DFB and daily futures bet notes

1. a) Our DFB and daily futures index spread bets are quoted with reference to the front month contract in the underlying futures market. DFB prices are adjusted for the fair value between the prices of the cash index and relevant futures contract. Daily futures prices are adjusted for the fair value between futures contracts when the reference contract is changed.

b) Spreads are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions. On 24 hour index markets, our spreads depend on whether the underlying futures market is open (in-hours) or closed (out-of-hours). Other index markets are only quoted when the underlying futures market is open. Our dealing spreads may change to reflect the available liquidity during different times of day. Our normal spread during each time period is shown in the table.

c) Dealing spreads may be offered as a fixed or variable amount. If variable spreads are in use, then the spread shown in this table is the amount of IG spread added to the underlying futures market spread. Any variable dealing spreads are marked with an asterisk (*).

d) On all index markets, when the underlying futures market is open, we do not apply any weighting or biases to our pricing sources (with the exception of fair value adjustments).

e) During the out-of-hours sessions on 24 hour index markets, our quotations reflect our own view of the prospects for a market. This could include referring to price movements in other relevant markets which are open. Furthermore, business done by other clients may itself affect our quotations. There may be nothing against which to measure our quotation at these times.

2. For limited-risk bets a limited-risk premium is charged if your guaranteed stop is triggered. The potential premium is displayed on the deal ticket, and will form part of your margin when you attach the stop. Please note that premiums are subject to change, especially going into weekends and during volatile market conditions.

3. The Japan 225 is quoted based on a USD denominated contract. Clients can have their bets denominated in USD, GBP, EUR, AUD and JPY.

The Brazil 60 is quoted based on a BRL denominated contract. Clients can have their bets denominated in BRL and GBP. If the bet is denominated in BRL, profit and loss will be accrued and realised in BRL but cannot be withdrawn until converted to the base currency of their account.

In order to publish more accurate and reliable prices, IG calculates theoretical fair values for the China 300 and China A50 Indices rather than relying upon underlying market differentials.  In general where there are price discrepancies between the cash and futures markets, arbitrageurs return the market closer to its fair value. However, because of trading restrictions in China, these arbitrage trades are often restricted, resulting in wide variances and movements between the underlying market differentials and the theoretical fair values. 

4. Bets on stock indices, not already closed by the client, are closed on or after the last dealing day as follows:

(i) All daily futures bets expire on the following basis without IG spread:

  • Bets on Daily FTSE® 100 Futures expire at the official 16.30 settlement price of the relevant FTSE 100 futures contract on LIFFE.
  • Bets on Daily Wall Street Futures, Daily US 500 Futures and Daily US Tech 100 Futures expire at the official 21.15 settlement price of the relevant DJIA, S&P 500 or NASDAQ 100 futures contract.
  • Bets on Daily Germany 30 Futures expire at the official 21.00 settlement of the relevant DAX 30 futures contract on Eurex.

Please note that Daily Wall Street Futures, Daily US 500 Futures and Daily US Tech 100 Futures expire at 21.00 instead of 21.15 on the last dealing day of each month.

(ii) All stock index DFBs not closed or rolled by the client expire at the closing level of the underlying index on the last dealing day, plus or minus half the IG spread.

(iii) All futures bets on the FTSE® 100, Wall Street and index differentials expire on the basis set out below, and/or in the Information Table, without IG spread. All other futures bets expire on the basis set out in the information tables, plus or minus half the IG spread.

5. Where indicated, 24-hour dealing opens at 23.02 (London time) on Sundays, with the exception of Wall Street, US 500, US Tech 100 and Japan 225, which open at 23.00 (London time) on Sundays. 24-hour dealing closes at 22.00 (London time) on Fridays.

Ask dealers for information about public holidays.

6. Market trading times are given in London time, unless otherwise indicated. Please note that actual trading times are governed by local time in the country of the index's origin. Consequently, seasonal adjustments (such as daylight saving) in either the UK or the country of origin may cause times shown to be imprecise.

