Trading with the Ipad using IG Index

Thanks to the power of tablets like the ipad and the sophisticated apps such as those offered by IG Index it’s now possible to trade from almost anywhere on the planet. You can place financial spread bets, place orders, check prices and move stops all from your table. As you can see from the Ipad example you can trade shares, commodities, FX, ETFs and bonds all from the ipad.

Whilst it’s good to have the power of having 24 hour access to your account in your hand, it’s important not to over trade or make rash decisions based on being too close to the market. New trader’s often panic out of perfectly good trades or rushes to take profits too soon.
