Swap-free trading with IG explained

An IG swap-free account enables you to trade a range of futures contracts expiring every Friday. By their nature, futures contracts are free from interest charges or swaps and instead you trade the asset at an agreed price – which, when you trade with IG, is priced directly from the underlying futures market.
