IG Innovation Streamlines The Dealing Process

LONDON, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The UK's leading CFD and spread betting provider* launches another UK first, with a cutting-edge plugin that integrates dealing on the financial markets with browsing the web

IG, a world-leading CFD, spread betting and forex provider, has launched an innovative Chrome extension that enables its clients to place deals from almost any website.

The IG Dealing extension identifies and lists all available markets on a webpage. Users click a market to open a deal ticket instantly. As an example, imagine you're reading an article about the falling price of Brent crude oil and decide you want to deal: you could open your position within seconds straight from that page.

IG has optimised the extension for major financial and general news sites, such as the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Reuters, The Economist and BBC News. Users can also manually activate the extension on any website.

IG chief executive, Tim Howkins, commented: "We're committed to providing our clients with the very latest technology. We help them take advantage of market opportunities safely and securely. While we don't see this extension as a replacement for our main dealing platform, we believe it's one of the most exciting additions to the financial trader's toolkit in a long time."

The IG Dealing Chrome extension is available to all IG clients. For more information, visit http://www.igmarkets.co.uk/dealing-platforms/puredeal/chrome-extension.html .
