“Unreliable”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by Izayah87 (1 review written)

Platform constantly failing, several times at critical moments in the trade. Never lost money with other brokers as regularly as I have been with IG Index and this is enough to tell me that something is happening. I'll go back to using my old broker, not perfect but at least I know they are not scamming me… Read Full Review

“risk management Ok but what about mechanics?”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by IsabellaMcGuire475 (1 review written)

Whilst I found both presenters were good and kept the audience attention; as a newie to spread betting and CFD it was a bit disappointing. I appreciate that it being a Saturday the market was not open and live examples could not be shown. However, I really wanted to fully understand the actual mechanics and fully take in the various windows and decisions therein that need to be performed to ensure the philosophy being pushed via risk mangement was undertaken. During question time it was mainly… Read Full Review

“York Seminar”

Written on: 02/07/2014

Many thanks to all the IG team for putting on an informative session with fantastic refreshments to boot! I for one was able to take away a number of points to help with my trading plan moving forward - especially risk management! It is great to finally have a seminar on my doorstep and would love to see more in depth seminars such as technical analysis and maybe a training session on the more complex instruments. … Read Full Review

“Why I could not recommend a friend?”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by theoldwolf (1 review written)

I have been trading for a number of months(more then a year)and I am loosing a substantial amount of money. I acknowledge my own responsibility for my losses. I did some foolish trades. However, I was a beginner (maybe still am) and in retrospect I don't think that the level of support offered to beginners through the Web platform or via the IG training program is anywhere adequate. I don't see the risk warnings you are putting up on your publications going further then serving IG own needs… Read Full Review

The advisor delivered convincing and well paced advice throughout the session. I also valued the opportunity to network with other IG clients. This was my first IG seminar and, as a result of the positive experience, I have booked myself into three more. Regards, Bill… Read Full Review

“Platform not Novice Friendly”

Written on: 31/01/2014

I feel there are a lot of little questions a novice needs answers to which can be structured within the platform to enable them to make a decision. In its present form the platform is perhaps very good for someone who knows what they are doing, but not for a beginner. I have some suggestions and would be very happy to talk over with someone from your technical department… Read Full Review

The seminar help me to have a good understanding of your platform. I am looking forward to the more in-depth seminar sometime in march with Brenda Kelly i assume. Yours Sincerely, Tony Agosu… Read Full Review

“Market Update - A good call - My 1st”

Written on: 20/11/2013

The call was a good review of the key markets. Points for improvement: 1) I suspect that he trades mainly on trends and support/resistance levels. To give a better picture of how a market might change, I'd like to hear more about other factors which may move markets, e.g. likelihood of Fed tapering and China's economic reforms. 2) Slow down. There's a lot for the audience to take in especially when you're showing complicated charts. That's it. well done and was a good insight. I'll sign up for… Read Full Review

“Good p.m. , a little slow in the morning.”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by Lordbluecoat (1 review written)

Lets start with the negative to get it out of the way. There was an audience with a very wide range of experience in trading of any sort. Clearly some knew there onions and some were way out of their depth with the basics of spread betting. So the morning session got somewhat distracted by a whole load of questions regarding the very basics. I can live with that, but didn't learn anything. I thought there would be more on CFDs and the real differences to spread betting. On a more positive note… Read Full Review

“Technical Anaysis Strategies”

Written on: 31/10/2013 by WatIZIT (1 review written)

IG Technical Charts Seminar was the best display I've seen for a long time, it was done showing real time FX pairs. All questions answered clearly and she displayed great knowledge and displayed charting is very important along with economic news, not gossip. I have taken on board all what was recommended and have not lost any FX trades in 10 days, 20 % up. I trade 80% on my Apple IPad & Iphone, charting, news, insight and alerts function very well no failures, I now set 3 alerts on the 3rd… Read Full Review

“Dont trust them”

Written on: 21/10/2013

Will try and keep it brief. I started using IGIndex for their Prorealtime charts, to execute orders quickly from the chart. And after reading how to set up a pending order with a stop loss on the Prorealtime web site I phoned IGIndex to double check. Placed my 1st order which triggered in the OPPOSITE direction (triggering my stop loss as a buy position) so I closed the position for a £35 loss. Phoned IGIndex, and after speaking to about 3 employee was told that I had done something wrong… Read Full Review

“Trading Platform Seminar”

Written on: 15/10/2013

First things first - hospitality excellent, unexpected sandwiches, snacks and even wine! I simply trade shares and although I have an account with IG have not traded - probably wary and nervous. We were NOT sold to - everything explained clearly, caution was the key word. I got the feeling we could have spent several more hours going through the platform though, it seemed to cover everything and any combination. Overall impression was one of professionalism in both the company and the… Read Full Review

“Find another”

Written on: 06/10/2013

I have been a profitable trader for a number of years now. The only time in the last three years I have incurred regular losses was when using IG. I know somebody else who says the same. Unable to exit trades with messages such as 'this price is no longer available' and 'the market is rolling over' (?) appearing. Charts going blank when my day trade enters profit (IG blamed my brand new MacBook Pro and my fibre optic broadband for this even though I use much more CPU intensive software all day… Read Full Review

“Confirming your trading ideas”

Written on: 02/10/2013

Brendas webinar covers all the regular indexes, forex pairs and commodities in detail. For technical traders the charts are broken down and analysed in detail over varying time frames giving every opportunity to discover trading ranges and key levels. I have watched many webinars but Brendas is the only one done with the eyes of a trader. It is without doubt, the only webinar to watch where you can confirm your own trading ideas and analysis are heading in the right direction. Every week… Read Full Review
