What are trading signals?
Trading signals are actionable ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ suggestions, based on technical or fundamental analysis. You can choose to have signals sent directly to you, as opportunities in selected markets arise, and use them to help you decide how to trade.
Disclaimer: The signal service does not constitute and should not be regarded as investment advice. IG provides an execution only service. You act on the signals entirely at your own risk.
