What is the cost of placing a spread bet?

The cost of placing a spread bet is incorporated into the difference between the buy and sell price – also known as the spread. This means that the fee to deal will be reflected in your net profit or loss, and won’t be listed separately. 

Overnight funding charges and triggered guaranteed stop fees will be listed separately, usually in the ‘history’ area of My IG or the IG Trading app. You can find out how to get here by looking at Where can I see the fees I have been charged?
