Who's it for?

We recommend DMA only for advanced traders. It’s suitable for those looking to trade market depth with algorithms and traders looking to participate in the pre-market and post-market auctions.

What are the costs?

  • Commission
    Our only charges are a small commission – the same as an OTC trade.

  • Exchange fees
    Depending on the exchange you wish to view or trade on, you may be liable to pay data fees. 

  • Other fees
    Under the terms of our customer agreement, we will also pass on to you any transaction costs, such as stock borrowing fees, which we incur as a result of your transaction.

DMA with IG

Our DMA service allows you to trade CFDs on underlying market prices and depth. DMA prices are not necessarily better than OTC (over-the-counter), as our pricing technology is engineered to find the best available prices for both. However, direct access to the markets can give you greater visibility and flexibility as a trader.

There are many added complexities to the trading environment, which can be an increased risk. When you place your order we take a position in the underlying market and at the same time you enter into a parallel CFD trade with us in the equivalent value (size and price). This means we can’t change or reverse your order once it’s been executed. 

Getting started

  1. To trade DMA with IG you need to open an account and activate DMA within our web-based dealer. Most clients will need to have a minimum $1500 cash balance on their account to activate DMA.
  2. You can then choose to activate the data feeds you need.
  3. Then choose which platform you’d like to trade on: our web-based dealer and iPhone/iPad apps, the specialised L2 Dealer, or your own front-end technology.
