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.

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.

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
