Unrecognised charges


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am new to IG, after a couple of weeks to observe the market on IG, i started my first trades today. Things were going fine, until I figured out something went wrong with the total profit/loss after trades.

to be in detail, I’ve found out that some how i got charged $117.29 for my $390.98 loss ( it’s on guarantee stop and i dont think it will cost me 1/3 of the amount). Moreover, right after that i got a gain of $77.45 and then they charge me $93.88 (this one is guarantee stop as well).

please note that those charge wont be showed in “closed trade tabs”, they’re showed in the “history -> transaction”

if anyone could, please explain to me about this issues as i feel like they 100% scam all of our money no matter what. Please put down your ideas, thanks.

Hey @Ivan1602

If something is converted it's simply the profit/ loss converted at the current exchange rate. 

The A$117 CRPREM charge does seem high. When we have a guaranteed stop charge we will not change it. Say you traded and the CR premium was 2pts it would be the size x contract size x 2pts. If your position is open and the CR premium changes to 40pts and your stop is triggered we will only charge you the 2 pts premium as that's what you agreed to pay when the position was opened. 

I would advise reaching out to our helpdesk who can look into the account and advise you further on that charge. 

All the best

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
