The maximum amount you can invest in a single trade differs per product.
For example, in the case of 'stocks' the maximum is usually £10.000. This means: If you open a position for £2.000 with a Multiplier of x5, this equals this maximum of £10.000 (5x 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 €|
*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 - 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 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?)!
