Leverage on retail accounts


Juanpk

Question

Hi everyone, I'm Juan and I've been looking to open an account with IG. One of the questions I have is what leverage is offered to retail accounts since I've seen some places saying it's 30:1, others say 50:1 but in the mt4 demo account it appears to have a 200:1 leverage. This is obviously a problem because if you get used to trade on a mt4 demos with 200:1 leverage and then open an account which provides only 50:1 is gonna change quite a lot of the trading style.

Thanks in advance

Hi @Juanpk,

Our margin requirements are available on https://www.ig.com/uk/cfd-trading

You can find the margin requirement on the IG platform in the "info" tab :

IG MT4 account will have the same margin requirements.

I hope that it help.

All the best - Arvin

    • Hi and thanks for your reply. This is not encouraging trading certain currency pairs. I am wary of CHF because of this. Isn't this something that does not encourage trading these pairs? Is there a way around it?
