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.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
