IG Index iPhone App

IG Index is the world’s biggest, oldest and most well successful spread betting provider.  The IG Index won numerous awards for its lightning speed online trading platform, advanced charts with 70+ indicators (including Autochartist), tight spreads and mobile dealing technology.  It even offers a special “TradeSense” course which lets beginners open positions from just 10p per point for the first 6 weeks.

IG Index’s iPhone trading app is widely considered THE BEST spread betting app on the market.  It was the only spread betting app to be featured in the Sunday Times top 500 apps list.  It’s also estimated that around 40% of IG Index users place trades through the iPhone app (bear in mind that 39% of active spread bettors in the UK claim that the IG Index is their main broker).

About the IG Index iPhone App

The IG Index App can be downloaded either from the Apple Store (search IG Index) or from the IGIndex.co.uk website.  You can make a deposit directly through the device and transactions are secured through the same technology that Paypal and online banking use.

You can do pretty much everything on the IG Index app which is powered by award winning PureDeal technology.  You can view real-time market prices, open trades, set limit and stop loss orders, view technical charts and even check your account summary, trading history and deposit margins.

In order to open or close a trade you just need to view the markets section, click on a particular instrument and then press “open a ticket”.  This allows you to execute a trade using a choice of currencies, place your stake size, and then attach any stop or limit orders to your account.  To help find a particular market instrument such as “gold spot price” you can use the handy search facility at the bottom of the screen.

Live Charts and Data

The IG Index’s PureDeal mobile technology offers users a range of live-streaming charts to view on their iPhone.  In order to view charts, all you have to do is select a particular stock, click on the Charts tab and then rotate your iPhone horizontally for a landscape view.  You can change the time parameters of charts (1 min, 5 mins, 1 hr, 2 hrs, 1 day etc) and select the chart type (line, candlestick or mountain data).

The best thing about the IG Index App is that it provides a few extra features which even the Capital Spreads and City Index App don’t offer.  For example, in addition to view the latest market prices across thousands of instruments, you can also minimise the app and check the IG Index’s main economic news summaries with the “fast app switching” feature..  If you’re analysing markets, you can quickly tap the iPhone’s home screen twice and open up the Safari browser to browser IG Index website’s expert market analysis.  This enables you to research in markets in greater detail, and you can then click on the HOME button and go to the IG Index App to finish an order.

Other impressive features which the IG Index App offers includes live economic news from Reuters, the ability to edit the various columns displayed (e.g. high/low, buy, %change), view your previous trades, Aggregate view and close, view live market data before you log into your app and more.

In conclusion, the IG Index App is the best iPhone app among all the spread betting companies in my opinion.  It has more features, a reliable platform which executes trades quickly, and its won numerous awards in the industry.
