Min sized trade on Dow.


Recommended Posts

What is the smallest size trade I could place on the Dow please?

What margin/deposit would one need to trade such small size ?

(Could you show a reply/example in actual pounds as opposed to percentage please)

 

Thanks in advance.

@Turnip230248,  so if you are trading with IG you are trading IG's contracts, I'm not sure IG offer access to the CM exchange even on the DMA platform (you could check). 

So you would probably need a US broker that offered trades in cme's micro lots. When the US regulator brought in rules to save the poor retail client they not only lowered leverage (not as much as esma) but also brought in minimum account deposits for different account types that range from $10,000 upwards to 25K and I suspect that would still apply whether you were trading micro lots or not or reside in the US or not.

But the Europe branch is based in Cyprus and comes under the Cyprus regulator which though may have improved just lately have a terrible reputation for protecting clients. It was only a few years ago Chinese clients hired a plane to go to Cyprus to demonstrate on mass outside the Cysec offices.
