As you develop your trading skills and explore different techniques, we can support you on your journey. As well as the core platform functions, we provide a number of additional advanced platform features to help you.
As well as providing alerts to let you know about potential opportunities, we also supply ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ signals, in our web platform’s Signal Centre. These signals come from both Autochartist – automated software that scans the markets and analyses data – as well as PIA First, a trading strategy service from professional analysts.
These signal providers continuously monitor market movements, looking for any significant trend or pattern developing that could constitute a signal to trade. You can view a list of recent signals in Signal Centre on the platform – or set up alerts to have them delivered to you as they occur.

Advanced dealing options
We also allow you to take more control over the way your position is set up, to increase your chances of successful execution.
There will be times when your full order can’t be filled at the price offered to you when you place the trade – usually when it’s a large order and there isn’t sufficient volume of the asset available at that price in the underlying market. It can also happen in volatile markets, if a price moves so rapidly that it changes before the trade can be executed.
When these situations arise, we’ll cancel the whole order so it’s not filled at a price you didn’t want.
At IG we also offer ways for you to tailor how your trades are executed, to ensure this doesn’t happen. For example, in the ‘advanced options’ area on our deal ticket.
