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.

    • In the decentralized future, collaboration is key. Builders shaping the next wave of gaming, entertainment, finance, and community spaces require blockchain infrastructure that's scalable, cost-effective, and adaptable. They seek an ecosystem where creativity thrives, and support is abundant. This is where SAGA comes in. With its recent listing on Bitget exchange, its native token is gaining significant traction, signaling growing interest in SAGA's mission to empower Web3 builders.
    • The cryptocurrency industry has undergone substantial growth in recent years, largely fueled by centralized exchanges. However, with this growth comes a responsibility to adhere to regulatory standards. Recent revelations have cast a shadow over BingX, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange, as it has been found to be facilitating transactions for Iranian users in defiance of US sanctions. This blatant disregard for regulatory prohibitions, which are in place to combat terrorist financing and illicit arms procurement through crypto channels, raises serious ethical questions. The decision by BingX to engage with Iranian clients despite the associated risks and legal constraints has sparked concerns about the judgement of its management team. Of particular concern is the lax enforcement of Know Your Customer (KYC) verification, allowing users to withdraw significant sums without proper identity authentication. Inevitably, regulatory bodies such as the DOJ and SEC will seek explanations from BingX regarding these breaches. The repercussions of such inquiries are likely to be severe, with users already expressing alarm and initiating mass withdrawals. Beyond regulatory scrutiny, BingX's actions threaten its reputation and long-term viability. By flouting US sanctions and disregarding regulatory compliance, the exchange risks damaging its integrity and credibility. As BingX navigates this ethical quagmire, the extent of the fallout remains uncertain. What are your thoughts on the potential implications of these breaches for the exchange?
