Correct margins?


Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am completely new to spread betting and just signed up for a demo! I am unable to place a trade currently on 'Amazon' as the markets are closed. However I attempted to play around with the settings as though I was about to buy at a size of 0.5. The attached screenshot shows this. However, I was a little surprised that I have put the minimum trade size allowed yet the guaranteed stop (set at the minimum of 10%) is £16,464.70! Can someone confirm that this is the smallest lot I could put on 'Amazon'!? I might as well buy the share in the traditional way.

 

Any help much appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Thanks for your post. 

Apologies for the delay we didn't have support on community this weekend. 

When markets are closed the stop distances will be larger, they can also be wider when there's market volatility. When the markets are open you will see the stop distances tighten. 

All the best

    • WD Gann Said over 100 years ago "When TIME & PRICE BALANCE, the trend HAS to change" . Yes, there is a definite maths relationship, Via Gann or Elliot-waves. The pity is I cannot get Gann Angles on IG as they are not properly defined as per Gann, and do NOT REMAIN FIXED AT THOSE ANGLES WHEN YOU CHANGE TO ANY TIMEFRAME!!!!!!!! Even the Gann fan angles, used by all brokers, are a joke. These angles are not set arbitrarily as the system allows, and no means to measure angles!!!!  
    • Making money through trading involves analyzing markets & making informed decisions. One buys assets at low prices & sells them high.To break it down, traders study charts, news, and economic indicators to spot potential opportunities. They use technical analysis to identify patterns and trends and fundamental analysis to assess the health of a market. Timing is key – traders aim to enter and exit positions at the right moments to maximize profit.Also, there are some tips on how to make money fast – they're out there, and they work. But remember, trading isn't a guaranteed shortcut to quick cash. It takes discipline, risk management, and continuous learning.
