Not sure I understand how daily interest / funding costs increase with P/L increases?

Question

When I take out a CFD with IG they buy a certain amount of stock on my behalf with margin and charge me interest on same for the margin difference... I get that, all fair. BUT why should the funding charge increase when my position / stocks increase in value? Surely the stock would have been purchased at a strike price and that has not changed from the initial purchase so I should be paying funding on that amount only.... feels like double dipping to me !

    • Is that a trick question..? I'm trying to have a broad picture.  And to consider (and develop an understanding of) as many influences on prices as I can.
    • And just so you can 'get where I'm coming from' for the last 6 months here is a data set from Asia I posted way back in February (Daily Dashboard thread). Looks pretty similar doesn't it and certainly a million miles from Ferguson's model predicting hundreds of thousands of deaths.