7. Bets on daily stock index futures can be rolled over provided we receive a rollover instruction from the client at least 15 minutes before the close of the underlying cash index.

When a bet on a daily index future is rolled over, the open bet is closed at the middle of the IG price, and a new bet is reopened at the same level plus or minus the IG rollover spread. Rollover spreads on daily index futures are shown in the daily index futures information table. (Please note that these should be used as a guide only, as they are subject to change).

8. For each day that a stock index DFB position is open, adjustments are calculated to reflect the effect of interest (i) and, if necessary, dividends (ii). A daily interest adjustment is calculated for any position that is opened before 22.00 (London time) and that is still open after 22.00 (London time). These adjustments are posted daily to the client's account. Please note that on Fridays open positions will be adjusted for 3 days funding covering the weekend.

(i) Interest adjustments are calculated as follows:

D = n x C x i / 365

Where:

D = daily interest adjustment
n = bet size
C = underlying index price at 10pm (London time)
i = applicable annual interest rate

Note: The formula uses a 365-day divisor for the FTSE® 100 and other GBP, SGD and ZAR denominated markets, and a 360-day divisor for all others. Positions on the India 50 cash contract will have funding attributed based on the prevailing INR (Indian rupee) interest rate, positions on the Brazil 60 will have funding attributed based on the prevailing BRL (Brazilian real) interest rate, positions on the China A50 or China 300 cash contract will have funding attributed based on the prevailing CNH (offshore Chinese yuan) interest rate, positions on the South Africa 40 will have funding attributed based on the prevailing ZAR (South African Rand) interest rate and positions on the Malaysia 30 will have funding attributed based on the prevailing MYR (Malaysian ringgit) interest rate, regardless of the currency of your trade.

Interest in respect of long positions is debited from a client's account, and interest in respect of short positions is either credited to or debited from a client's account.

(ii) A dividend adjustment is applied to take account of the ex-dividend adjustment to the index. This is the number of points by which the index price must be adjusted downwards to take account of those shares in the index which go ex-dividend at the close of the cash market. We will use the ex-dividend figure estimated by Bloomberg (E&OE), rounded to the tick size we use for that index, to determine what adjustment to apply. In the case of long positions, the dividend adjustment is credited to the client's account. In the case of short positions, the dividend adjustment is debited from the client's account.

9. Please note that tiered margins apply; this means that more margin may be required for larger positions. See our margins page for further details. You can find the tiered margins for each market from the Get Info section in our dealing platform.

Futures bet notes

10. a) Our index futures spread bets are quoted with reference to the front month contract in the underlying futures market. The prices quoted for spread bets, which are not on the front month contract, are adjusted for the fair value between that contract and the front month. Prices for spread bets on the front month futures contract are not adjusted.

b) Spreads are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions. On 24 hour index markets, our spreads depend on whether the underlying futures market is open (in-hours) or closed (out-of-hours). Other index markets are only quoted when the underlying futures market is open. Our dealing spreads may change to reflect the available liquidity during different times of day. Our normal spread during each time period is shown in the table.

c) Dealing spreads may be offered as a fixed or variable amount. If variable spreads are in use, then the spread shown in this table is the amount of IG spread added to the underlying futures market spread. Any variable dealing spreads are marked with an asterisk (*).

d) On all index markets, when the underlying futures market is open, we do not apply any weighting or biases to our pricing sources (with the exception of fair value adjustments).

e) During the out-of-hours sessions on 24 hour index markets, our quotations reflect our own view of the prospects for a market. This could include referring to price movements in other relevant markets which are open. Furthermore, business done by other clients may itself affect our quotations. There may be nothing against which to measure our quotation at these times.

11. For limited-risk bets a limited-risk premium is charged if your guaranteed stop is triggered. The potential premium is displayed on the deal ticket, and will form part of your margin when you attach the stop.

