Hi, min position size should be  0.1 as is in the link below, is there any message pop up?

Yes it says "off quotes", further info I am trading from my mobile phone on my mt4 account and I opened a 0.10 post on as well as 0.50 and it still gives me an off quote message 

ok, that message usually refers to a connection problem;

check your mobile connection,

also check the mt4 connection rate and number of dropouts (see  pic 1 bottom right corner of mt4), the dropouts number should be only around 2 (the number after the / ) and the rate should be high (thousands).

Check the IG server, in mt4 'File' > 'Open an account' pic 2

also you can click on the connection rate box and choose a different data center.

Let us know how you got on.

How do I check this from my mobile phone ,I'm not trading from a pc ,also I traded 2 currency pairs with 0.05 and 0.01 and they worked so I doubt it's my connection,I'm only having trouble opening 0.10 positions with indicies specifically the spx500 and nas100

not sure, your currency trades must have been on demo as the live account only goes as low as 0.1 for both currencies and indices so I still think you need to look at the live feed connection.

    • Hi, sorry to be too late but a reminder that for when the market moves against your week day position over the weekend consider a hedging position in the weekend market in the opposite direction to your weekday trade so that overall your PnL remains fixed.
    • I don’t think you can as the market is closed - I’ve researched this and if “slippage” occurs and you have a “normal stop loss” which happens to be lower than opening price then you get executed at opening price, (which I guess is 11pm tonight)  apparently you need to select “guaranteed stop loss” to allow yourself to guarantee a stop at your chosen price.  fingers crossed. I’m in too deep really, it’s been an awful weekend worrying!!🤦🏼
    • Hi Rob, pretty sure you can still change your stop loss or take it off entirely, if that was something you wanted to do, just go into positions and adjust or if you wanted to take off you delete and press return, good luck with whatever you decide
