Great for beginners

I downloaded the app for learning more about trading and I’m already on my 2nd course. The lessons sizes are short and informative, and the content is engaging. The quizzes are good for checking the user’s understanding, and the information the courses provide is very useful.

I wish they would offer a more comprehensive course that would have a completion certificate, but I guess their main focus is to get the user to trade through their app.

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.
