IFC Markets is extending the range of instruments of the group Commodity CFDs

December 12, 2013

In October 2013 new instruments of the group Commodity CFDs have become available for IFC Markets clients, trading on MetaTrader 4 real accounts: Brent Crude Oil, Cocoa, Coffee, Copper, Corn, Cotton, Feeder cattle, Heating oil, Live cattle, Natural Gas, Oats, Orange Juice, Soybeans, Soybean Meal, Sugar and Wheat.

CFD (Contract for Difference) is aimed for trading on the basis of fluctuations of current market prices of the base asset, not owning it physically. The distinctive feature of the instruments, provided by IFC Markets, is that they are based on commodity futures without an expiration date, as a synthesis of the two nearest liquid futures, and are smoothly transferred from the old to the next new future, without gaps and without the need of reopening the position due to expiration.

IFC Markets is the only company, providing its clients trading CFDs on Commodities with uninterrupted type of contract for real trading. First of all, it is interesting for serious clients, oriented on a long-term investment.

Another important factor for this type of investors is the size of swaps, which they have to pay. IFC Markets offers unique conditions for Swap operations not only for currency pairs, but also for other groups of instruments, including CFDs on Commodities. For this group of instruments the principle of interest-free borrowing of non-currency assets is applied.

Swap calculation is tied to the corresponding quoted currency of the instrument. For example the instrument Brent, CFD on Brent Crude Oil, is tied to the US Dollar. When opening a short position on the instrument and rolling it over, the client does not have to pay for borrowing contracts of oil at all. Instead, the client gets reward for depositing US Dollars at the corresponding current interbank overnight interest rate (USD Libid), leading (in case USD Libid is positive) to a positive Swap!

Such trading conditions are really unique, as in most cases Swap for Commodity CFDs is set by a company as a fixed amount, usually negative for both long and short positions. Quite rarely Swap is tied to short-term Interbank rates, like for currency pairs, but in this case, some companies may add their own quite significant interest, thereby, worsening the conditions for clients.

The introduction of uninterrupted CFD contracts with market Swaps is an important event not only for IFC Markets, but also for the entire market. Setting beneficial customer service standards and introducing new services, IFC Markets becomes a leader in the market of CFD contracts.
