Those that choose to open a PayPal trading account with IG have the option of several platforms, each catering to different experience levels and trading styles.
For beginner traders, IG’s own platform is most suitable, offering a user-friendly interface and many additional features and functionality.
For more experienced traders, ProRealTime, MT4 and L2 Dealer are all available. There is also IG’s own Progressive Web App that can be used on any type of device.
Charges, fees and spreads are relatively on par with other popular brokers; however, users should be aware that an inactivity charge is applied to dormant accounts.
IG’s educational library is particularly comprehensive, with webinars, podcasts and seminars, analysis tools, advice on strategy and planning, news and trade ideas.
