interest paid or collected on deals?

Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry I am new but if I select "deal" for an immediate order, is there interest to pay? if yes, how much // no where on the position tab does it mention interest. Conversely if I add funds to my account that are unused, am I paid interest on the sum?

thanks for the help

Hi, there might be an interest charge if you hold a daily funded bet overnight though also you might receive a payment, there is no charge on Futures or Forwards contracts.

There is no interest paid on funds in your trading account.

What's not immediately obvious is that you pay overnight long interest on DFB indices, which can mean you end up paying more in charges than you get in dividends.  I don't know if you even get dividends on futures.

Hi

i am new.

Over night means, how is it worked out for different stocks, as there are different timings of stock exchanges. Does that mean we have to make note of timings of each exchange, where we are trading?

hi, overnight just means the trade is still open at 10pm and so your account will be credited or debited as per the pic below per trade contract size. Currently only FX has a working estimate.

see the guide in the link in the post above.

I can't find the option to show swap rates, and I'm usually fairly good with tech stuff :(

The option should show up in a watchlist though only available for FX at the mo.

    • There is the 'potential' for a breakout in Natural Gas from these price areas. 
    • One of our financial writers have written a piece on smoking vs vaping vs cannabis. Really interesting read. Here's a snip:  Main points:  Big Tobacco turns smoke into vapour Vaping: UK and US take different approaches … with different results Altria’s JUUL investment costs it dearly US vaping crisis highlights importance of a diverse portfolio Can Big Tobacco thrive as cannabis legalisation gains momentum? Altria gets stung for early move into cannabis Can vaping and other smokeless devices become key to the cannabis market?   Find the full article here: Vaping or cannabis: where’s the growth for Big Tobacco?  
    • I see a trend here ... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman refused to comment on Monday when asked about the hiring of an adviser who has discussed the benefits of forced contraception and said data showed the U.S. black population had lower IQ than white people. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-politics-adviser/johnsons-office-silent-as-rivals-call-for-adviser-to-be-sacked-idUKKBN20B1NI
