Trading with IG Markets is not that bad, I could see myself that spreads are not that bad, 1.8 pips. plus a commission of $10, but I could see that is not for a newbies, firstly because the information in the website is very confusing,I really got lost in it. And you need to have some background in market analysis before you can appreciate the array of tools provided. Also it takes long to their support answer an issue and if you are in a hurry, forget.

I finally closed my account with this broker and now the support team is harassing me to open again a live account because they have this new strategy to help me. I was their client for 4 months and the support was nonexistent I called them many times, they put me on hold for a couple of minutes then hand-up. the email never answered, and now they are calling me?! Ok, I had a lie account with 250$ made a profit the first 3 months on Bitcoin, Gold and EUR/USD pair, the withdraw of 1200$ took 2 weeks to get approval, and at withdraw they actually held 200$ as commission. So I was able to take 1000$. The last month I actually had problems with the platform MetaTrader 4 and also on Android delays 2-3 seconds, the broker manipulating the prices, the spreads from 1 pips up to 5 pips. The cherry on top is that I had some positions opened during the night and the next day in the morning they were closed and the money 240$ gone with the wind. I called nobody ever answered to my questions. I decided to close the account and I went to other broker.

IG Markets's platform got frozen when I was about to close my profitable trades on Tuesday, 11/04/2017 and some of my profits disappeared. Had a profitable trade for USD/JPY worth $13.26 and I immediately called them. My call was put on hold for 20 minutes and was told to wait for the email to be sent by the technical department. It's not my first time to encounter such issue. I am going to search for a reliable broker because their action is not acceptable anymore.

IG markets is one of the best brokers in the market. I have a live account with a deposit of 1500$ currently. My first deposit was 300$ made with Visa credit card, The money were available to trade instantly. The platform works with fast execution of trade without crazy spreads or crashing, and it has real time quotes. I trade mainly two currency pairs EUR/USD and USD/JPY, also Gold. The spread for EUR/USD is 0.8 pips, I had some fluctuations during news feed but it was not to much, from 0.8 pips to 1 pip. During 4 months of trading I made 6k $ profit from which I withdraw 4.500 $. There is not hidden commissions at withdraw process. I like this broker and I will continue to trade with IG Markets.

I had a terrible experience with this broker. My EA is not working very well compare to my other 2 brokers. Slippage always went to negative trades with a peak of 15 pips that led me to losses and the price movement is so slow. The demo was totally different form the live trading and as a scalper I suggest not to trade with them. the customer support shows in their Ads that they responded fast and available 24/7. that isn't true. My tickets was not responded for more than 3 days now. Stay away from this broker.
