Hello, I am new to IG platform but have trade S&P 500 emini's 10 yrs ago and am interested in trading it again - can someone tell me how I can trade emini's on IG ?

Hi, you can trade the S&P 500 with IG but on IG MT4  it's called the SPX 500, on their web based platform I think it's called something else eg US 500.

The emini is regarding the cdf contract size, once you have the chart up click on the small dropdown box arrow next to the chart name to see different contract sizes.

Guest question

i am considering depositing around 500.00 into the account 

Hypothetically how would i trade a CFD contract on these two examples or is there another instrument that i would use to enter these trades .

Example No 1 :  lets say I entered a sell order on the SP500 at 4469 and wanted to set my stop at 4489 which is risking 20 points ( how much would each point or tick = in risk )  is this dependent upon the size and number of contracts taken and what would be a guide as to how many contracts to take ( or cfd contracts ) to take on a 500.00 account which would be sensible and how much risk per point on one contract so if I get stopped out for an 18 point loss on one one contract what are the calculations thanks .

    • S&P 500 TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: S&P 500 trading around resistance, have to see how things play out VIX to remain elevated, likely to see a big spike before significant low is in The market is bouncing right now, but that is all it looks like it is doing. While the S&P 500 is far off its record highs in a relatively short period of time, there has yet to be a major spike in fear that suggests a low is in. The VIX has been high as volatility has been elevated since the start of the year. We are in a regime of high levels of volatility where even moves to the high 30s in the VIX aren’t signaling any kind of real panic and capitulation that suggests a sustainable low is in. It appears that we will need to see a spike to 50-60+ before that happens, and that it is possible much higher. In the past that would have seemed almost unrealistic, but given how volatility itself has become a highly traded asset class, moves in vol are exasperated. The new normal for vol, if you will. The S&P 500 is trading around the Feb low where a bounce also developed earlier this month. The area around 4100 is the first important spot to look for the market to struggle at. We have yet to see a thorough testing, but looks likely to happen in the days ahead. Volatility and ceiling put in at that juncture could mark an important bounce high. But even if the market can recapture that level it doesn’t change the broader outlook, much more work will be needed to do that. With that said, a bounce shouldn’t develop much beyond 4300 if the market is in the process of weakening before another big leg lower.     S&P 500 DAILY CHART S&P 500 Chart by TradingView VIX DAILY CHART VIX Chart by TradingView Resources for Forex Traders Whether you are a new or experienced trader, we have several resources available to help you; indicator for tracking trader sentiment, quarterly trading forecasts, analytical and educational webinars held daily, trading guides to help you improve trading performance, and one specifically for those who are new to forex. ---Written by Paul Robinson, Market Analyst. 18 May 2022 | DailyFX
