Top drawer information

I had my doubts about this app, I thought it be like a lot of other junk thats out there, but I was so pleasantly surprised.
I've been wanting to start retail trading for a while now, but even though I have a looked at and studied trading tools, I still felt underprepared to going to the markets. This app has actually given me the confidence and tools to take the plunge. Thank you IG.

Wanted to get into trading and came across this app. Great content and I like the fact it quizzes you at the end of each segment to make sure the knowledge has gone in. For someone starting out, it is comprehensive and well rounded so has probably saved me hours of scouring the web looking for this level of detail.

Very clear

Very clear form of education. A good mix of words, pictures, diagrams and video. The size of the sections ensure Bute size info is packaged well to try to maximise knowledge retention. People generally hate tests but it's the best way to see if you have retained and understand something. Just need to figure out what my risk profile will be now!!!
