Hi

 

I am a trading newbie, wondering if any one can tell me why the min trading size varies from one instrument to the other ?

0.5 in some and 1 in some ??

Hi @YomboSB

Welcome to IG Community. 

Different minimum sizes give different minimum exposures per market. There are different minimum exposures our desks are willing to take per market. This is purely based on the exposure we are willing to offer as the minimum for that market. For example, the standard minimum size you can take for FTSE 100 is 0.50 on a spread bet account. Using the current price of 7037, your exposure in the market would be 3 518.5 (0.5 x 7037). So that's the exposure size we are willing to offer our clients.

All the best, OfentseIG

I was wondering: is it possible to calculate (roughly at least) the minimum deal size given the recent market price or volume? I have a trading bot and need minDealSize to calculate the position size. Currently  I store min. deal size values that I scraped from IG API in a database, but I am not sure if it is a good idea as I do not know whether midDealSize values are fixed and constant or updated by IG depending on price factors.

Hi @spiff

Please note that these are updated by IG according to price factors,  therefore you  can't use any data to predict the change.  IG decides on it's own,  what the mini deal  size is. You can find the minimum deal size on the deal ticket.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
