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

    • While browsing the web today, I stumbled upon the Apu Apustaja site, captivated by its melodious music and perfect rhythm. Intrigued, I delved into the project. APU stands out as a community-driven memecoin that emerged from the fallout of a rug-pulled project. Through unwavering dedication and transparency, the community resurrected APU, propelling it to become one of the fastest-growing memecoins, boasting a market capitalization of over $115M according to CoinMarketCap. A closer look reveals APU's ambitious aim: to emulate and surpass the success of PEPE. With leading exchanges like Bitget now listing APU, exposing it to a wider audience, it seems only a matter of time before this gem reaches a market cap of $500M or even $1B. What are your thoughts on this project? I encourage you to explore their website to get a firsthand glimpse of what I'm talking about.
