FAQ

An online trading account enables you to trade on markets like forex, shares, indices and more. You may also be able to trade on both desktop and mobile, dependent on your provider.

You can open a trading account by simply completing an online form – meaning that you can often start trading in minutes.

You can typically trade across thousands of markets – such as forex, shares, indices, cryptocurrencies, options and more.

Your security is ultimately in the hands of your provider. 256-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption – used by IG – is the current industry standard for online financial transactions. Some providers also offer two-factor authentication for added account security.
