Any idea why this is on MT4 especially with IG server, as ive seen others adding micro lot positions under other brokers on MT4, is this just due to MT4 or something else?

Hi @BOBCAT01,  on the spread betting mt4 platform 1.00 equates to £1/point so 0.10 is £0.10/point, 10 pence per point.

Hi @TnlVision,  couldn't say really except that, as you say all the others do it, so I guess IG would be at a disadvantage if they didn't.

Hi @Caseynotes

On demo account for MT4 I can order 0.01 lots. Is it not possible on live accounts?

Also what I wonder is the overnight charges on those types of lots. Is it the same formula*lot percentage?



Hi @Izzet,  the mt4 demo platform uses metatrader lot sizes which if I remember right goes down to 0.01 which equates to 10 pence per point but the live platform used IG lot sizes and only goes down to 0.10 but that still equates to the same 10 pence per point and so a £1.00 lot size is £1 per point on the live platform. A bit confusing I know.

Dear Sir, 

I wanted to open an account with ig trading to trade on forex, As i know Ig trading can also be done  in MT4 platform,my only doubt is any mt4 demo account from any service providers offering to trade on micro lots (0.01 lot) based on margin, but when i try to  trade micro lot on ag trading app it is how minimum of 1 contract have to be traded based on margin available. Now my question to comes down to 2 
1) can i trade on micro lot ( 0.01lot ) on IG trading application ? (as it is showing 1contract as mandatory minimum requirement) ( please find the attachment) 
2) can i trade on micro lot (0.01 lot ) on IG MT4 trading platform.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
