FAQs

How does IG ensure deep liquidity on futures markets?

Futures are a highly liquid market, but there are times when this isn’t the case. Our CFD futures markets, however, remain highly liquid at all times thanks to our large number of clients and our technology – a smoother trading experience even on larger trades.

For our CFDs on commodity and bond futures, the last dealing day may not be the same as the underlying exchange-traded contract. As these futures approach their expiry date, the market can become illiquid – because most traders will have already closed or rolled over their contract to avoid physical settlement. Spreads often widen as a consequence.

By having our contracts expire slightly earlier than in the underlying, we ensure you receive the best price that we can offer.
