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 .

    • As the The Guardian report shows: "Scientists who drew up the key World Health Organisation guidelines advising governments to stockpile drugs in the event of a flu pandemic had previously been paid by drug companies which stood to profit, according to a report out today." Big pharmas are laughing all the way  to the bank for free trillions they will earn and have been exempt from any law cases should any drug be a problem, especially by the normal bypass of the trial phases to proof of concept. What ever happened to our parents and grandparents generations who used the HEAD steam by covering the head by a towel with the face breath hot air to kill off bacteria or viruses  that would be in the nose, throat or chest. It is done for 15-30 minutes per day. It handles any cold or flu or other similar conditions, and it is still used in various parts of the world. But ofcourse there is no profit in that so why encourage it, uhh? The media loves sensationalism, exaggerating, generalising and negative bias when it need not be per facts. This is the norm for most media types. They know that people react to them and naively accept what they say, or should i say that is how it use to be. But more and more people are waking up to this type of hype used by PR departments of Pharmas and even the Financial industries. So they will continue these habits until the public turns against it one day. Whatever happened to the objective reporting and investigating that would take place before reporting of decades ago, without much of the above bad habits? Or is there other motives that we have not considered?

This time to vilify the unvaxxed for the vaxxed covid cases, completely fake and they must know it.       Even bias factcheckers can't pretend that's true.                 The escape variants are created in the vaxxed and are initially transmitted by the vaxxed.  COVID Outbreak On US Cruise Ship Despite Fully Vaxxed Passengers COVID Outbreak On US Cruise Ship Despite Fully Vaxxed Passengers | ZeroHedge
