* If you have a traditional weekday position on the FTSE, Germany 30 or Wall Street when IG closes on Friday night the valuations of these positions will not change during Sunday trading.

1 Any bitcoin positions you hold will be affected by Sunday Trading. This additional trading period on Sunday means not only do you have longer to speculate on the price of bitcoin, but also any stops and limits you have to open can be filled on Sundays.
2 Based on number of active UK financial spread betting accounts (Investment Trends 2015); for CFDs, based on revenue excluding FX (published financial statements, September 2015).
3 Please note that Sunday positions with attached stops/limits will not be netted off against existing weekday contracts. In this instance the Sunday position will roll into a new weekday position, with the same stops/limits attached to this. Similarly, Sunday positions will not net off against existing weekday contracts if the weekday contracts have stops/limits attached. In this instance, Sunday positions will be rolled into new weekday contracts.
Let's say you have a position on Wall Street still open at 10.40pm on a Sunday. It will automatically be rolled into our existing weekday contracts when they open as normal on Sunday night at no charge.
Your weekday positions will NOT be affected by our offering of Sunday indices unless you hold an existing Sunday contract at 10.40pm, in which case this position will net off against any weekday contract held in the opposite direction3.
Our current bitcoin contracts are now available on a Sunday, therefore any stops and limits you hold will be affected by our extended trading hours. This extra trading period means that you have longer to specualte on the price of bitcoin, and also that any stops or limits you have to open or close positions can be filled on Sundays.
So, on Friday if you have a position open on one of our bitcoin markets it will be affected by Sunday trading.
Say you are long £5 on our weekday FTSE when the underlying market closes on Friday, but rumours emerge on Saturday that the Prime Minister is going to resign.
If the rumours are confirmed you believe the FTSE will fall, so want to reduce your exposure.
On Sunday morning, we quote a Sunday FTSE price of 6700. Rather than wait for the weekday market to open, you decide to sell £5 of our Sunday FTSE at 6700.
In this scenario your £5 long position on the weekday FTSE is now offset by your £5 short position on the Sunday FTSE.
A few hours later the Prime Minister announces their resignation, and our weekday FTSE market reopens on Sunday night at the lower price of 6600.
However, as you hedged your long weekday FTSE position at 6700 by trading on Sunday, you’re protected against the losses involved with closing at the weekday market opening price of 6600.
Any Sunday positions must be held until 10.40pm (London time) to rollover into a standard weekday contract, and thus net off against your existing weekday contract.
