Hi  What about trying the Australian website?  Maybe that is set up for HK Apple?

Apologies if this is obvious and you've already tried it.  I can't talk from experience as I don't use Apple stuff.

Hi - ok - someone else on here or from IG should be able to help you out in the next few hours.  It is a bit odd.

Hi , this is because of an Apple App Store policy change meaning we are unable to offer our app in your country.

 

We are working on a browser based mobile app which will allow you to trade on mobile, which should be released in coming months.

 

In the meantime you would need to use an Android device or if you launch our new platform via Safari (or most browsers) on iPad this should work. Keep in mind it is meant to be used on desktop though so isn't optimised for mobile.

 

Cheers,

 

Will

hello,

mobile trading apps might not be available in your location – but if you can’t download our app, you can still use the online platform to trade.

To control your risk, guaranteed stop losses are available. They are an optional feature that needs to be manually selected unless your account includes them automatically. They are also subject to an additional charge if triggered.\

regards

rachel

    • Comcast / Disney bidding war ends - EMEA brief 20th July
      The Comcast / Disney bidding war for 21st Century Fox ended yesterday with the former pulling out of the race. Comcast have stated they are still planning on pursuing Sky. Asian equity markets pushed higher overnight over a volatile trading session as the Chinese yuan bounced off a one year low. Trump showed displeasure towards the Fed's hikes, criticising policy and highlighting concerns on the potential impact of rising interest rates on the US economy causing the Dollar to sag.

      The losses seen in some of the Asian markets are expected to continue in Europe, with small drops for indices expected. Canadian CPI is the sole macro point of interest, while on the earnings front General Electric and Schlumberger report figures. The US dollar will also be in focus after President Trump commented that further rate increases could derail the economic boom in the US.

    • Market Screening for Dividend Opportunities
      This article will also look at IGs market screening tool and attempt to come up with some ideas the stocks that could be bought on the basis of the dividend they offer. It seems a good time to at least begin starting to look at stocks that pay a good dividends (begin creating a Watchlist maybe?)  but crucially stocks that also seem capable of continuing to pay that dividend.

      The reason for this article is the markets have been a bit turbulent lately: there are various geopolitical events on the horizon (which could trigger panic in the market) but also because with stocks trading near all-time highs it may be more prudent to look for stocks that pay in income (dividend) rather than stocks for future the growth potential. And lastly the previous stock market crash was 10 years ago. That in itself is not a sign of doom, but history repeats, eventually. 😉
