Minimum Lots

In general, for stocks traded on US stock exchanges the minimum lot equals 100 shares. Depending on the price of particular securities, the transaction amount can vary greatly. However, if you are interested in purchasing a lot of less than 100 shares, we recommend that you contact our specialists for further explanations on the possibility of carrying out such a transaction.

Options contracts on shares traded on US exchanges have a minimum lot of one contract, where one contract is the right to buy or sell 100 shares. This way, depending on the price parameters of the shares and, accordingly, the options, investors have the chance to manipulate these types of instruments when investing amounts even less than 1,000 USD.
