Mt4 increments.

Question

Hi - Are the small amounts that can be staked on MT4 on the demo account available on the live account? - I.E. the 0.01 to 0.05 amounts and would it be £'s or $'s? Also the minimum allowance for the proximity to market of a stop is much higher on MT4 than when trading on the IG chart - any ideas why? - Thanks - Phil

yes mt4 has micro sizes while the web based platform only goes down to mini but for some reason the demo mt4 uses pips while the mt4 live uses points so minimum bet on ftse is 10 pence per point, on the live that is 0.1 lots while on the demo it's 0.01 lots.

Usually the live mt4 has the same 'at market' min stop loss as the web based eg ftse ~ 5 points but on the demo it's set higher ~ 10 - 12.

Thanks very much for the info - very useful -  If I trade the US indices - will MT4 give the amounts in dollars or pounds? - Regards - Phil

In your mt4 account base currency, same as is for the web based platform.
