Summary

The world's number one broker, and our highest-ranked broker, IG Markets have a very impressive product offering. A market-maker broker, IG Markets only offers the single account for Forex trading (also available as an Islamic account), but spreads are tight and educational and analytical materials are excellent. A wide choice of platform - including MT4 - is also available and customer service is world-class. 

With regulation from the FCA and ASIC, and winner of the Broker of the Year 2018 (UK Forex Awards) and Best CFD Provider 2017 (Investment and Wealth Management Awards), IG Markets is an easy choice for both beginner and experienced traders.
