Card payments are protected by Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. These secure payment protocols are known collectively as 3-D Secure, designed to reduce the possibility of card fraud. If you have not already enrolled in these services, you will be directed to a secure screen by your card issuer when you make your first payment. The information that you enter is not disclosed to Intertrader. Each further payment will be protected by the same mechanism via your card issuer, before you are seamlessly returned to our payments page to complete your transaction.
No. We reset your applicable spread fees at the start of every calendar month.
Unfortunately we do not offer TradeBack on MT4 trades at present. The spreads and commissions are calculated differently on MT4 and therefore MT4 trades are currently excluded from the TradeBack calculation.

If you have an open position on a stock when it goes ex-dividend, we will make an adjustment to your account equal to the size of the dividend. If you have a long position this adjustment will be credited to your account, subject to a 20% ‘haircut’ to cover tax and other charges. If you have a short position this adjustment will be debited from your account. For instance, if you are long £10/point (the equivalent of 1000 shares) of Vodafone and the announced dividend is 8p per share, we will credit your account with (8p x 1000) x 80% = £64. If you are short £10/point we will debit 8p x 1000 = £80 from your account. The price of a stock typically falls by the amount of the expected dividend following a dividend announcement, as anyone now purchasing shares will not qualify for the dividend payment. This price shift will also directly affect the level of any index of which that stock is a constituent, from the time that the stock goes ex-dividend. If you have an open position on any such index, we will make cash adjustments to your account to reflect the resulting change in value (in full, without any deductions) on the ex-dividend date. This will be a credit on long positions and a debit on short positions. In certain cases, companies may make other specific payments to shareholders, in addition to scheduled dividend payments. Where this happens we will make the relevant cash adjustments on the applicable date, to clients holding positions in a relevant stock or index. MT4 dividends Please note that not all indices receive 100% of the dividend for long positions.

The most obvious difference between a spread bet and a CFD (Contract For Difference) is the way each is viewed in terms of tax liability. When trading CFDs, traders are held accountable for taxes after capital gains are realised. This liability might lead many to believe that spread betting is always the preferable method but this is not always the case. One benefit of CFD trading is that losses can actually be written-off on your tax liabilities. This is not the case for spread bets because these trades have no tax liability. Some traders therefore prefer CFDs because they offer a higher level of liability protection.
Forex prices are sent via data feeds, which show the best available bid (purchase) and offer (sell) prices currently available from a network of large foreign exchange banks. These prices are quoted in each forex pair (the relative value of one currency against another). In some cases, the bid price will be derived from one bank and the offer price from another, it all depends on which bank is offering the best price for each value. The difference between the bid and offer price is referred to as the ‘spread’ and this includes the amount that is charged by your spread betting provider to complete the transaction.
The major stock indices quoted by your spread betting provider are always tied to a futures market. This futures market reflects the current price of the underlying asset and your final broker price is determined after some small fee adjustments are made. These adjustments are comprised of dividend payments (due before the expiration date of the futures contract) and the cost of carry (interest rate fees). After these adjustments, the current value (often called the ‘fair value’) is sent to the data feed in your trading platform.
