As I consider myself a new broker in this market since I have been trading for only a year, I was looking for a broker with a small minimum deposit and and small volumes for my profile. So, I opened a Mini account 9 months ago, and deposited $450 and I am very careful when setting my leverage.I could see that spreads for majors like EUR/USD and EUR/GBP can reach 1.8 during the day, but it never surpass such level, for me, is competitive.So far I have made two withdrawals of the profits I made, the last one $415 via Wire Transfer, and I could see that no hidden commission was added. So far so good.

I usually trade the major pairs especially the EUR/USD pair. So far, I am able to trade well at IG Markets and their platform could handle high volatility which is a good thing. The lag is not tremendous unlike with other brokers. Customer support is also outstanding and dependable. And most importantly, withdrawal transactions are processed efficiently.

Best broker so far, after 5 years of Forex trading, I finally found one that is reliable and ready to pay you your money whenever you request for it. I have been watching the Market to see how they respond and quite honestly I feel more comfortable trading with them. Most importantly I have made $1500 while trading with them for 9 months and the customer service are always ready to help me

I was looking for a potential forex broker for my investment. IG Markets was one of the brokers I bumped into and it seemed very promising. Since it is regulated, I decided to go with it. I wasn't disappointed because it proven itself true to what it and its other traders claim about it. It provides real-time exchange rates and the platform is undoubtedly stable. The customer support communicates well with the clients and are very attentive to our concerns.

IG Markets has been my forex broker for around three years now. I wouldn't have last this long in this broker if it didn't provide excellent services. First of all, I love their platform. It has advanced charts, simple but sophisticated layout, fast execution, and helpful tools. They also give importance to their clients' feedback. They continuously improved not just their platform but also their website and its contents according to clients' suggestions. You can never go wrong with a broker that listens to its traders.

I write my comment about IG Markets performence because I want to promote this broker to every trader and every one.

Horrible! IG AE turned me down for not having enough funds when I was ready to deposit intially $2,500 in their accounts. I understand they offer margins but I don't expect to blow up my account by making unsizable trades beyond my risk limits. Also, I did offer to keep increasing my trading account each month. Also, I don't understand their policies as they are not even ready to disclose what is the minimum amount of liquid funds to open an account with them. I'd rather go to Interactive Brokers as they offer much better spreads in India and they have a minimum $10K deposit, thanks Akash

IG Markets is a fair broker better than all the rest i have tried. Trading with them I can generate consistent profit about $2000 to $3000 in a month. It is good to trade with them because deposit and withdraw process run so fast and the platform easy to use even in the mobile applications. Besides whenever I have questions about new platforms and how it works, they answered it quickly in accurate and understandable way. So far trading platform is good to use and I’m not face any requotes and platform freeze during the process. Last week I withdraw 30% profit directly from my trading account via wire transfer, which was completed within 3 hours. I'm very pleasantly impressed by their trading conduct so I invite my friend as much as I can to join this broker.

I first started to trade with IG Marketes after I tried their demo account. I am now their client for over 5 months, and I am pleased with their services. The minimum deposit is 1000$ and it worth the trust in this broker because is honest and doesn't manipulate the prices during volatility times. The platform works fast in execution. I had a couple of times delays in execution and I called their support team, which told me that I just need to restart my platform, and they were right. I trade with them EUR/USD with a low spread of 0.8 pips, USD/GBP, USD/CAD, USD/JPY and USD/NZD. My profit increased with each month, and now is close to 500$. To withdraw is easy without hidden commissions.

The platform MetaTrader 4 works fast in execution with real time prices. I trade with them currency pairs EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF and Gold. I didn't had problems with withdraw money and it took about 24h to get the approval. MY profit is average 600$. The broker is reliable.
