Oil Charges

Hope all is well and safe , 

 

Had a strange charge appear on my statement and must be wrong but IG usual arrogant self to small traders just ignored my messages. I opened a oil trade at £1 a point around 8.10pm and closed at 11.15pm same day for a small profit of £11.20 and the next day I get hit with a daily charge of £22.21 surely that cannot be right for a trade of 3 hours. 

However IG wont explain why the charge , hope some can shed some light on this as I am under the impression we pay the spread not a commission

Kind Regards

Hi, if you hold any spot (cash) leveraged position through 10pm you will automatically be credited or debited the overnight funding fee. As has been discussed on the forum over the last few days the fee for oil is currently very high due to the large difference between the first and second futures contract prices which is central to the nightly calculation.

see more here.

Hi GTS, this is explained in details in the contract you signed when you joined IG.

I see the armchair legal eagles chimed with about as much help as a chocolate fire guard, just as well there are good guys here to help cheers to Caseynotes as that makes sense , I thought the roll over was midnight but felt the charge excessive as the FX & gold trades are pennies to hold.

    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
