It is misleading to describe this as an options broker
Online Platform (out of 5 stars): 4
Customer Service (out of 5 stars): 3
Fees & Pricing (out of 5 stars): 4

IG is NOT an options trading platform. It is a spreadbetting / CFD platform. You can only take out CFDs or place spread bets with IG. You never actually own the options that the CFD or spread bet is based on. You are basically just betting on variations in the price of the option.



There are very few advantages to doing this. As option prices vary with the underlying, you may as well just bet on the underlying instead. Betting on the option instead just introduces another layer of complexity.

Its got worse - the spreads have to go down
Online Platform (out of 5 stars): 5
Customer Service (out of 5 stars): 3
Fees & Pricing (out of 5 stars): UK

I have been with IG for many years, the main reason being I really like their charting software. However, since they have reduced leverage, after the European directive, their spreads have become even wider, probably to make up for the fact that one is forced to use smaller trade sizes. The worse thing currently about IG is the spreads that they apply to Indices and Equities. If they can reduce their spreads then I think it would be the best online broker for sure.

IG's gone downhill
Online Platform (out of 5 stars): 4
Customer Service (out of 5 stars): 2
Fees & Pricing (out of 5 stars): 2

I have been with IG now for over 20 years. In the early years they provided excellent customer service. All were well mannered whenever I called up and all issues resolved promptly. However, over the last couple of years their customer services have really gone downhill. I was frequently kept on hold for long time. When there was an issue and I needed to close out my trades they took literally hours to close - hours seemed like eternity in trading, but yet this continued to happen again and again. When I asked for compensation it involved arguing over many emails with different people before I got my compensation. Their ordering system kept making errors and this meant I often had to call up. Their spreads weren't the best in the markets, so when combined with poor customer service it definitely is not worth staying with them.

IG is a good broker but it is very expensive for the new trader, it ok for the rich they should have more concern for the newcomer. Trading forex, indices, stocks and indices with IG for 1-2 years on a daily basis)
