2 demo accounts through API (Python)


FatFoss

Question

Hello!
I have an issue by using two demo accounts. It seems that the server does not work correctly through the "ig-trading" library for Python. Request for 1st account has been sent to 2nd account and request for 2nd account has been sent to 1st account. Returns no positions. How can I control sessions at request time for each of the accounts?

Hi @FatFoss, could you please clarify if the issue is only occurring on the Python API, or if it is happening on the companion too?

Thanks - Arvin

It relates to Python API. There is no way to work with two different accounts in prallel in the companion, so everything works well there. The problem is when I start using multiple instances of the IGService() class from the "ig-trading" library. It seems that server confuses the requests when I send orders and I can not get positions (there are positions actually)

Did you get any further with this? I'm coding in c# and will have the same problem looking at the code, I'm going to try and copy the api to a new solution under a different name, so will need to do this for each extra account I want to connect to it seems

you need to switch account if you are using 1 api key with 2 accounts

So it's possible to have 2 api keys and connect to them independently?.

I had a look at the new authentication, I can't remember it exactly off the top of my head but it seemed like I could maybe get two independent conversation context or whatever it is.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
