I'm new to Forex trading and wondering what is waiting on the expiry date. For example, if I look at the GBP/JPY, expiry date is 06/04/29. Is this the date until which the numbers like Margin factor will be valid, meaning that they may change the parameters?

Hello and welcome,

Can you give more details about where on the platform you are seeing this date? and is it within ProRealTime, MT4 or Web Platform?

The futures date is the rollover date where the spread must be paid again if you are staying in the trade (you don't pay overnight interest funding on futures). Check your settings for the rollover in the My IG dashboard > settings as to whether auto rollover or auto close trade.

Get the futures charts (if available) by the small arrowed dropdown box next to the DFB chart name. see pic.

I think that for daily funded bets or cash positions they have to put an expiry on it by the rules - but as you can see it is 2029 - so unless you are planning to hold the position for the next 9 years it isn't relevant.

If you are going with a futures bet vs. spot - then when the expiry date comes you need to either roll into the next one or close out/settle the position at expiry.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
