We've added this blog so community members can have their say on projects we're looking to add in the future. Your vote will help us determine what our project teams work on to shape the future of IG.  

Please have a look at all of the ideas below before voting. If you have time we would also appreciate you leaving any feedback positive or negative about the ideas, in the comment section. 

1. Live Streamed Calendar Events

• Access to live streams of important economic and market announcements – accessed via the economic calendar

• IG will provide streams from major central bank announcements, major company earnings calls and other important company events (e.g. product announcements)

• You’ll be able to set reminders and alerts from these from the economic calendar, and then watch them in a window while interacting with the rest of the platform




2. Personalised Notifications

• A service that provides you with personalised push notifications based on your trading activity and interaction with IG. These will cover:

• Trade analytics insights

• Recommendations for IG Academy courses based on your recent activity

What other notifications would you like here?

• This feature builds on current automatic personalised notifications about major movements in the markets you’re most interested in

• How would you like these to be delivered?



3. Personalised workspace 

What is it?

The personalised workspace will give you the option for IG to pre-populate your workspace and watchlists depending on your interests. We’ll base this on the assets and products you’re interested in

What kind of things can I use it for?

• The personalised workspace will help you to:

• Stay on top of the markets you’ve interacted most with

• Reduce workspace clutter by deprioritising things you haven’t looked at for a while

What else would you like from a personalised workspace?



4. IG Academy walkthroughs

What is it?

• Currently IG Academy courses are self contained – and use text and diagrams to explain theoretical trading concepts

• IG Academy Walkthroughs will demonstrate how practical concepts work using our platform



5. Ask IG ... 

What is it?

• A range of IG services, accessible through voice channels. You’ll be able to access Ask IG through your preferred smart speaker (e.g. Google Home, Alexa), through the voice function or your phone (e.g. Siri) or through the IG app

What kind of things can I use it for?

• You’ll be able to use IG to:

• Answer questions about your account and open positions

• Ask questions about the wider markets

What else would you like to use Ask IG for?



As mentioned earlier in the post, if you have any feedback on any of these or if you want to tell us answers to any of the bolded questions please do so in the comment sections. This post will be open until 28th February 2020, 23:59, and the information we get from it is being incorporated when deciding on our next project. 

Thanks everyone for getting involved!
