Overnight Funding Charge Calculator.

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

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.

I totally forgot to thank you for replying to this post Caseynotes.

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!

    • “In France, the government caved to pressure from a doctor who ran his own very small and rapid trial of the drug combined with an antibiotic in 26 people, using methodology that has been seriously criticised. Dr Didier Raoult, a professor of infectious diseases who works at La Timone hospital in Marseille, then declared in a video on YouTube that chloroquine was a cure for Covid-19 and should be used immediately.“ You can hardly call a trial with 26 people statistically significant considering 660k confirmed cases worldwide thus far and 30k deaths.
    • Has anyone noticed the strange behaviour of Bitcoin price at  8pm Friday until 8am Saturday? I'm new so could someone explain the gap in the chart, displayed in the screenshot attached. Some Fridays the chart stops for 12hrs and other Fridays for 7 hours, can you execute trades during these periods,  I thought crypto was 24/7.
