IG Community - check out our new video below



A trading forum and help and support network for IG clients

The new IG Community has been live for a few weeks now and I just wanted to update all Community members on a couple of things, including a showcase of a brand new promotional video. This should be useful for those who haven't used Community before but what to know more - it's well worth a watch.

If you have any comments or questions regarding the new forum please let us know in the Comments section below. We're always looking to improve our offering based on what traders want - so give us a shout!

New features this month

  • Guests can now post without necessarily needing to be logged into Community. We want to make sure that all content is still relevant and interesting, so all guest posts will have to be approved by a moderator before being publicly visible. We want to make sure that quality over quantity remains, however the recent trial seems to have gone well and the Community is getting more relevant posts to add to discussion. If anyone has any opinion on this we'd love to hear from you so please feel free to add a comment below. 
  • We recently had a trial of the new 'poll' feature on a post relating to new cryptocurrencies. You can read that article on which crypto your most interested in here. Currently only moderators can post polls, however if you as a client would like to have this function, let us know! We're interested in who would use it.  
  • We're now in the top navigation bar on IG.com - it may not sound like a big change, but it allows you to get to the forum very quickly from anywhere on the IG.com environment (look for the global black navigation bar at the top). We're also looking at inclusion in MyIG - that should be live shortly. 
  • Finally, we have some stats for you which you may find interesting.

What is IG Community?

This purpose of this forum is for like-minded clients to share trade ideas and discuss market opportunities, ask questions, and provide help and support to others.

  • Learn strategies and trade ideas from experienced traders
  • Give tips to the Community and share your market knowledge
  • Perfect your trading by discussing ideas with others
  • Get the most out of IG and ask the Community anything regarding trading or IG

Anyone can browse the trading forum, but you will need to have an IG account to post or interact on Community and have your content published immediately. If you're new to the forumand looking for a first step maybe check out the forum, or have a once over of our Community tutorials


We migrated the old forum (and added some new features)

We have migrated over all the posts, likes, 'kudos' and private messages from the previous version of the forum, as well as integrated the Community login with the wider IG eco system so you can enjoy a seamless digital experience between the trading platform and forum. You should be able to see all your previously posted content under the same Community username as you originally had on the previous iteration. 

New content areas...

  • Blogs: We have three blogs which we will be updated periodically. 
    • Market News - Daily morning briefings, index dividend adjustments, and one off articles
    • IG Product Updates - A place to let you know about all the things we roll out
    • IG Community Blog - Competitions, 'Ask the Expert' series, and Community updates

...and a few new features.

  • Activity streams: If you're logged in you'll notice you can easily browse things such as 'unread' or 'followed' content. You can save individual search streams so they're available for the next time you log in 
  • Advanced search: An updated and intuitive search functionality
  • Leaderboard: The Leaderboard keeps track of the hottest content and best users each day based on reputation received. You'll increase your chances of getting on here if you post more, receive more likes, and help others
  • Community Profile: Your space in Community. Check yours out by clicking on your username in the top right hand corner (logged in users only).


Access IG Community - anytime, anywhere

IG Community will be up 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The easiest way to access IG Community is using the top right hand 'Help' drop down in the dealing platform, but you can also access via our mobile apps (look under the help and support section - try it now), or by simply going to community.ig.com. What do you like? What would you change if you had the chance? What new areas would you like to see? Let us know using the comments section below.

Does anyone know how to lower maximum funds in the demo account

Hi, you can't but you can just run it down with some blatant bad bets to the desired level or blow it completely, when you refund I think you can state how much.

can anyone explain how to move stop loss and limits on the chart during a trade other than changing the values in 'positions'?

    • Dividend Adjustments 18th October 2021 - 25th October 2021
      Please see the expected dividend adjustment figures for a number of our major indices for the week commencing 18th October 2021. These are projected dividends and likely to change. IG cannot be held responsible for any changes made.
      Dividends highlighted in red include a special dividend, therefore some or all of the amount will not be adjusted. Amount in brackets is the expected adjustment after special dividends excluded (where shown on major indices). Dividend adjustments due to be posted on a bank holiday will usually be posted on the previous working day. 

      If you have any queries or questions on this please let us know in the comments section below. For further information regarding dividend adjustments, and how they affect  your positions, please take a look at the video.

      NB: All dividend adjustments are forecasts and therefore speculative. A dividend adjustment is a <br style="background-color:#ffffff; color:#262629; font-size:14px; text-align:center">cash neutral adjustment on your account.
