Python programming help


panja

Question

EPIC = 'IX.D.FTSE.DAILY.IP'
PRICE_RESOLUTION = 'D'
NUM_POINTS = 20

ig_service = IGService(IG_USERNAME, IG_PASSWORD, IG_API_KEY, IG_ACCT_TYPE)
ig_service.create_session()

response = ig_service.fetch_historical_prices_by_epic_and_num_points(EPIC, PRICE_RESOLUTION, NUM_POINTS)
df_ask = response['prices']['ask']

This is the basic code a friend gave m. I am unable to build on this. My query is, is this type of code antiquated? Is there a new python example code?

If this code is ok, how do I change parameters? What are the other calls that can be used to get data in python?

thanks in advance,

Prakash

@panja I added a method to retrieve prices within the IgClient class at

https://github.com/oneangrytrader/brokerapiclients/blob/master/IG.Python.Api.Client/client/IgClient.py

Input parameters are: Epic, Resolution, DateFrom and DateTo. 

Resolution is an enum also part of the repository., check the possible values there.

An example url retrieving prices for the FTSE100 from the 20th to the 21st of July with a daily resolution would retrieve two candles, one per day.

/gateway/deal/prices/IX.D.FTSE.DAILY.IP?resolution=DAY&from=2020-07-20T00%3A00%3A00&to=2020-07-21T00%3A00%3A00

Producing the result of:

result:[
    {
        "closePrice": {
            "ask": 6269.3,
            "bid": 6265.3,
            "lastTraded": null
        },
        "highPrice": {
            "ask": 6314.3,
            "bid": 6310.3,
            "lastTraded": null
        },
        "lastTradedVolume": 75212,
        "lowPrice": {
            "ask": 6220.1,
            "bid": 6219.1,
            "lastTraded": null
        },
        "openPrice": {
            "ask": 6308.8,
            "bid": 6304.8,
            "lastTraded": null

            "bid": 6264.9,

Repo seems gone!?

I've also started a python project on Ig Api, when I saw your post I was def hoping on gaining some more knowledge or collaboration.

Here's my repo. https://github.com/nickcamel/IgApi
