Is IG considering a social trading platform so people can follow and copy winning traders? Would like to see something like this implemented to encourage profitability among traders.

There was a big surge in this about 5 years ago with many brokers but quickly ran into trouble because of broker conflict of interest. They were rewarding some traders to encourage other traders to place trades which was fine if everyone was winning but with each change in market cycle winners became losers and the complaints to the regulators started pouring in. Most brokers abandoned the scheme fairly quickly.

There is a way of copying successful traders, it's called buying a tracker fund or an ETF.
