The ‘research’ tab in our platform provides everything you need to build an effective trading strategy. You can find it at the top of the platform once you’ve logged in to your account.

Market data

In market data, you’ll find a breakdown of the latest news and analysis from IG, as well as real-time company announcements.

You’ll also find a number of graphics illustrating the general positions IG clients are taking on the markets. You can use these to identify the markets our clients are trading most frequently, as well as the shares that have seen the biggest price movements in the past day, week or month.

To view this data for an individual market, click on the pie chart icon next to its name.
