Hi Dan,

Great to get on board. Thanks for the invite.

I have been with IG for over 10 years and have increased my activity recently. I have traded CFD's on shares in Australia, USA and Europe; oil, gold, wall street index, currencies and binaries. I find the financial markets very exciting.

I have referred many people including a HNW account. This gave me exclusive invitations to IG events for large account holders. I understand you can't offer those perks to everyone but I think the seminars could be available to be streamed to all clients. It would be no extra cost to you and a huge benefit to all.

Hi Dan

i'm an asian female with full time job. I'v had an IG account for a few years now but still feel like a novice so I don't trade very often. I would very much welcome some tips on trading forex from experienced members. Thanks

I'm Jay and I'm practicing using the demo account and the trading signals IG offer. Have any of you used them and whats your results if you have?


I've been trying to learn to trade for a while now and am yet to find that 'guru' to point me in the right direction!


Thanks all and good luck!

Hi I'm Dan, I'm interested in equities, and opened an ISA too. I have a couple of positions, one is doing well, one isn't. I'm a newbie and keen to learn more about technical analysis. I mostly use the iPhone app, so it's great to see this new community feature.

The name's Dave, and thanks for your warm welcome. They weren't lying about how good the IG platform was, it's amazing.

I'm still a fairly inexperienced trader, and I work full-time. SO far I've had positions in various Indices, FTSE Stocks various tech stocks, UK and international.


Pleased to meet you all.

Hello everyone!! I am Storm07 and this is my very first time venturing into trading. It's still unknown territory for me and I haven't even placed my first bet yet! I have to say that I am very nervous and excited at the same time. I'm looking forward to lots of new learning experiences, torments and exhilaration!! I feel like I'm back at uni again . It would have been great if we were able to transfer funds via PayPal. I'm using my iPad but I don't get the mobile option of funding my account. I just spent hours going through as much literature as I can for today to get acquainted with spread betting (though I still feel like I'm clueless!). I moved from the UK recently and I am looking forward to start something that could potentially be a great source of income. All the very best everyone!!

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
