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?

Coincidentally enough, IG's new share dealing platform just launched today - it leverages the same technology as the derivatives platform so you might be in luck.

@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.

    • There is the 'potential' for a breakout in Natural Gas from these price areas. 
    • One of our financial writers have written a piece on smoking vs vaping vs cannabis. Really interesting read. Here's a snip:  Main points:  Big Tobacco turns smoke into vapour Vaping: UK and US take different approaches … with different results Altria’s JUUL investment costs it dearly US vaping crisis highlights importance of a diverse portfolio Can Big Tobacco thrive as cannabis legalisation gains momentum? Altria gets stung for early move into cannabis Can vaping and other smokeless devices become key to the cannabis market?   Find the full article here: Vaping or cannabis: where’s the growth for Big Tobacco?  
    • I see a trend here ... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman refused to comment on Monday when asked about the hiring of an adviser who has discussed the benefits of forced contraception and said data showed the U.S. black population had lower IQ than white people. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-politics-adviser/johnsons-office-silent-as-rivals-call-for-adviser-to-be-sacked-idUKKBN20B1NI
