Extended Courtesy: IG Markets Launches a Chrome Extension

Just a few days ago, we reported of the European broker Trading212 releasing an extension for Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera, which allows clients to trade instantly through their browser.  U.S. based Oanda, the actual pioneer in this department, have been offering their Chrome add-on for almost half a year now. Yesterday, yet another major player in the forex and CFD industry, Australian IG Markets, announced that they will be following suit with a brand new Chrome extension of their own. Current customers and those interested in becoming ones will also get to enjoy a free preview of IG's dealing platform.

IG's browser supplement functions in a similar way like its predecessors, letting users access their trading accounts straight from the extension, without the need to leave the page. However, it also takes things a step further: the add-on identifies financial markets related to the page you're viewing and provides live prices so that traders can react accordingly, by either selling or buying a certain instrument, in a matter of seconds. The software also connects directly to relevant data on IG's insight center, as well as on their platform – and does so with a single click. Although the extension works on any website, it's specifically optimized for the bigger financial and news media outlets. To mention just a few: the Economist, Reuters, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Investopedia and a good deal of others. Whether you trade forex or CFDs, or both, all that is required of you to be able to use the Chrome extension in its full functionality is to be an IG client.
The new extension in action
Here's what Tamas Szabo, Head of IG Asia Pacific had to say about their latest product: “This new addition alongside our trading platform is an exciting innovation for us. We're committed to providing our clients with cutting-edge technology, and the Chrome extension will help them take advantage of market opportunities whenever they want, safely and securely.”
The trading platform Szabo mentions is also brand new. It will be available to all, actual and aspiring clients alike, for a period of two weeks. You'll get to explore the features of IG's newest dealing software for free some of which include browsing through thousands of global markets, monitoring live prices and price behavior over time, as well as accessing various charts and technical indicators.
“The CFD and FX industry is fiercely competitive, and we've made it easier for traders to experience our award-winning platform instantly. We hope the open access to our platform will make the process of choosing the right CFD provider easier for traders,” says Szabo. 
And while we agree that to survive the competition, brokers need to provide better, faster and more accessible services each day, such self-flattery sounds convincing to no one – so we will wait to see the platform ourselves and then draw conclusions.
