Once you’ve developed your knowledge about trading, you’ll need a broker and a trading platform to place your orders. The broker that we recommend is IG-Markets.

Please note – Trading Game Pty Ltd acts as an introduction agent to IG-Markets. As such it receives remuneration from IG for facilitating this introduction. Details of this remuneration are available upon request.

We have managed to negotiate an excellent brokerage rate with this online platform, and we have been extremely impressed with their service and commitment to effective trading practices. Not only does this service offer a method of live paper-trading to hone your skills, but when it comes time to trade, you’ll be able to trade every instrument imaginable, all from the one account, minimising your hassle and paperwork.

When undertaking the account opening process there are certain steps that need to be undertaken to ensure the smooth opening of your account. Following these steps will make certain your account is up and running as quickly as possible.

Craig has just set up a website with the ability to open your IG-Markets accounts online (but for you to receive the benefits of being tracked back to us – ie so we’ll have sway with IG in the future to develop improved functionality). Click here:

or – ask for Craig & call:

or: +61 (3) 9860 1799
New Zealand Freecall 0800 442 150
or: +61 (3) 9860 1799

Craig has helped a lot of our people over the years, and it’s nice to have a personal contact we can rely on.

So, why people should join IG through our contact there – Craig Thiessen? 

Louise says: “There are a few reasons – I’ve got a free Welcome Pack I can provide for you when you go through our bloke, plus, down the track, if you want to check things, you can give Craig permission & he can give us access to some/all of your trades so we can check. (Only if he gives us permission though – which I’m sure you’d realise. We can’t just see your account, unless you say so).

Also, frankly, it keeps us in good standing with IG which is something that’s important because we have swayed some of their decision making & direction on features in the past. This is really essential to us because we’ve become the ‘voice of our traders’ – so for us to continue in this role, we need to prove we’ve referred numbers of traders to their services.

Some of the things we’ve requested as a group have been difficult for IG to fulfil – but they’ve always given us the benefit of the doubt, and if they can possibly help, they do. This is quite unusual in the brokerage industry.

Previously we were involved with CBS (Commodity Broking Services). CBS have recently been sold to Saxo Bank. We are no longer licensed through Saxo, and have no affiliation with them whatsoever. We have however maintained contact with our favourite broker Jono (who sold his company CBS to Saxo). He’s a top bloke & we adore him. He’s been with us for so many years, it is a pleasure to now have our license through his new company. To have a look at his bulletin, click here.
