Start trading Sprints today with the world’s No.1 CFD provider.*

*Based on revenue excluding FX (published financial statements, February 2018).

Sprint markets currency

If your account's default currency is GBP, EUR, USD, AUD or SGD all sprint positions will be denominated in that currency. If not all sprint positions will be in GBP.

Settlement

Sprint positions cannot be closed out before expiry.

All sprint positions that expire at an unchanged level, ie they expire at the exact strike level of the option, will result in you losing 50% of your premium. This applies to all markets.

Your profit or loss on the position is only considered due and payable once the position has expired. In the unlikely event the position does not expire, the position will be voided and your stake will be returned to you.

Forex

All forex sprint positions will settle against the midpoint of our price rounded to one decimal place for the relevant market at the time of expiry

Stock indices

Sprint positions on all stock indices will settle against the cash print of the market at the time of expiry. We will use the market level that is in our internal pricing system at the time of expiry. 

Commodities

All US Light Crude Oil and Spot Gold sprint positions will settle against the midpoint of our price for the relevant market at the time of expiry.

When settling a Sprint, IG will use the tick immediately on or preceding the expiry of the Sprint. No ticks after the expiry will be used.
