IG Mobile App -- Good for non-derivative investors?


Recommended Posts

Hi I am not interested in derivatives.  I plan to only buy and hold stocks or ETFs in an UK Share Dealing ISA account.

My research brought me to IG.

I like the idea of having a mobile app for my investment account.  I noticed that the app from IG is called "IG: Spread Bets & CFD".  The name seems to suggest that the app is for derivative trading.  Is IG (and the app) for someone like me?

My other option is Interactive Investor (also in UK).  Which also offer a mobile app.  Would II be more suitable for someone for me?

@dmedin -- What is the name of the mobile app for the "Share Dealing" service?  On Apple Store I could see only "IG: Spread Bets & CFD" (and "IG Academy").  Also, what I am actually interested in is an "Share Dealing ISA" account.  Can I use an mobile app for that account?  Thanks!

 

IG might not have made it available on the appstore yet

@CharlotteIG may know

@HarbourMaster Thanks for your question. 

The App is for both leveraged and non-leveraged trading. You will be able to find and use the share dealing account on the "IG: Spread Bets & CFD". I completely see the confusion here due to the name and will bring it up with our app developers.

@CharlotteIG  Thanks!  I just created a Demo account.  In which I could only find accounts for "CFD Trading" and "Spread Betting".  I also just downloaded the mobile app and logged into my account and saw the same.  Do you mean that (only) after I open an "Share Dealing ISA" account I will be able to see it in the mobile app? (as well as the web platform)  It would be nice if the demo account includes also that so that there will be less confusion.

Answering my own question here.  The answer is yes.  Now I have opened my "Share Dealing ISA" account and have started using both the mobile app and the web platform.  Thanks!

    • GUSH is showing only for closing - not able to open trades on SB account. So I guess that means its not allowed in the ISA account either? What about the 3x Shell and BP ETFs? Its showing available in ISA but not able to buy them?
    • Hi Beck, you can access trailing stop loss by clicking on "Stop" and select "Trailing". I have attached a screenshot of the web platform. The same functionality is available on the mobile platform I believe (I don't use it so I cannot check for you).
    • According to Arrow Exploration (AXL) CEO, Marshall Abbott, Colombia is an excellent place to do business. Apart from an incoming well in Canada bringing on gas, Colombia is bearing tremendous fruit for the company and is the place where expansion is being undertaken. Listen in to the plans the board has to deliver increased shareholder value.
