hi, I haven't traded for about 3 years due to business .A nyway I thought I would have another go and tried to place a controlled risk bet on the dow daily. my gs  was 30 points away from entery so I was risking  £30 .it the told me I needed to put up a margin of £1250, for a £30 bet . I confirmed this with ig them selfs and they said that was correct. so my question is are there any small traders left . I have about £10000 but it dose not seem any good

@juliangrainger,  you may have missed that the EU regulators severely slashed the amount of leverage brokers were allowed to offer non-professional clients. So the margin requirement is much increased as you've noticed, a major factor in the margin calculation is the price of the asset so the margin required for Dow and S&P is much larger than for Ftse and Dax for example.

    • When I started car shopping, I realized I knew nothing about checking out a used car’s past. In the past, I just looked at condition and price. However, a salesman showed me a detailed vehicle history report made by DIMO, a blockchain system tracking full data pulled from the car’s computers. I was amazed anyone could get such complete background details. While too pricey for me, this showed blockchain’s power to securely gather key info over time - from service to repairs to crashes. It made me recognize the need to evaluate history before buying.  DIMO builds thorough records to help buyers avoid “lemons”, accurately assess shape, check claims, get fair pricing, and feel confident around big investments. These histories even get passed to future owners, raising resale value. Where I once ignored backgrounds, now I know checking histories is key for informed used car buying. While test drives don’t tell the whole story, blockchain systems like DIMO allow transparency through permanent records. Understanding vehicle histories is vital for smart purchases.
    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
