Micro Lots

Recommended Posts

IG when will you take a more flexible approach on position sizes. Most other brokers offer the option to trade micro contracts. Trading things like Copper and Coffee Arabica becomes problematic unless you have $50,000 trading balance. The copper and coffee $1 contracts can easily have $1000 plus swings in a day. Also IG's setup makes it very difficult to scale in to trades. If this option isn't addressed soon sadly will be forced to move an account I have had active for many years.

Thanks for your post. 

Unfortunately we have no control over the minimum leveraged we offer that is set by regulators but I will pass this information back about mirco lots. 

All the best
