Recommended platform - IG Index

As I have mentioned here on more than one occasion, I use the IG Index platform to carry out my trading. Trading in this manner via spreadbetting has the advantage, under current UK tax laws, of being exempt for Capital Gains Tax purposes on profits generated.

The combination of the range of available markets to trade, ease of execution, trading platform stabililty and the charting package mean that I highly recommend their platform to anyone thinking of trading in this manner. On the majority of markets you can also use guaranteed stops on your positions, thereby enabling you to quantify your exact risk in the market, without having to worry about overnight gaps, for example.

I am delighted to be acting as an introducer on behalf of IG Index. Opening an account is easy, and usually can be completed in a matter of minutes.

To have Trader Steve identified as the account introducer, and for more details, please follow this link.

IMPORTANT: Applying for an account via the link above does not increase the level of any commissions or dealing spreads that you may incur.

  1. Definitely agree Steve - have tried 4 other platforms in the UK and IG beats them all.
