Signals is a free technical analysis tool that helps you to identify the right time to trade. Take full advantage of the service by creating a personalised watchlist for your preferred FX instruments. You’ll receive real-time signals when significant trends and potential opportunities begin to emerge, enabling you to make quick, informed decisions about your positions.
You can create your own watchlists – composed of your key currency pairs and much more – or simply use our preset lists.
When a signal becomes available for an instrument in your watchlist, a signal icon will appear next to its name in our platform. As trends begin to develop, these signals will provide you with ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ suggestions, direct from two third-party providers, Autochartist and PIA-First.
Each signal includes concise, actionable research. A typical signal may also include the provider’s confidence level.
As an IG client, you’ll receive signals from both of our providers free of charge, giving you the expertise of two specialists at once. Autochartist’s advanced pattern-recognition technology and PIA-First’s experienced analysts monitor the markets on your behalf, giving you the best of both worlds in terms of technical analysis software and professional expertise.
