Reduced minimum bet sizes



I just wanted to update all Community members to let them know that we have recently reduced the minimum bet sizes on some key indices, commodities, and FX markets. This has been done for both UK spread betting accounts and European CFD accounts. 

What are the minimum bet sizes for indices, commodities and FX on IG?
Correct as of 6th September 2018 but subject to change

Continued feedback

A key aim of Community is to keep a two way dialogue open between our client base and those on our trading services support team, core dealing and developer teams. The decision to reduce minimum bet sizes across these markets has in part been due to feedback received from a number of our clients and those on Community. A big thank you to those who have shared their thoughts on this over the last few weeks. 

Please feel free to continue to add feedback and suggestions on Community at any point. If you have any feedback on this specific change please feel free to add it below. 

All the best
IG Community moderator team

@SMTTrading,  that looks to be the case for the CFD platform as the demo for Ftse has min at 1 contract and not the 0.5 stated above.

On the spread bet platform the min is 0.5 on both live and demo.

Are there any plans to apply these changes to the Demo accounts? Currently they're all 0.5/pt which differs from live (for example Wall St is 0.25 on live, 0.5 on demo). It would be nice to be able to practice on the demo account with the same values as live.
