Hi guys,

Just joined IG. Is it a good platform for day trading stocks (i.e are trades instant, and are there enough good quality technical analysis tools)?

Also, I can't seem to find any scanners?

Thanks!

Hi @francisg,  there are 4 platforms for stocks, 

the non-leveraged IG shares platform,

DMA with L2 data for shares or shares on cfd,

the IG online leveraged (spread bet or cfd) or the

Prorealtime (sb or cfd).

Presuming you are meaning the online leveraged, the screener hasn't yet been migrated from the old to the new. you can open the old by clicking on the arrow for the dropdown box, see pic.

Also see the thread linked on using the screener.

Thanks! 

Im quite new to trading and would like to trade stocks and EFT’s using a real time system. Does the web (browser) based IG platform accommodate for that usage?

@Caseynotes Definitely non-leveraged initially to limit my exposure. One concern I have is the speed of the web based system. Do you happen to know how much lag there is and how quick positions can be open/closed (any lag in doing so?). 

Many thanks for your help.

@francisg, are you sure now? Platform lag is not a real problem and is measured in milliseconds (my mt4 is 32ms), more of a problem causing buy/sell lag is likely to be liquidity when trading actual stocks. There needs to be sellers to buy from and buyers to sell to, for most stocks that won't be a problem except in times of high volatility.

The sb/cfd (leveraged) market is much larger than the actual underlying market so the above concerns are less likely and of course you don't have to use all the leverage.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
