How to trade IG digital 100s

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

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

Step 1

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

Step 2

Select your strike. If you see a chart icon on the instrument in the finder, you can deal directly on the chart to benefit from streaming data, auto-refresh after market expiry, and the real time profit and loss.

Step 3

Choose your stake and work out your maximum potential profit and loss. If the chart icon is present on the list of instruments, you can deal directly from the chart, which has additional trading benefits.

The fast-moving nature of IG digital 100s provides the possibility of short-term gains, alongside any potential losses. Although digital 100s 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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

How are IG digital 100s priced?

Our digital 100 prices are based on the behaviour of an underlying market, but set by our dealing desk. Each digital 100 is priced between 0 and 100, according to three factors: 

  • time to expiry
  • the underlying market’s current value
  • our expectation of future volatility

This means that if you think you’re a better judge of volatility than us, you have the opportunity to back your judgement.
