Is it true that for retail client the minimum trade size for EUR/USD pair is 0.1 (10 000) or mini lot if web trading platform is used and 0.01 (1 000) or micro lot if MT4 platform is used?

Hi @AlmostRich,

IG offers two types of lots for retail clients for EUR/USD, standard 100 000 and Mini 10 000.

Ok, thank you! So no micro lots in any of trading platforms? And so - how would introduction programme affect me - as I understand it gives me 31 day period of diminished trading - 25% size of normal trading sizes. Would it give me an option to trade 25% of mini lot (2 500)?

Hi @AlmostRich

Just to correct the previous post. 

We do offer micro-lots, only on MT4. On IG platforms you can only trade standard or mini lots. Yes the introduction programme will allow you to trade 25% of normal trading sizes. However this is only for trades that are placed through the IG platform. Please see the following links to read more on this:



All the best,

Re Minimum  Trade size 

Could you please elaborate and give an example  of min trade size in actual money terms trading per point , until recently a min trade size per point used to be ranging from Euro 1.00   per movement on Oil   and still is on demo accounts   how much would this change on real live accounts after 31 days ? on  oil or index trading like the Dax , Gold

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
