Hi all - sorry to report that the Apple Watch app has indeed gone. From a broad overview of our client base there seemed like there was insufficient use to justify the cost to develop and maintain the offering. 


I periodically collate all feedback submitted on IG Community, so if any other clients would like to feedback to us, please let me know.

Yeah really disappointed. In fact given I now have the Apple Watch 3 cellular and I was indeed going to ask if IG could develop the app so it could use cellular as stand alone from the phone. Now that would be fantastic as often I’m out on sporting activities without the phone. It’s the future. Cmonnnnnn.

Just bought an Apple Watch primarily to use IG. Very disappointed with this decision. Perhaps usage figures are tied to the number of Apple Watch users which are very much on the increase.

Please reinstate - surely IG can afford this and the number of people using (and understanding!) how to use their smartwatch is increasing exponentially. This has to be part of the future!

Considering how much faster and more responsive the apple watch series 3 is vs previous generations, I would be much more likely to use the IG watch app now than I would have been when I had the original apple watch, so it's disappointing to see that this has been removed.

Absolutely agree! With the iOS environment being so diverse, ever evolving and so streamline with it’s devices, the IG app really should have kept with the times of Apple’s and even Samsung’s evolution. 

Yes it would need resources to back it, but if so many smaller companies can accommodate for the cross over of platforms, IG really should too. Especially when you look into their financials. 

I have given feedback on this, and really insist a survey is done to see the demand of a great iOS IG watch app.

End of the day it’s all about the Client’s experience!

have a great day all!

Yeh could do with better stability, same as the app itself. Has been crashing a lot. I’m going to make a post on this but on the iphone app on a chart before you could double tap the screen and swipe up simultaneously, and it would zoom in like a lil magnifying glass. Was very helpful with fib extensions retracements and general accuracy of all drawings. Why has this function stopped working?

Hey, I've spoken to our developers and they said due to low demand there's no project ongoing for the Apple Watch app return.

I will however bring this up in a meeting with your comment to show there is demand for the app. Hopefully it's something that can be changed for the future. 

I also think we really need IG on iwatch as well!

    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™ 
    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco
