
