This app is excellent for beginners like me who are interested in trading. It clearly explains the mechanisms, terminology involved with trading as well as the different strategies available.
The questions in the end of section quizzes are a useful way to consolidate learning and to stimulate thinking on real trading scenarios.
I’ve been working with the IG.COM platform since October 2018. So far I’ve been down in losses by £6,000 (-40%) and up in profits by £12,000 (+120%) from an initial investment of £10,000. At all times I’ve had the IG academy to help me understand the full level of risk involved with my use of the platform. This has been a tremendous learning curve, but having my eyes held wide open by the academy to the inherent risk of spread betting trades has been a great benefit.
Helps you learn the basics of the stock market well. Great app to use.
Very useful information for a beginner
Very informative and easy to understand for a beginner.
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.
Fantastic app for basic knowledge on the market. Great tips on how to use indicators and read charts.
Too bad there isn’t a more advanced version to this app! Great app!
Extremely useful and worthwhile doing all the courses. Quizzes okay, could do with more questions rather than same ones every time
First review ever, but had to because the app is truly helpful.
Loads of knowledge in a great way.
Very good with its purpose can’t really think about anything bad with it.
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.
Outstanding all round, many thanks!
Great for a first time trader, the little exam at the end makes you think and reassure your right
The content is good and well presented but the app suffers from a number of stability issues. When swiping up between individual lessons the app hangs trying to ‘load content’ and having completed a quiz I was unable to submit the results. Would also be helpful if the app could remember me for a period (days or even weeks) to save time logging in every time.
Just downloaded the app and took a look over everything, and it’s looking very promising, I cannot wait to get into it!!
Never had an interest in economics or finance, this app has made it understandable and appealing, I get there is much more to it and a simple app can’t teach you everything but it’s an awesome start to understand the fundamentals. 10/10 dentists would recommend
Step by step approach which was good for me as a complete novice
I think it’s a great source of information for new investors
Interactive, complete and very well explained with simple exercises
V gd teaches basics in minutes but there’s a glitch in the exercise of lesson 6 where you can’t enter the pound sign so you can’t be correct.
This is probably one of the best examples e-learning I've ever experienced. The content is well written and the course well designed. I'm learning a lot and really enjoying it! Thanks 😀
As a learner trainer I saw this app recommended on a forum, and I am so glad I found it!! It has give me a good foundation
I needed to quickly refresh my knowledge and the material in the app was quick and easy to re-learn.
Love the app, it is informative and explains things very well. Can't recommend enough
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!!!
Just started looking at stock exchange and this app has helped me understand a lot!
Good for showing the way to start and what to look for
Great app. With good courses and short videos going straight to the essentials. I'll recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about trading.
Don't pay for overpriced trading courses.
This app has it all for free - excellent.
It's free!!!! What more do you want? Ideal for beginners like myself
This app has helped me understand trading. It is a great place to start if you are new to trading/investing.
Helped me understand complex instruments.
Covers all the basics
Just what a beginner needs.
For a would be trader this a great app to understand the basics of trading and how to go about it. Extremely helpful with video clips to support the explanations then a test at the end to reinforce the knowledge you have just learnt.
Teaches treading in single, simple components easily understood by a novice.
The app is set out nicely for anyone who is interested in or that wants to get started in trading and has validity case studies and well integrated application sections throughout each topic which allow for topics to easily picked up!!
Good E-Learning Tool. Very useful.
This app is perfect for beginners. The information is presented well and given in easily-to-follow steps. Questions during courses help consolidate learning and the graphical representations means you'll able to recognise patterns/ techniques when you use them for trading. 5/5 no doubt.
I can't say enough good things about this App. As a complete newbie to the world of trading it has well and truly set me on my way to learning more about this fascinating subject. Clear and concise with handy short videos interspersed with the tutorials and quiz sections at the end of each section all add up to a great primer.
I love this app, very useful very easy to understand the lessons... Great app!
