IG MT4
« on: August 22, 2013, 11:50:52 AM »
My first broker was IG Index quite a few years ago now. But when I discovered MT4 I stopped using them.

Now they have "seen the light" and offer MT4 with leverage of up to 400:1.

Hope this is useful information for you  :)

Thanks for the info.

1. They are not offering micro lot, so minimum lot size is 0.10.

2.  Spread looks ok in majors and the rest it looks crazy.   e.g. minimum spread in AUDNZ is 9.5. I noticed at Think Forex it is from 2.5 to 5 and IBFX from 3 to 6 so they are miles away ?

Is this the reason thinkforex and ibfx are Australian based so low spread in Aussies ?

The minimum spreads on the majors look reasonable, though does anyone know what live floating spreads are like. Typical spread on the EUR/USD is apparently 1.9 pips, but with the disclaimer that this can vary under different market conditions. 

Not shocked by the spread on some of the more minor pairings, as they are making a CFD market. But I don't see why traders would opt for IG Markets over other Market Makers that offer Forex and MT4 trading such as Oanda.

Trust and safety are two good reasons I can think of.

For those investing very considerable sums in Forex, CFDs and other financial instruments, putting your money with IG makes a lot of sense.

and now they enter the gray area where traders will constantly wonder whether they use VDP or not.
