I have been using a DEMO account for a while and I would like to progress to a Live CFD account.
My strategies use PRT Autotrading and I would like to know what IG determines to be "extremely low value" when they state what kind of account can use PRT without fees. My system is used on 15 min charts so the number of trades per month should not be a problem. However I will be using single contracts on EURUSD Mini so my positions will not be very big.
From the website:
How much does ProRealTime cost?
As an IG client, you get access to ProRealTime for free for your first month. Professional clients get free access for three months. Following that, you can continue to access PRT charts at no extra cost if you transact at least four times in a given month.
If you don't meet this requirement, or your trading activity is of extremely low value, then a £30 per month fee will apply on the last day of every calendar month.
Has anyone got any ideas please? I called them and I was told that non-professional users do not get free access but the web site states it is free if more that 4 trades per month and trading activity is not of "extremely low value"
