What are the benefits of reduced minimums deal sizes?

Trade in a reduced-risk environment

Start building your confidence trading on live markets for your first 14 days

Speculate with real capital

Unlike a demo account, you’ll have the opportunity to make real profits (or losses)

What are reduced minimums?

Reduced minimum deal or trade sizes, or reduced commission rates for CFD shares, enable you to take a position at 50% of the size that we normally require. This means they are a great way to start trading, or an ideal next step if you’ve been perfecting your trading skills on our demo account. Although you’ll be trading on live markets, you’ll be able to lessen your exposure, and so reduce your risk.

This offering is available for the entirety of your first 14 days trading from a live CFD account, across all of our markets.

Our prices are already competitive, but our reduced minimum deal sizes will help you keep costs down while you build your confidence trading live.
