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

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at EUR/USD.          
    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released. IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph FSTA, looks at the chart of JP Morgan (JPM) as an opener. Axel also examines a trade around US inflation and chooses to analyse the S&P 500.
