Admirals reduces minimum trade sizes for CFDs on major indices
Online trading company Admirals announces that its most popular cash index CFDs have become even more accessible and fit for strategies that required precise position sizing.
In Trade.MT5 and Zero.MT5 accounts, Admirals’ smallest supported transaction sizes as well as transaction size increment steps have changed for:
- DAX40 Index CFD (platform symbols: [DAX40], [DAX40]-Z)
- Dow Jones Index CFD ([DJI30], [DJI30]-Z)

The new minimum lot for DAX40 and DJI30 Indices is 0.01 (before 0.1) and for NQ100 is 0.02 (before 0.1). The lot size increase step has changed to 0.01 for all instruments referred to above.
In addition, every week, clients of the broker now have two more hours in total to trade the Europe’s economic bellwether DAX40 index, and over one hour per week to trade each of major USA indices. Admirals’ updated hours now cover late evening time periods when there used to be a break in trading.
