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?

Thanks.

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.

Hi. I've been trying to set up an MT4 spread betting demo account, but live chat say you don't and never have offered this. Is this true? Is MT4 spread betting available on live accounts? Thanks.

Hi, for a spread bet account you must be UK or Ireland resident otherwise it's a cfd account.

see this page Open a Free MT4 Demo Account Today | IG UK (for UK or check for your own country equivalent page).

I am UK registered! Live chat just say you don't offer one (on MT4). I already have a spread betting account on the IG platform, but IG's bet sizing policy (and their refusal to offer micro lots on CFDs) makes it impossible to manage risk properly unless I deposit about £50k. IG have a great platform, but they clearly don't want anyone but the big fish using it. Thanks for replying.

Go to your My IG and click on 'add an account' you should see the option to open a mt4 cfd or mt4 spread bet account, click to open the spread bet account (you don't have to fund it) then go to the IG mt4 platform page to download mt4.

Once downloaded open mt4, in File > open an account   > select demo and the mt4 platform will auto set up a demo account.

I've already got the MT4 platform on my computer, so I should be able to log in from there, with any luck. Thanks for helping (though if your CS was on the ball you wouldn't have needed to 🙂
 
I'd like to be able to trade from my laptop as well as my PC. Do you know if there's an easy way to synchronise MT4 across devices?

Actually, I've mistakenly clicked the IG spread betting rather than the MT4, so I'm going to end up with two IG demos. I've got a couple of excess MT4 accounts as well that I've never managed to make work. Is there any way I can delete these? Annoyingly, the 'manage your accounts' page link I referred to in the previous post doesn't work - just throws up Javascript void(0).

Once they have your application they will send 2 emails, one with live account login and the other with live password.

With those entered into the mt4 platform the live account is activated and you can then go on to create a demo account.

From within the MT4 platform?

yes that's right, mt4 demo accounts are auto generated by the platform itself, no input from IG.

Well, that worked. Thanks very much. When I come to trade live, I presume I'll have to make an MT4 account from My IG and fund it that way too, since there's no transactions facility on MT4. Will that account also execute only on MT4?

    • Copper Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Zigzag Position -Wave 4 Direction - Wave 5 Details - It appears wave 4 has been completed but we need a confirmation above 4.686 with an impulse break. Otherwise, the price could make a minor corrective bounce below the confirmation level and falter further. Copper prices are reversing upward, recovering from the sell-off that began on May 20, 2024. The broader picture indicates that this sell-off is a correction within the larger bullish cycle that started in October 2023. The current recovery, which began on June 18, 2024, has the potential to rise further and possibly break the high from May 20, 2024.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, a bullish impulse wave has been developing since July 2022, when copper hit a low of $3.13. This impulse wave is currently in wave (3). Specifically, wave 3 of (3) concluded at $5.192, and wave 4 of (3) likely ended at the low on June 18. We can anticipate copper prices to recover into wave 5, completing wave (3) above $5.192 before the next pullback for wave (4) occurs. The invalidation level for this wave count is at $3.975.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, wave 4 appears as a double zigzag pattern. Wave a (circled) of 4 ended with an impulse structure, while wave c (circled) concluded with an ending diagonal pattern. A bullish confirmation would occur if the price breaches $4.686 with an impulse wave, indicating a strong likelihood of further recovery.   Alternative Scenario: Alternatively, the decline on the H4 chart could be interpreted as an impulse wave. If this is the case, the current bullish recovery remains valid. However, we would not see a breach of the $5.192 high before the price resumes its downward movement to break below $4.379. Therefore, in both scenarios, copper prices are expected to maintain their current recovery to at least the $4.69-$4.788 range in the near term.   Summary: Copper has been recovering from the sell-off that started on May 20, 2024, within the context of a larger bullish cycle that began in October 2023. On the daily chart, a bullish impulse wave has been forming since July 2022, with wave 3 of (3) completing at $5.192 and wave 4 of (3) likely concluding at the June 18 low. The price is expected to rise into wave 5, surpassing $5.192 before the next pullback for wave (4). The invalidation level for this wave count is at $3.975.   On the H4 chart, wave 4 is identified as a double zigzag, with wave a (circled) ending in an impulse and wave c (circled) in an ending diagonal. Bullish confirmation would be a break above $4.686 with an impulse wave, signaling further recovery.    Alternatively, if the decline is an impulse wave, the bullish recovery is still valid but without breaching $5.192 before dropping below $4.379. In either scenario, copper prices are likely to continue recovering to the $4.69-$4.788 range in the near term. Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!

The wave structure shows a clear alternation between a sideways wave {iv} and a sharp wave {ii}, which is a typical feature in Elliott Wave theory, suggesting healthy trend progression.

The recent correction in wave {iv} appears to have completed with a clear three-wave structure, indicating a possible resumption of the uptrend. The target for wave {v} is set at the equality of {v} vs. {i} at $254. Traders should look for confirmation of this upward movement as the wave {v} progresses towards the target level, which may present opportunities for entering long positions or adding to existing ones.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!

The dollar was steady as soft US retail sales data reinforced expectations of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates later this year. Markets are pricing in around 48 basis points of rate cuts by the Fed in 2024. Trading is expected to be muted due to the US markets being closed for the Juneteenth holiday on Wednesday.
