MT4 mobile version leverage

Question

Hello,

I am just starting to  use MT4 and I am not able to find the leverage when executing an order. Is there any information on risk management for the MT4 mobile version? How to I calculate the leverage there or how  can see it before executing an order? 

Thanks.

Hi, IG use margin which is just another way to describe leverage and is the amount you must have in your account to place the trade, the size of the trade (number of contracts) determines how much of your available margin you need to execute.

The account margin is not on the base mt4 platform but is on the IG mt4 apps download when installed on the platform in the mini terminal and I think the trade terminal apps. It will tell how much margin is in use (open trades) and how much is left unused. If there is not sufficient free margin you will need to reduce the trade size for the trade to be accepted by IG.

I don't use mobile but presume the apps can be applied. See from the IG MT4 web page for the free apps pack add on.

    • This week is a crucial week for US indices I think especially end of the week. If we are going to see extreme Dow soon, the market will let us know.  The volatility is expected to pick up so money can probably be made in both directions with 1000+ points move again. I personally would not go long for a couple days. There are positions trapped right now going long from last week so I would guess some will be forced to endure some pain, unless they volunteer to take losses.
    • If it moves below $5k to maybe $4k again, it doesn't look like there is a great deal of support. Sure it can double in a short span of time but don't you think this is a very risky trade?
    • as explained earlier in the thread the cumulative risk reward ratio (auto calc'd on a spread sheet) plotted on the chart with the win rate is absolutely fool proof in revealing if a strategy is profitable of not. Also if you make any changes to the strategy the result will show up quickly in the stats so revealing whether the change was advantageous or not. Without hard statistics people have a habit of misleading themselves as to how well they and their strategy are really doing.
