Looking for a list of 'instrument' 'EPIC's

Question

Hi,

I was trying my hand at programming to get some data. I am unable to find a list of instrument EPICs in the glossary or reference. Could anyone please point me to the right place to look for those?

EPIC = 'CS.D.EURUSD.MINI.IP'  here is an example of an epic. I am looking for FTSE100 DFB and others.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi panja, I normally use the "markets" endpoint to search for EPICs. If you are able to connect to the API there is an endpoint listening at:

https://api.ig.com/gateway/deal/markets?searchTerm=

Where the search term would be a common string that you would use to identify the market. As an example, using FTSE as the search condition the url would become like 


https://api.ig.com/gateway/deal/markets?searchTerm=FTSE

The json response will contain the market EPIC.
 

"markets": [{
        "epic": "IX.D.FTSE.DAILY.IP",
        "instrumentName": "FTSE 100",

    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
