Scrapping the minimum deposit of £100

I used to trade with IG a lot and also introduced clients to you, but since you have made numerous negative changes I stopped trading with your company.  One of these negative changes was the introduction of a minimum deposit of £100 by debit or credit card when funding ones account.


I would like IG to scrap this and if a minimum is necessary make it £10 and no more than that.  Ex. if a trade I am wanting to take only needs £40 margin - I am being forced to fund my account with a £100 and then it will take 3 days just to have the £60 go back to my bank account.


As you are now making some very positive changes (reduced spreads on forex and gold and free guaranteed stops) then if you scrap the minimum deposit I would probably come back to trading with you at lease for some instruments.

Hi , thanks for your post.


Firstly, it's great to hear that you feel we have made some positive changes recently! All feedback is welcome of course, so I'm happy to address your concerns too regarding the minimum deposit.


The minimum amount of £100 is in line with our minimum bet sizes and margin requirements for trades.  For example, although you may only need to put down £50 to open a trade, you will still always need separate available funds to cover any running losses, as margin funds cannot be used for this.  It is therefore prudent to maintain a good balance of available funds, as if the market moves quickly against you and this balance becomes negative, your positions are at risk of being closed out.  The minimum of £100 ensures you have at least some available funds to protect you from this.


I hope that clarifies our minimum account deposit, but please let us know if you have any more queries!

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
