MT4 Wont Fails to open positions with small stop losses



Hello, all


I have an issue regarding the margin requirements when trying to open positions in MT4. Usually I trade using Limit orders with small stop losses to trade, but with IG it seems that I am limited to the size of stop loss I am permitted to use given the pair I am trading.

With, for example, EURUSD I cannot place a limit order with an opening price and stop loss smaller than ~10 pips on the Demo account for MT4. And most interestingly, a trade that just barely does not open at a designated 1 lot size, does not also open at 0.01lots! But if that same risk margin changed to have a slightly bigger stop loss, the trades will open regardless of whether I am risking 0.01 lots or 1 lot.

To place the trades, there is an EA installed in my MT4 which calculated my risk for each of those trades, and it displays a margin requirement label at the bottom before I open the trade. But when the trade is able to execute, the margin calculations are way off compared to what it said in the EA, and thus I can only assume that it is some broker side margin calculation issue. I'd like to preface that the EA I have used in plenty of brokers before, and none had displayed the margin incorrectly before.


Is there a way to fix this? Am I connected to the incorrect IG server?

Also, how do you change the given leverage for the MT4 demo accounts? I'm stuck at 200 leverage.

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
