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

    • Most Asian stock indices were little changed on Monday following gains in European and US markets last week as investors are refocusing their minds on interest rates with the US Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to hike its rates by 25 basis points and the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BoE) by 50 basis points this week. Major global stock indices are expected to end January higher amid slowing inflation, weakening economic data and mixed corporate earnings in the US which point towards a slower pace of central bank policy tightening. After slow start with German preliminary GDP and Spanish CPI data on Monday, US corporate giants such as Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta Platforms and Exxon Mobil are expected to report earnings later this week.
