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.

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY on the back foot as support comes into play EUR/USD and GBP/USD consolidate after recent decline, while USD/JPY falls back towards key support in the wake of a BoJ rate decision.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 28 October 2021  EUR/USD consolidates around Fibonacci support EUR/USD has been consolidating around the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1.1595 over much of the week, with the price showing signs of a potential resurgence in the wake of Monday’s declines. The intraday trend remains bullish unless the price breaks below the $1.1572 swing low. With that in mind, it makes sense to look for another move higher until we see support break. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD breaks through support after recent uptrend GBP/USD has been on the rise of late, with the price moving back towards the crucial $1.3913 swing high. A break above that level is ultimately required to bring the wider bearish trend to an end. With that in mind, there is a chance of further downside given the move through $1.3742 yesterday. To the upside, a move back above $1.3829 would be required to bring the short-term bullish trend back into play. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY falling towards support after post-BoJ USD/JPY has continued to drift back towards the ¥113.41 support level despite a Bank of Japan (BoJ) rate decision that saw them keep rates steady and downgrade growth for this year. A dovish BoJ did little to stifle the yen, with the pair declining back towards ¥113.41 following a recent trendline break. That level also coincides with the 76.4% Fibonacci support level. Ultimately, we have a very clear bullish trend in play here and thus we would need to see ¥113.41 and ¥113.00 taken out for a more bearish short-term picture to come into play. Source: ProRealTime
