Alerts are great for keeping you up to date with broad market movements and macroeconomic news events. To make sure you receive the alert on mobile or via email requires an opt-in setting within MyIG, along with settings on your mobile (Push only). 

 

Turning on notifications in MyIG

When you’re logged in to your IG account go to your Communication Preferences in MyIG. On the 'Prices & Dealings' tab make sure you have turned on your Email and Push notification options. You can also look through other areas of the Communication Preferences section to make sure you're signed up to Newsletters and other notification areas.

Turning on notifications on iOS (Apple iPhone / iPad etc)

In your iOS settings, navigate to the Notifications section and make sure you have ‘allowed’ notifications. If you don’t turn on notifications, then you won’t be able to receive push Alerts.

Turning on notifications on Android

In the Android settings section of your mobile device click on ‘Notifications’ and scroll to the ‘IG Trading’ application. You can turn notifications on here along with other more granular notification options.

...and that's it!

You should now be ready to receive Price, Indicator and Economic alerts which you have signed up for.
