How to trade IG Bank digital 100s

A digital 100 is generally based on a single question with a yes/no answer. For example: Will the underlying market do X before the digital 100 expires?

If you're right at the time of expiry, you win. If you're wrong, you lose.

Step 1

Choose the appropriate digital 100 type, based on what you think will happen.

Step 2

Select your strike to view the market’s chart, with one eye on streaming data and real-time profit and loss.

Step 3

Decide upon your stake, work out your maximum potential profit and loss, and take a position on whether the event will take place (buy) or won’t (sell). 

Note:

The fast-moving nature of IG Bank digital 100s provides the possibility of short-term gains, alongside any potential losses. Although digitals are limited risk, you should be aware that there is still the potential to make substantial losses as well as gains.

Digital 100 types to suit you

Ladder

At expiry, will the market be higher or lower than your chosen levels?

Use a ladder when you think a market will move by a certain amount, but you aren’t sure in which direction.

Up/Down

Will the market be higher or lower at expiry?

Up/Downs are a type of ladder, but you decide whether the market will finish above or below a certain level.

One touch

Will the market hit a specific level before expiry?

One touches pay out if you’re right, even if the market price only stays there for seconds.

Target

At expiry, do you think the market will close within a specified range?

If you know both the direction and the level that a market will finish at, try target digital 100s.

Hi-Lo

Can you predict the range your market’s daily high or low will fall in?

Choose Hi-Lo digital 100s if you have an opinion on how volatile the market will be through the day.

Tunnel

Will the market remain between two chosen levels until expiry?

Use a tunnel to buy if you think markets will stay flat, sell if you expect them to hit one of the chosen levels.
