IG Historical Data Download

Recommended Posts

I need to download 1 minute historical data for a number of instruments to do some backtesting. I am an IG client and therfore want to test on IG data. My account is capped at 10k datapoints for downloading IG historical data via the API. This sounds a lot, but in reality it only allows you to download 1 week of 1M data once per week; this is very limiting and not really usable for testing lower time frames. Does anyone in the community (or at IG) know if I can get this increased or if there is some other solution?

Any news on this? Can I get some sort of data subscription? I am willing to pay some fee.

Hi @HZia

Please reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com, the IT team will be able to look into your query and advise if the limit can be increased on historical data.

All the best - MongiIG

    • Why isn't there a way to set options stop loss on IG platform?  Are you planning to implement this feature?
    • Hi,  I started trading Brent Crude Oil in IG platform but I could find a formula to correctly calculate the size I have to put while creating a position, based on the available amount I have. The quotation is based in points and it makes me wonder how operate. Any help is welcome.  Also, I plan to work with some leverage in the future, so any tip on this matter is also welcome.  Thanks.
