Interactive Brokers CFD Product

Had an email this morning announcing the arrival of IB's CFD product.

Details are:
- large-caps only (looks like FTSE100 stocks)
- sliding scale coms starting at 5 min, for trade values <1m (down to 0.015% for trade values >500m)
- financing from LIBOR+1.5% (falls to L+1% above 70k balance and L+0.5% above 700k)
- 10% margin.

Looks a reasonable deal, particularly on financing.

Interactive are still a good broker, but CMC and IG are prbably more competitive now.

Our CFD highlights:

- We ask a sliding scale that starts at 8 to 1.5 basis points ie the more you trade the less you pay.
- You can trade through any of our trading platforms, Web Trader, Trader Workstation, Mobile Trader and API.
- Low finance fees.
- You have access to the underlying and best execution (Smart Order Routing).
- Account protection of over $500,000.

We hope you compare us to the others and make the best choice for you.

I think 5 minimum for less than 1million is expensive. My trades are a long way less than 1m each.
Is it 5 per point minimum as per SBs or 5 per trade minus profit/loss ?

I agree this is a little costly...well compared to other brokers. Commissions are getting a lot more competitive with bothe CMC and IG dropping them recently!

JTrader, just out of curiosity are you an employee of a broker?
