hi everyone I have a question, If I buy A CFD what is the deposit percentage.

hi, you are not really buying a cfd you are just betting on the price movement of a cfd so there is no deposit as such but you do need a certain amount in your account to cover any losses, this is called the margin requirement and is the amount you need to order to open the trade.

thanks Casey, but could you put a percentage on the margin required to buy a CFD based on the FTSE100.

Hi, the margin requirement for indices is 5% which equates to a max leverage or 20:1.

Thanks Casey. I am having trouble depositing money in my account and I tried calling  and emailing IG but I have got no response.

is it a first time transaction? sometimes the first deposit and withdrawal can be delayed due to the checks needed by multiple handlers (your Bank > Visa/Mastercard/Paypal > Payment Service Provider > IG) all have an anti-money laundering responsibilities that delays the first time deposit or withdrawal and more so if needs to cross country boarders.

I am new to the platform but it is my fourth deposit. It has happened before but t usually goes through if cut the amount and try again, but not today.

ok, that does sound odd, normally after the link is established there should be no further problems.

    • So trading has opened and the value of the shares is still wrong. Time to move brokers. Matter for the FSA?

    • So, I contacted IG support. They said it would be a WEEK before I could access my shares. A WEEK! Any chance of profit gone, left with the pickings after the market has taken whatever value it wants out of the new company. Still waiting for feedback from 'the enterprise team', whoever they are. FT has my holding up by 28.6% in shares, plus whatever premium the market adds (currently around 7%). Unacceptable.
