LONDON, January 10, 2011 - IG Markets, the UK's leading Contract for Difference (CFD) firm, is now
offering its new iPhone dealing app for download. Available free of charge
from the AppStore, the application will offer CFD trading (
www.igmarkets.co.uk/) clients a range of facilities including the
ability to view prices on the full range of markets, place trades, obtain
real-time charts and also receive breaking news headlines from Thomson

Philip Adler, Managing Director of IG Markets (UK), commented:

'The popularity of the iPhone has been nothing short of phenomenal. We
launched an award winning browser optimised for the handset in 2009, but this
latest move means existing and new clients alike can find IG Markets in the
AppStore too.'

IG Markets has been offering an optimised browser for the iPhone since
early 2009, which proved to be highly popular with existing clients. Making a
widely accessible, downloadable application available from the AppStore was
the obvious next step. At present the app is designed for UK clients only but
will be rolled out to other territories in the coming months. In addition to
the next-generation features mentioned above, clients will also be able to:

    - Place CFD trades on the full IG Markets range of instruments - over
      8,000 shares, indices, currencies, commodities and bonds
    - Open and close positions
    - Edit and delete working orders
    - Add stops and limits, including guaranteed stops
    - View watchlists
    - See open positions at a glance
    - View real-time account balances.

Widely recognised as an innovator in its field, IG Markets has offered
dealing on mobile phones since 2004. In addition to the iPhone, IG
Markets also fully supports BlackBerry devices, PDAs and other smartphones,
such as those running the Android operating system. The iPhone app is also
compatible with Apple's iPad.
