IG Markets South Africa is dropping its headline commission rate on South African Share CFDs by 15 basis points, to just 0.2%. Share CFDs can be traded on over 130 South African shares using the award-winning trading platform offered by IG Markets.
Robert Bowen, Head of IG Markets South Africa, commented:
"The level of commission paid by traders inevitably has a substantial impact on their portfolio. IG Markets South Africa recognises this fact reducing rates accordingly to allow our clients to maximise their trading potential."

Share CFDs also have no fixed contract period, allowing the trader to leave or begin CFD trades at any point during trading hours.