When a bet on a daily index future is rolled over, the open bet is closed at the middle of the IG price, and a new bet is reopened at the same level plus or minus the IG rollover spread. Rollover spreads on daily index futures are shown in the daily index futures information table. (Please note that these should be used as a guide only, as they are subject to change).

12. The Japan 225 is quoted based on a USD denominated contract. Clients can have their bets denominated in USD, GBP, EUR, AUD and JPY.

Asian & Australian futures notes

Australia 200 Futures at the Special Opening Quotation (SOQ) of the S&P/ASX 200 on the last trading day calculated to one decimal place. The SOQ is calculated using the first traded price of each component stock in the S&P/ASX 200 on the last trading day, irrespective of when those stocks first trade in the ASX trading day. This means that the first traded price of each component stock may occur at any time between ASX market open and ASX market close (including the Closing Single Price Auction) on the last trading day. Should any component stock not have traded by ASX market close on the last dealing day, the last traded price of that stock will be used to calculate the SOQ.

Hong Kong HS50 Futures at the settlement price of the Hang Seng on the last dealing day on the Hong Kong Futures Exchange. The settlement price is the average of the Hang Seng at five-minute intervals, rounded down to the nearest whole number, on the last trading day. Please note that this contract can only be dealt in until 16.00 Hong Kong time on the last dealing day.

Japan 225 futures at the special opening quotation of the Nikkei 225 Stock Average on the day following the last dealing day, which is used to settle the Nikkei 225 futures rounded to the nearest 1/10th of an index point. This contract can be dealt in until 21.15 London time on the last dealing day.

China H-Shares Futures based on the final settlement price of the Hang Seng China Enterprises index calculated on the trading day prior to the last business day of the contract month.

India 50 Futures based on the official closing price of the CNX Nifty Fifty on SGX, on the last Thursday of the contract month or the day before.

Singapore Blue-Chip Futures based on the Special Opening Quotation of the MSCI Singapore Free index on the day following the last trading day, as reported by SGX.

South Africa 40 Futures based on the official settlement price of the FTSE®/JSE Top 40 futures as reported by the JSE Securities Exchange on the third Thursday of the contract month.

14. 24 hours dealing starts at 23.00 London time on Sunday and finishes at 22.00 London time on the following Friday. Ask dealers for information about public holidays.

15. Market trading times are given in London time, unless otherwise indicated. Please note that actual trading times are governed by local time in the country of the index's origin. Consequently, seasonal adjustments (such as daylight saving) in either the UK or the country of origin may cause times shown to be imprecise.

16. On all futures bets, 1 point means 1 index point.

17. Bets on index futures are rolled over provided we receive your rollover instruction at least 15 minutes before our last dealing time.

When a bet on an index future is rolled over, the bet is usually closed at the settlement price on the day before the last dealing day, plus or minus half the IG spread, and automatically reopened at the settlement price for the succeeding contract, plus or minus half the IG spread with a 40% concession applied. This applies to bets on all index futures, except FTSE® 100, Wall Street, and FTSE®/Wall Street differentials, which are closed at the settlement price for the expiring contract the day before the last dealing day and automatically reopened at the settlement price for the succeeding contract, plus or minus half our normal spread.

If you have placed a controlled-risk bet on an index future, the bet is closed at the settlement of our price plus or minus half our normal spread, and automatically reopened at the middle of our new opening price plus or minus half our spread with a 40% concession applied, and plus or minus the controlled-risk premium. This applies to controlled-risk bets on all index futures, except FTSE®, Wall Street, and FTSE®/Wall Street differentials, which are closed with no IG spread and automatically reopened at the middle of our new opening price, plus or minus half our normal spread, and plus or minus the controlled-risk premium.

If you have stops or limits on your index future bet when it is rolled over, we will, unless otherwise instructed, place the stop or limit on the new bet at the same level, but adjusted for fair value. For example, if the price of the new contract is 20 points higher than the expiring contract, your stop or limit would be rolled forward at your existing level plus 20 points. This applies to both guaranteed and non-guaranteed stops and limits.
