Overnight Funding Charge Calculator.


Pike

Question

 

I've just spent the past hour trying to understand exactly what I would be charged for holding CFD contracts overnight. I'm talking Oil, PMs & stocks. And the calculations are different for each. Is there not a calculator somewhere on the site that can give me this information quickly?

 

Please someone tell me there is.

 

TIA

I did actually view those links while figuring out all the charges the first time around, but still I feel somewhere on the site there could be a simple calculator. This is pretty basic stuff. In MT4 I have a position-size-calculator indicator that tells me all this instantly. Not much use for share dealing.

Maybe IG would rather we don't think too much about the charges for holding overnight. Or any of the charges for that matter.

Cheers!

Hi, currently only FX and Precious Metals have the swap calc estimates listed. You need to add a watchlist to a workspace and click on the 3 stripes and add swaps (see link). Until the others are added it's either to calc or have a trade on the demo platform running to give an idea of the current daily rate.

    • When I started car shopping, I realized I knew nothing about checking out a used car’s past. In the past, I just looked at condition and price. However, a salesman showed me a detailed vehicle history report made by DIMO, a blockchain system tracking full data pulled from the car’s computers. I was amazed anyone could get such complete background details. While too pricey for me, this showed blockchain’s power to securely gather key info over time - from service to repairs to crashes. It made me recognize the need to evaluate history before buying.  DIMO builds thorough records to help buyers avoid “lemons”, accurately assess shape, check claims, get fair pricing, and feel confident around big investments. These histories even get passed to future owners, raising resale value. Where I once ignored backgrounds, now I know checking histories is key for informed used car buying. While test drives don’t tell the whole story, blockchain systems like DIMO allow transparency through permanent records. Understanding vehicle histories is vital for smart purchases.
    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
