Trading signals are a great way to have chart patterns, which can constitute ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ opportunities, recognised and analysed automatically – taking some legwork out of your analysis. They’re a useful part of your broader analysis toolkit. However, you act on them entirely at your own risk – they’re never a sure thing.

Our signals come directly from two third-party providers – Autochartist and PIA-First.

You can get signals on your mobile devices with the IG Trading app, and on desktop with the IG Trading platform.

You’d set a trading alert to notify you of the economic releases, price changes or a chart meeting your technical conditions (which might be a signal in itself). Our trading signals inform you of significant trends or patterns in the markets that could lead to a trading opportunity.
