All of these moments trigger real emotions and cause adrenalin to flow; that’s why our world-class and unique advanced trading simulator Ignite, has been designed to put you in a trader’s chair. It allows you to see the wealth of information you are exposed to and have to process expediently in order to manage your positions, as well as your profit & loss.
