VIX contract size


cate

Question

Hi,

Until yesterday, the minimum size for trading the VIX via either the Volatility Index £1 or Volatility Index 1 euro was one contract. But this morning I found the minimum size was 100 contracts. Is this a permanent change? And is there anywhere we can see in advance when these changes are being planned?

Thanks,

Cate

Hi @cate,

Starting from now, the minimum will be 100. The previous minimum of 1 was considered too small and has now been increased. 

All the best,

Thanks @AshishIG

Two questions:

1. Is there anywhere IG announce that they're planning to make these changes? It would be nice to know in advance when a big change like this is coming.

I had a strategy that depended on being able to trade lots of small VIX positions, so that I can keep averaging my position as spot moves. It's not a big deal this time, but I'm worried if I'm expecting to use an instrument to hedge and suddenly without warning it might become much more expensive to trade. 

2. Is there any risk that IG will close out the positions I currently hold based on the old position sizes? Or does the new size limit only apply to new positions that get opened?

Thanks,

Cate

That's the magic of Game-Fi projects, where the boundaries between gaming and finance blur, creating an immersive universe where players are not just participants but pioneers of a new era. In the midst of this gaming revolution, there's a project that's been making waves for all the right reasons: NADA Protocol $NADA. Recently, I found myself diving deep into the realm of emerging Game-Fi projects, and NADA caught my eye like a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. It's more than just another token; it's a symbol of possibility, offering gamers a glimpse into a future where their passion translates into tangible rewards. Let me take you on a journey through the world of NADA Protocol, where innovation meets excitement, and where every move you make could be the key to unlocking a world of endless possibilities. 1. Rewards Beyond Imagination: NADA Protocol isn't just another token; it's a ticket to a world where every move, every triumph, is rewarded.

With plans to integrate into future games, early adopters of the native token stand to reap massive rewards down the line. 3. Korean Innovation: Behind the scenes, NADA is powered by none other than NADA Digital Co., Ltd., a powerhouse in the Korean gaming industry. With a proven track record and global recognition, NADA Digital Co., Ltd. brings a level of expertise and reliability that sets NADA apart from the competition. 4. Global Validation: It's one thing to dream big, but NADA has the track record to back it up. With a presence in the global market and validation from players worldwide, NADA isn't just a promising project – it's a force to be reckoned with. 5. Exchange Expansion: The anticipation builds as NADA gears up for listing on top exchanges like Bitget. With increased accessibility and liquidity, NADA is poised to make waves in the Game-Fi space, captivating audiences and investors alike.  What are your thoughts, let's discuss?
