IG Markets awarded Five Star Rating for both Direct Market Access and Market Maker models
Highest ratings for account services, client services & support, order abilities and transparency of pricing

[CFD trading awards] In its first-ever star ratings comparison of CFD Providers, CANSTAR CANNEX awarded IG Markets Australia a Five Star Rating for 'Outstanding Value'. IG Markets collected Five Star Ratings for both its Direct Market Access and Market Maker models, marking IG Markets as the most highly-rated CFD provider.

Steve Mickenbecker, Head of Research at CANSTAR CANNEX said, 'We researched and analysed products from 16 CFD providers. All providers were assessed based on part-time and full-time traders using the Market Maker and Direct Market Access models. The methodology included 200 pieces of data, making the scope of our new inaugural CFD trading star ratings way more than most traders could hope to compare themselves.'

Mr Mickenbecker commented that there were several things that set IG Markets apart from competitors in terms of offering outstanding value. 'IG Markets offers both Market Maker and Direct Market Access models and is one of the few providers that gives the guaranteed market price when dealing through the Market Maker model. They also scored the highest in terms of features such as account services, client services & support, order abilities and transparency of pricing.'
