How do I open an MT4 account with IG?

I don’t have MT4

  1. Create a live IG account or a demo MT4 account
  2. Log in to your My IG dashboard – from the IG platform, you’ll find it in the top right of your screen
  3. Select ‘add an account’ at the bottom right of the window
  4. Trade CFDs on MT4
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts

I already have MT4

If you already have an MT4 account with another provider but would like to trade with IG, you will need to create a live IG account before you can trade with us. After you have set up a live IG account, you will then need to set up and fund a live IG MT4 account before you can access our MT4 CFD.

However, you can then log into your pre-existing MT4 platform with your IG credentials, which will preserve all of your chart data and analysis.

There is more information on how to create a live IG MT4 account on our download MT4 page.
