Shares contract details

Shares market insight

How do we make our share prices?

IG’s derived share price is a real-time price, created from the raw data of one or more exchanges, which can’t be reverse-engineered back to the original price.

Derived prices are available as the free data option, and only on our OTC platforms. You’ll continue to see real-time raw exchange data if you upgrade your data feeds or if you access our DMA platform.

Why is IG quoting derived prices?

Derived prices give our retail clients a simpler trading experience and make it easier for you to access the equity markets, while ensuring the quality of execution is not compromised. You can:

  • Access more equity instruments immediately on demand, with no need to complete exchange forms or activate exchange data
  • Feel more engaged with the markets you trade, in comparison with delayed data
  • Benefit from lower and more transparent trading transaction fees if you currently pay exchange data charges.

How do derived prices compare to raw exchange prices?

The main difference is that derived prices are usually wider. However, the variation is always very small – often just a fraction of a tick – and it won’t affect your execution. We’ll continue to honour our commitment to best execution, so the introduction of derived pricing has absolutely no impact on the quality of your execution.

The images below compare a set of derived prices against the equivalent exchange prices. As you can see, the difference is subtle. For example, in the case of Apple (All Sessions) the variation is just one tick on the sell price, while for Next plc the difference is a single tick on the buy price. For Facebook, the derived sell price is 20 ticks lower than the exchange price. However, in each case, execution is always against the better price, ie the exchange price.

Will stop and limit execution remain the same?

Yes, the method for triggering and executing stops and limits stays exactly the same. We execute against raw exchange buy/sell prices for CFDs, never derived prices, and always ensure best execution on every trade.

Please note that it’s possible for our derived buy/sell price to move through your stop level without your stop triggering, or for your limit to be triggered without our derived buy/sell price reaching the limit level. This is again because stops and limits are triggered and filled based on raw exchange prices, and not the derived prices we display.

Will my open positions be valued against derived or exchange prices?

We now value open positions against derived prices. However, because we base execution on the slightly more beneficial exchange price, your realised P&L may be marginally better than the P&L you see on the platform.

Do charts display derived prices?

Live data on charts shows derived prices, while historical data displays exchange prices. If you have upgraded your data feed to display exchange data, both live and historical data will show raw exchange prices.

What will happen to delayed prices with snapshots?

We’ll continue to offer delayed prices with snapshots where there’s no derived alternative, or if the derived price would provide you with a worse trading experience than delayed data. 

Am I not trading on true exchange prices?

Yes, you are. Derived data is for redistribution purposes only – for execution we always use true exchange prices. That means all trades, including stops and limits, will be executed at the best possible price we can source from multiple trading venues, under our best execution policy.

Can I view raw exchange data?

You’ll still be able to choose to see an underived, real-time raw data feed on our CFD and share dealing platforms. This will incur data redistribution charges, which may not be rebated. See the Data Feeds section in My Account for more information.

New to Share CFD trading?

Shares are one of the most popular and well-known financial instruments. With IG, our share CFDs provide exposure to changes in share prices but cannot result in delivery of actual shares by or to the client. So if you’re considering trading share CFDs, it’s extremely important to research both the company and the industry that it’s in.

An added benefit of trading shares is receiving dividends. They represent your share of the company’s profits and are usually paid out twice a year. The amount you receive depends on how much the management distributes to shareholders, and how much it reinvests back into the business.

Funding lightbox

How is funding on shares calculated?

Size for CFDs means number of shares.

Closing price means underlying market price when the market closes.

If your trade is in GBP

Size × closing price × LIBOR +/- 2.5% ÷ 365

Based on LIBOR one month overnight rate

If your trade is in USD

Size × closing price × US LIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 360   

If your trade is in EUR

Size × closing price × EURIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 365   

The formula uses a 365-day divisor for UK, Singapore and South African shares, and a 360-day divisor for shares in other markets.

 

Shares example detailed

Selling the CapitaLand Ltd: detailed example

  CFD
Underlying market/value CapitaLand Ltd 3.54/3.55
Our price 3.54/3.55
Trade

Buy at 3.55

Trade size 10,000 shares
Margin required

SGD 3550

Number of shares x price x margin rate (10%)

What happens next?

By 5:05pm the market has risen to 3.60: this is the price our funding.

It rises steadily the next day, reaching 3.90

Funding

Overnight funding charge of SGD 3.15

(One-month Sibor + 2.5% eg 0.69% + 2.5%) x number of shares x price/365

(3.19 % x 10000 x 3.60) / 365

Underlying market

3.895/3.90

Close

Sell at 3.895

Gross profit

3.55 - 3.895 = 0.345

Gross profit = 0.345 x 10000 shares = SGD 3450

Costs

Commission SGD 74.45

Value of position x 0.10% (Minimum SGD 15)

(10000 x 3.55) x 0.10% = SGD 35.50

(10000 x 3.895) x 0.10% = SGD 38.95

Funding: SGD 3.15
Net profit

SGD 3,372.40 profit

What if...

If the underlying market fell to 3.40 instead:

3.40 – 3.55 = -0.15

-(0.15 x 10000 shares + SGD 3.15 + SGD 74.45) 

Gross loss = SGD 1577.60
