How to trade with IG on Apple Watch

The next big deal for traders

We’re excited that ours is one of the first apps on Apple Watch, bringing the markets closer to you than ever before. 

This is Apple’s first move into wearable technology, enabling us to offer an exciting new way to trade with IG.

You’ll be able to trade faster

With the new app, you can use Apple Watch to open and close positions in an instant and see your profit and loss, using natively designed Apple Watch functionality.

You can also access personalised watchlists to view live prices and movements in the markets that matter to you.

And stay ahead of the markets

Our economic calendar is available via the Watch, keeping you informed of the day’s major financial events. You can also see how these events are affecting your positions and act on actual figures the moment they're announced.

Open an account now

It's free to open an account, takes less than five minutes, and there's no obligation to fund or trade.


How can I get the Apple Watch trading app?
The app is available as part of the latest version of our IG iPhone trading app. If you cannot access the app via your Apple Watch please check that the IG app on your iPhone is up-to-date. If you don't have the app you can download it on our iPhone page.

How does the app work?

The Apple Watch app will only work in conjunction with your IG iPhone trading app via Bluetooth connection. Your iPhone must have Bluetooth enabled and be connected to the internet for the Apple Watch app to work.

What can I trade via the app?
The app will allow you to access all the markets in your watchlists, providing they are open. You can also access and close any open position fully or partially, as well as see its profit or loss and any stops or limits. Please note that this first release does not include the ability to set stops and limits but it may be included in a later release. All of the streaming prices on the app will be live.
