How to set default demo account


Guest pat

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a live account, under which I recently applied for a demo account. On My IG, I wanted to launch the DEMO platform by clicking on button "Open platform" below account "Spread bet"; there's another demo account created by default, "CFD". I was unable to open the demo platform, with error message "No default account set. Sorry, it's not possible to access our new IG Trading platform without having a default account set. Please set a default account in My IG."  I had set the default account to spread bet under "Settings/Default account", which, however, seems to have an effect only on my live accounts, not on demo. Can someone shed light on this?

For anyone coming here by Google, I solved how to change default accounts.

Because you need to change the account, in order to avoid the "Stockbroking-not-supported" error when using the API.

For Live accounts it can be done on the website (settings -> standard view / default view)

For Demo & Live accounts it can also be done in the IG app. (I tested on Android)

(Account -> Accounts -> choose Live or Demo -> choose the account you want -> click on 3 dots -> Set as default

    • ''The front page of tomorrow's Daily Telegraph: 'Scrap school Covid tests, says Oxford jab pioneer'.''   The constant testing of asymptomatic people is a complete waste of time and money and with almost all positives being false cause nothing but chaos. Weapons grade stupidity right from the start.   Meanwhile don't forget SAGE predicted 1200 deaths a day for the June summer surge (try 7). I posted the SAGE prediction back in March in the Wuflu thread, called it total garbage even then.   datatosee.com  @dontbetyet 2h ''Where we are at against Fergusons 1,200 deaths a day in a summer wave. With no real vaccinations in January and it peaked at 1,285 how can 1,200 be realistic in anyway shape or form. Even if we had 0 vaccines still, it is summer and more people with prior infections.''     .
    • wow this is causing a storm (only a year too late). surely he's not going to last a week.   ''But if lockdown saves just one life.........''   ''Seriously... what the hell did he think would happen, when the only illnesses they cared about was and still is Covid!? Deaths of any other reason are an extra boost to their Covid figures! He should be known as the ‘secretary of state for death’!''
