CFD Commissions & Charges - Confusion


SixEight

Question

Hello All,

I've been using IG recently as a demo for Spreadbetting, but I am leaning more towards CFDs in conjunction with ProRealTime Premium. The question I have is, what are the CFD commissions for US/UK shares? They state 0.1% in most places but when you dig deeper is also states £10 per transaction - is it both? If so, seems to make it hard to use CFDs via IG for day trading scalping.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

J

Hi, there are 2 basic types of account, leveraged or non-leveraged and the two have different costs, it's easy to get them mixed up.

The non-leveraged is the Share Dealing account where you buy and sell shares on which you pay spreads and commissions (£10 per transaction).

Leveraged is a CFD account where you can trade shares (and everything else) CFDs  and again pay the spread and also a commission but which is far less than the commission on buying the actual shares (0.1%) 

see this page on Shares CFDs;

Hi @Caseynotes, I've been following a lot of your posts on here which have been invaluable, thanks for replying to this one. I was getting really confused as the CFD Shares and ETF page was stating 0.1% commission plus the £10. 

 

So just to clarify, you pay the Spread on FX, Indices but you pay a commission (0.1%) for Share CFDs? Think link with the examples seems to imply the minimum charge does apply: https://www.ig.com/en/cfd-trading/charges-and-margins

The commission fee is the value of the position x 0.1%. If this comes in less than £10 then the minimum charge (£10) is paid instead. You also pay the spread.

Yes, everything else there is no commission you just pay the spread.

Do take note of the overnight interest charge though, usually this is fairly minimal but as with Oil just lately can suddenly sky rocket.

    • Naturally after the debut of ERC 404, it was only natural that developers would begin to take advantage of its ability to bridges the gap between fungible (ERC-20) and non-fungible (ERC-721) tokens. One such project is the Dancing Beans ($BEANS) which allows fractional ownership of hilarious meme-inspired creatures NFTs on the blockchain. About a week ago I wrote about the exponential rise of Pandora to 20,000% plus in just five days setting the bar high for competition! I also spoke about other NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club but Dancing Beans brings a fresh twist with. While Focusing on fun and interactivity and community-driven approaches the Dancing Beans team is constantly listening to their fans and creating new experiences based on their feedback... For me though, the question is if Beans can follow the successful dancesteps of Pandora and make players, NFT collectors and investors dance about the figures in their wallets. With my fingers crossed, I'm inclined to hold the Beans I bought on Bitget after the recent listing and it has already gone up by 24%... What are your thoughts guys? Pandora style or nah?

This scenario sets the stage for the formation of Wave (c) of ii), marking a pivotal moment for traders to gear up for the upcoming long trade setup across the indices and specific stocks discussed in our analysis. It's important to note, however, that Apple (AAPL) may stand as an exception in this trend. Currently, we are maintaining open long positions in several stocks, with the strategic goal of further building these positions into Wave iii) and beyond.
