  1. ETFS Long SEK Short USD. I'd like to use this as a hedge against $ risk in a portfolio. Are there any overnight fees if one would like to stay in a position for a couple of months? I'd use USD/SEK futures but IGmarkets doesn't seem to offer these and the overnight funding fee makes it infeasible to stay in them over long periods of time.
  2. https://www.ig.com/en/help-and-support/cfds/fees-and-charges/how-is-funding-on-forex-positions-calculated#:~:text=A tom-next rather than,cost on a long position.
  3. https://www.ig.com/en/help-and-support/cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-ig-s-options-cfd-product-details Is the bid/ask exactly the same as quoted by the underlying market on share options? Are the only charges the comission or is there a spread, and if there is a spread is it different from the underlying market?
  4. If I would like to be able trade from my IG-account, but utilising say a different data-provider, such as - Infront. https://www.infrontfinance.com/support-downloads/ Would that be possible, basically via that software executing trades from my IG account?
  5. I am currently looking at Swedbank AB stock, which has a margin of 10%. The current share price is at 140 SEK. D = n x C x i / 365 n=amount of stocks, c=closing price i=market rate +-2.5% is the formula that IG uses, with 360 being the divisor for markets that are not British, South African or Singaporian. So if wanted to loan a 1000 shares, the daily interest would be; 1000*140*2.5%-(0.5%*)/360= 7.78 SEK/day? Is my calculation correct, or am I wrong when it comes to the market rate? Is it STIBOR I should use, the 12 month or how do you calculate this exactly?
  6. Yes, I found their excel-spreadsheet marking which stocks are possible to short and those not. However I still don't get why I sometimes get "order rejected" on stocks that are both longable and shortable. Any ideas?
  7. I've been seeing this whilst trying to go short on certain stocks but I haven't been able to figure out why this message pops up? It usually happens with stocks that already have a high amount of short-interest on them. But even if that is the case, why is IG not letting one short these stocks?
  8. The old platform had an option to display everything in terms of points/ticks when looking at the P&L, and the new one only has monetary values. Is there a way to change this so it only reflects ticks/points?
  9. I am not following. Is the volume of SP500 CFDs reflective of the underlying futures volumes or not? Likewise for other assets such as crude e.g. It is confusing.
  10. If one enables the volume tool, does it show the amount of underlying contracts traded in the futures market that the CFD resembles?
  11. I did, but is such a massive miss that I am surprised that IG hasn't noticed this.
