IG Group vs Robinhood

IG Group vs Robinhood Comparison Table 2021
IG Group Robinhood
IG-US offer spread betting, CFD and Forex trading across a range of markets. They are FCA regulated, boast a great trading app and have a 40 year track record of excellence. Robinshood have pioneered mobile trading in the US. Their offer attempts to provide the cheapest share trading anywhere.
We do not recommend trading with Robinhood. Their business practices have harmed traders and their "free" trading offer has been criticized for actually costing their traders millions of dollars.
