The maximum size a single trade may have differs per product.
For example, in the case of 'Stocks' the maximum is usually 10,000 GBP (or €) . This means: If you open a position for 2,000 GBP with a Multiplier of x5, this equals this maximum of 10,000 GBP (5 x 2.000 = 10.000).
However, other products can have different limits.
See below an overview with the maximum trade size per product:
Maximum trade size (notional value)
|Indices (Asian)||75.000 GBP|
*There maybe some exceptions due to low liquidity of certain stocks
Please keep in mind:
- The absolute amount you can invest is dependent on the amount of money that is in your BUX X Account.
You also cannot put your whole account into one trade only (this rule applies to account values exceeding 500 GBP - Why? Have a read here).
- A part of your total account value is reserved (called ring fenced). This amount is not available for trading as it functions as a back-up for possible fees.
Tip: If you want to invest more money in a certain Stock or product, you can always open more than one position. You could for example open 2 positions of 10,000 GBP in the same stock.
Reminder: You can never lose more on a trade than your invested amount (see: why can I never lose more than I invest?)!
