How large is one trade size?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I’m new to IG, I’m confused about the size of “trade size”, how large is one size if measured by USD?

Hi, it's going to depend on what you are trading, if you look at the top of the IG welcome page and click on 'Markets to trade' and select from the list there will be a link to product details as in the example below for commodities.

My advice is practice the demo account for about two years until you truly understand what you are doing, i trade full time, mainly on another good plateform, understanding size is important, google is your friend, use it

refering to SpreadBet?

the size is how much your bet is per market move (tick) .

try the demo account for free to get a feel for how the system works. Risking on a live account will cost you.

start small size (bet) and move up as you build strategy.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
