Is this a Stocks and Shares broker

Yes, though it mainly concentrates on derivatives, so you might find it more limited than a broker concentrating on shares (no DRIP etc.) 

I can't find a decent one, another one where I have an account is so abysmal, it defies belief they exist

All I am trying to do is continue investing, but my other broker that I have a steady account is merging and charging £10 per month just for having an account

It depends what you want, the lack of flashy options doesn't bother me overly much, and I've never really had any problem doing what I wanted to do. Dividends have occasionally been a bit tardy to come through, but they've always appeared eventually. However, if customer service is important to you, I really can't recommend IG. Fortunately, I've never needed their help, but a short look through these forums will reveal a lot of people that have major trouble getting a response to their queries .

Overall, short of the free services there won't be many that are cheaper than IG. The service is basic, but it does what's it's supposed to. I was somewhat concerned over IG's handling of the latest GME/AMC shenanigans, but to be fair to IG that may well be down to my own (possibly unrealistic) expectations of how these situations should be handled. There has been some problems with the platform over the last few days, but again such issues are less critical to share investors than they are to CFD/SB traders.

    • Gold Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Likely Double Zigzag Position -Wave 4 Direction - Wave 4 is still in play Details - Gold count adjusted to fit the sideways structure emerging for wave 4. The structure still supports further rallies. Gold has remained in a sideways range since the decline on April 12th, 2024. Despite this consolidation, the metal is poised for more gains and potentially a fresh all-time high. Gold is in a long-term bullish trend, with no significant bearish correction expected until the impulse cycle from September 2023 completes.   Daily Chart Analysis: Gold prices have been largely bullish, with a cycle degree impulse wave III emerging from 1810.5 in September 2023. Currently, the price is in a minor degree wave 4, which initially appeared to be a zigzag structure. However, the sustained sideways price action suggests this is a triangle structure for wave 4. Before the eventual breakout to the upside, Gold might make one more leg lower within the range. The goal now is wave 5.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of the emerging triangle structure, which is currently on the fourth leg - wave d (circled). Wave e (circled) should follow, but it should stay above 2286 to avoid invalidating the triangle structure. Thus, the invalidation level for this setup is 2286. Provided the price remains above that level, the potential for more upside is far greater. Wave 5 should reach at least the 2500 key psychological level.   Summary: Gold has been in a sideways range since the decline on April 12th, 2024, but is expected to make further gains and potentially reach a new all-time high. The long-term trend is bullish, with no significant bearish correction expected until the impulse cycle from September 2023 ends. On the daily chart, Gold is in a cycle degree impulse wave III from 1810.5, with the current minor degree wave 4 forming a triangle structure.   On the H4 chart, wave d (circled) of the triangle is in progress, with wave e (circled) expected next. The triangle structure remains valid as long as the price stays above 2286. If this level holds, the potential for more upside increases, with wave 5 likely to reach at least the 2500 level.

    • AVY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Avery Dennison Corp., (AVY) Daily Chart AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Motive POSITION: Wave {iii} of 5.   DIRECTION: Upside in wave {iii}. DETAILS: Looking for upside into wave 5, equality of 5 vs. 3 which in this case will stand as invalidation level, as wave 3 is currently shorter than 1, stands at 250$.     AVY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Avery Dennison Corp., (AVY) 4Hr Chart AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Motive POSITION: Wave (ii) of {iii}.   DIRECTION: Upside {iii}. DETAILS: Looking for minute wave {iii} to start unfolding, otherwise we could be in either a top in place, or else we could be forming an ending diagonal in wave 5.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Avery Dennison Corp. (AVY). This analysis provides an in-depth look at AVY's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on AVY's market behavior.   * AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Avery Dennison Corp. (AVY), we observe an impulsive trend pattern characterized by a motive structure. AVY is currently positioned in wave {iii} of 5, indicating a continuation higher within this wave sequence. The target level for the upside movement into wave 5 is the equality of wave 5 vs. wave 3, which stands at the $250 level. This target also acts as the invalidation level, as wave 3 is currently shorter than wave 1. Traders should monitor this level closely as it provides a critical threshold for potential wave completion and validation of the current wave structure.   * AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, AVY continues to follow an impulsive trend mode within a motive structure, specifically in wave (ii) of {iii}. The current analysis suggests an anticipated unfolding of minute wave {iii}, which would indicate further upside potential. However, if this wave does not start unfolding as expected, it could suggest that a top might already be in place, or alternatively, we could be forming an ending diagonal in wave 5.   This potential scenario should be watched for confirmation or invalidation to adapt trading strategies accordingly.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • Asian shares are ending the week lower after recent rallies. Yesterday on Wall Street the Dow made gains while Nvidia and other tech names came under short-term pressure. The dollar continues to strengthen, pushing the Japanese yen close to levels last seen in April, which then provoked a currency intervention. European markets are expected to open flat, while US futures show slight gains. The MSCI Asia-Pacific index fell 0.6%, led by a pullback in technology stocks. Japan's inflation slowed in May, complicating the outlook for interest rate hikes. Currency markets saw the euro, sterling, and Swiss franc fall against the US dollar. Today is dominated by flash PMIs from around the globe, including Germany, the UK and the US.
