A bit let down by minimum’s

Hi all, 

I recently signed up to IG, i was feeling very impressed by the education section, the platform and the app, all seemed great and easy to use. However when I went to place my first trade and fund my account, I was extremely disappointed to see that the minimum deposit is £250, and also that the minimum trade value is £90. 

I’m a fairly big but not a huge investor, and I often like to test the waters of a stock by purchasing just a few shares to see how they perform before moving on to the bigger trades. Unfortunately with IG it doesn’t seem I can do this 

why do IG have these 250 and 90 pound minimums? When firms like Hargreaves Lansdown, Barclays etc do not, and are there any ways around it/any flexibility? Because I’m a big fan of everything else

Those mins aren’t bad IMO. Given the margin requirements etc it’s probably needed. What trade you looking to do? You can test in demo if required.

    • It is a consensus that Web3 wallets offer users whole control over their assets, ensure protection against unauthorized access, deliver seamless access to the growing world of blockchain services and more. However one quality that many participants are yet to tap fully is the earning opportunities they unlock. So in my exploration to access those juicy opportunities, I’ve discovered quite a few on Bitget wallet. Earned good rewards from the previous ZETA airdrop, and now in line with offering an unparalleled rewarding trading experience in Web3, Bitget Wallet has launched a massive airdrop for its ecosystem token BWB. Scheduled to last from March 18 to April 28, participants are invited to download Bitget Wallet app on their devices and claim BWB by participating in events through the app—the more tasks completed, the more points you gain. I just think that considering that 164m BWB points have already been issued over the period of 5 weeks, with one more week to go, no better time to hop on this opportunity than now especially with a welcome bonus of 50 $BWB points up for grabs!
    • this sounds like an amazing opportunity for users in the crypto world. It's important to approach futures trading competitions with caution, ensuring one's financial stability and a comprehensive understanding of the market. While the prizes are enticing, responsible trading remains the ultimate goal. Thanks for sharing such an intriguing event, I’ll definitely be taking a look at it ! 
    • As a newbie crypto trader, I dove headfirst into the world of futures trading on Bitget. Feeling overwhelmed by the charts and analysis, I discovered their copy trading platform. It was a revelation! Following the strategies of Bitget's elite traders, I learned the ropes while making real profits. Their expertise took the guesswork out of trading, allowing me to focus on understanding the market. This new Bitget Futures Elite Trader Selection Program is fantastic news. It incentivizes these top traders, giving them greater exposure, while also helping new users like myself identify proven performers. It's a win-win for everyone, and a huge step forward in making futures trading more accessible and successful for beginners. Thanks Bitget!
