New user - minimum spread bet size increased after one month?


Guest pripet324

Question

Guest pripet324

Hello. I am a new user having started a month ago using the spread betting platform.

Yesterday I noted that the minimum stakes that I can place have increased generally by a factor of around 4-5.

For example, Goldman Sachs used to allow me to trade at £0.01p a point, but now the minimum is £0.05p. I have noted a similar pattern on other shares, always around the 4-5x increase in minimum stake from before.

Is this something that happens automatically after a period of time (as above, I've been using the platform for a month) or is there another cause?

Hey @pripet324, thanks for you post. 

When you first start up on spread betting you do get 75% reduction in the bet size for the 1st week, the 2nd week it's 50%, the third week you get 25% off the bet size then on the 4th week it's the normal full bet size. 

On CFD it will be 50% for a week then normal bet size. 

We have reduced sizes so clients can try smaller sizes and practice. 

I hope this helps. :)

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
