let me see if i understand. if there are 600 people that already put 10 $ for expiry at 10.52 am (just giving a random number). my 10 $ stake will be rejected?
According to what he told me it's this (but only for the Binary Options section with longer time frames of 15, 30 & 45 min expiration):
If you wanna enter Calls/ Puts of EURUSD at 11:30 for an expiration at 11:45 you will only get about a total of 800-1000 worth (in whatever currency you trade) Calls/ Puts.
Normally you can always get that amount but according to what he told me if many IQ Option traders get the same asset & expiration time and already bought up the 6K allocated amount by IQ Option then you won't get much or anything.
So far I've always been able to get a max of about 800-1000 in time-frames & assets. Few times I could only get 80-100 or 200 max.
Either way this is really stupid. If in future there are many more traders on their platform and all trade the same asset/ expiration time the shared 6K allocated by IQ is used up fast. I don't know how they can do this, makes no sense.
As a trader you should be able to get as much of a size as you want as long as you have enough money in the account.
I can understand if there'd be a limit of 10K per time-frame. Some brokers have a limit of that. Otherwise it's just really frustrating with such limitations.
