Major broker IG launched its US website

 

Global brokerage IG launched its website intended for US retail clients (www.ig.com/us). Residents of the US (with the exception of those in Arizona or Ohio) can now register on the broker’s website in less than 5 minutes and start trading.

 

 

What forex giant IG offers its retail US clients is more than attractive: trading on the leading MeataTrader4 platform with spreads as low as 0.8 pips on EUR/USD and leverage up to 1:50 – the maximum allowed in the country.

 

After most brokers shut down their US operations and moved their business elsewhere several years ago, the US forex market seems to experience some sort of revival lately. Both IG and XM have applied for NFA membership, and IG US LLC,  got a green light from the National Futures Association (NFA) to operate on the US retail forex market in October last year. The broker was approved for all categories – forex dealer member, forex firm, retail foreign exchange dealer, introducing broker and NFA member. We are about to see whether Trading.com Markets Inc. will also get a green light to operate in the US.

 

IG Group also operates Nadex - the premier and largest CFTC-regulated derivatives exchange in the US, offering binary options and spreads to retail traders. The group was established more than 40 years ago and was the first financial services provider in the UK to launch spread betting. It also offers trading in forex, CFDs, stocks, bonds and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

 

IG is regulated by UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), but its subsidiaries are also regulated by the relevant authorities in the countries where they operate (USA, Australia, Japan, South Africa, UAE and Singapore). Besides, IG is listed on the LSE, and is a member of the FTSE 250.
