New share dealing platform

Recommended Posts

Is there likely to be an update to the share dealing platform to bring it in line with the the spread betting and CFD platform, I worry that IG don't value their share dealing arm of the business as much as the CFD and spread bet which is a shame as their share dealing is top-drawer.

I somewhat agree. I would like to see better coordination amongst all the accounts so that I can switch easily between them. At the moment I have to use subterfuge and multiple logins to monitor spread betting, ISA and share platforms visible simultaneously and the differences in the platforms adds to the confusion.

We're hoping to roll the new share dealing account out beginning of February. This will have a similar layout to the new Spread betting and CFD accounts you see today. :)

We're not offering calls and puts on non-leveraged accounts. When you buy calls/ puts they have limited risk on the leveraged platforms.

Yes, call options are a great idea for that reason.

Would love to see call options available for everything on the leveraged platform :)

The downside to you is less money on commissions, right?  As people aren't getting stopped out by those stupid spikes.

With all market, except CFD equity options, we still take spread so we would happily have clients trade options With CFD equity options we charge commission. 

The reason we don't offer it for every market is there's not as much demand and we have to buy/ sell these in the underlying every time someone trades. Meaning, if it's something that hardly anyone is buying we would have to go out a buy/ sell very small positions.
