    Account Segregation and Independent Audits by a third party institution is something I really look for in a new broker and so far IG Index is the one that I have found to be the most viable. Proactive measures like these are what improve one’s faith in a broker and so far they have proven to be most efficient and supportive of traders.

    I believe this should be a staple for all brokers out there yet not everyone has them. Thanks to mini-accounts provided by IG Index I was able to get a feel for forex trading before I actually invested a significant amount of my savings into it. Thanks to them, not only did I learn how to do things properly, I was able to get sufficient knowledge in forex trading.

    A fair assessment of IG Index would be good, but not really the best out there. IG Index has most of the good points of different brokers out there but it doesn’t really stand out above the rest when it comes to services and support. Then there’s the fact that they are too stingy to give bonuses which is a big downer for me.

    There’s a reason that the IG Web-Based Platform has one awards and that’s because it runs so smoothly even when there are news events and even during periods where one expects a great amount of volatility. Normally, other trading platforms would freeze during news events or just show massive spreads, but that never seems to happen with IG Index’ platform.

    I’ve been dealing with a number of brokers out there and the one to have the worst record so far in terms of reviewing documents and opening your account is IG Index. I’ve been around long enough to know that a week’s processing is already considered a long time but nearly a month is just beyond ridiculous, not only do they ask for such outrageous documents they also take so long to process them! Ughhh!!!
