  1. I've tried to calculate margins since I have moved over the MT4. On the IG website (international) the margin on the Dax is currently 620 pounds. On MT4 with the size being 0.01, the margin is 138 pounds. I don't know how that I calculated.
  2. I know I'm going on about this, but both LIVE & DEMO is on 1 Pound each.
  3. I wasn't expecting IG to get back to me soon. 10min later and I'm logged in. Thank you all.
  4. Thank you for the help thus far. I opened the MT4 account 3 months ago, never used it. How will I be able to retrieve it if I do not have the 2nd email?
  5. I only find the email with the account name (5 digits) How can reset or retrieve my password?
  6. LIVE & Demo (in above example) is on 1 pound Cash. Even after the first month with the increased margin, the DEMO account is still 4x the LIVE's required margin.
  7. When is IG moving up to MT5? All other brokers I use to work with is on MT5.
  8. I've been trying for the last 2 hours to get my MT4 IG account password. Either I'm going crazy or this is not a user friendly approach at all.
  9. Will I be required to fund my IG Meta Trader Account seperatly? Can I trade on the MT account via a browser or only on the trading platform?
  10. Why is the minimum contracts on let's call it the Wall Street capped at 0.50 or on the Germany 30 Cash at 1? This has significant effects on the minimum margin required. I know of traders that trades with less that 600 pounds (due to currency conversion from South Africa for instance).
  11. This has been bothering me as well. LIVE - Wall Street (1Pound) - Spread 3.6 - Contracts 0.5 - Margin - 656 pounds DEMO - Wall Street (1Pound) - Spread 3.6 - Contracts 2 - Margin - 2622 pounds Is this to force demo traders to see increased profits when the indices moves in their favor - eager to open a LIVE account? If it moves against them you can easily just "deposit" fake money again.
  12. Is it possible to have to different indices on one chart, not next to each other, but on top of each other.
  13. @TrendFollower Are you referring to Oil under "Options" or under "Commodities" it self? Mine looks as follows
