Minimum position size


Recommended Posts

Hi I'm looking at potentially starting trading with IG but I'd like to know what the minimum size for positions is. On the CFD account it seemed much higher than for the spread bet but even looking at the spread bet it still seems quite high unless I'm looking at the wrong numbers. Pretty much my question is, if I had an account with let's say £200, would I be able to even open positions? 

Thanks

Well, at the moment you need around 90 € margin to open a position in Gold, for example. So in general you would be able to, but you will be limited to very few markets.

However, for new accounts the minimum position size is reduced; this lasts about a month (I believe).
