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 got as far as

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?

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance? Oct 4, 2022 | Full article on DailyFX James Stanley, Senior Strategist
    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
    • FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq breaking higher as bulls return to the fold The FTSE, DAX, and Nasdaq are on the rise, as improved market sentiment helps drive stocks higher.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  FTSE 100 rises back into key intraday resistance zone The FTSE 100 has enjoyed a relatively upbeat start to the week, with the index pushing higher after a decline into the 6763 support level (March low). This rebound has taken price up into the confluence of trendline and swing-high resistance, with the ability to break up through this point bringing greater confidence of a protracted period of upside. Should such a move come to fruition, we would be looking at a potential wider retracement of the sell-off from 7515. For now, keep a close eye out for a break higher from here to signal the beginning of a more positive period for this index. To the downside, a break below 6763 would be required to signal the beginning of another major leg lower. Source: ProRealTime DAX breaks through resistance as the bulls regain influence The DAX has been fighting back this week, with the gains seen yesterday bringing the index up through the first swing-high of 12138. The subsequent resistance level of 12322 has been broken overnight, with price now rising into the confluence of the 27 September high and July low of 12432. As such, we are building a more positive picture for the near-term, with a rise through 12432 bringing greater confidence that we will see the index retrace the wider sell-off from 13571. That coincides with the wider descending trendline that has been respected over the course of the year thus far. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq on the rise from key support The Nasdaq has been on the rise since the Monday gap lower, with the initial move below 11036 being swiftly recovered. That 11036 level represents the bottom established in June, with yesterday’s early decline bringing about a two-year low. However, we are now utilising this low as a potential area of support to push higher, with price having moved up through the 11298 swing-high. We have another notable swing-high at 11548 worth watching, with a break above that point signalling the beginning of a wider rebound for this index. To the downside, a move back below the recent low of 10887 would be required to bring about a renewed bearish short-term view for the index. Source: ProRealTime
