Digital 100 types to suit you

Ladder

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.

Up/Down

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.

Target

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.

Hi-Lo

Can you predict the range your market’s daily high or low will fall in?

Choose Hi-Lo digital 100 if you have an opinion on how volatile the market will be through the day.

Tunnel

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.

FAQs

How are IG digital 100 priced?

  • 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.
