VIX stops

Question

hello why are the stops in VIX either 0.2 or then 1 ?

 

0.2 is too close to the bid offer but then you have to run much more risk otherwise 

 

why cant the trader decide to have a stop at 0.5 ?

 

why does IG care where the stop is (apart from trying to get it triggered asap)

Hi - the VIX has a minimum stop distance of 0.2, however if you wish to have your stop at 0.3, 0.4 or 0.5 and above (or any other increment to the 0.01) then you can, simply by typing in your desired stop level. Please have a look at the example below with an opening big of 17.03 and a stop 0.38 away at 16.65. 

 

If there are other functionalities of the trading platform you would like more information on, or explanations of our dealing practices, please don't hesitate to ask.

ha on this occasion the answer was good 

 

although not sure why the stops jumps from 0.2 to 1 when the arrows should move in increments of 0.1

 

it is still overall a rigged casino

How so? Doesn’t the vix price just pull the underlying future with an IG spread?
