  1. Hi, I am using the API. I know where to find the minimum deal size needed to open a position (epic > dealingRules > minDealSize). For example, with CF.D.EURUSD.MAR.IP, it's 0.5 points. On the platform, through trial and error, I can see that I can, after having opened my position, increase or decrease it in increments of down to 0.5 + 0.01 points. I can submit a BUY order for e.g. 1.0 units and then a SELL order for 0.97 units and end up with 0.03 units left on my account. This 0.01 size is quite key to understand, but I cannot see it being displayed in the API anywhere. Does anyone know where to find it? I see a minStepDistance but that's 10 points... Best, Douglas
  2. Hi Anda, I don't feel like this answers the question - is auto-rolling cheaper or same price as manual rolling, again assuming they are happening at the same time? Also, what I'm getting from your answer is that manual rolling involves calling the desk and cannot be done online? Best, Douglas
  3. Hi, I'm wondering how pricing works for rolling of futures and forwards. I tried searching for this but couldn't find anything that answered the question. Firstly, do "roll" or "spread"-type orders exist on the IG platform? Can I execute a roll myself or am I forced to outright sell and then outright buy the next contract? Secondly, say, hypothetically, I had two futures positions on your platform. For one, I let it automatically roll me into the next month using the auto-roll. For the other, I execute a roll myself (again, can I actually do this or will it be outright sell + outright buy?). Which approach would lead to the lowest spreads and overall costs, assuming the two approaches are executed at the same time? Thanks in advance for any help!
