Question

Hi , i would like to know if this has ever happened to any investor here.

I went to sell 150000 shares which i had purchased the week before for my grand daughter, the money was from a sale in Baccanora.

As i was away from home i used the  IG app on the phone, this was at roughly 4pm last Friday, it said transaction Failed.

A minute later i tried again ,again it failed .i went into the golf club and tried again. again failed.

I then thought no internet connection . so i asked one of the staff for the password inputted that and tried again 150000 shares sold. horay i thought . later when i arrived back home i discovered that i only had half of my shares left. when i checked my account. it had sold 600000 shares within 10 mins which i did not want. as of yet have not received an email back from IG compliance dept.

Hi @grab123456,

Once a complaint is lodge the compliance team will go through all the interaction in regards of the issue raised. The investigation can take some time. Once reviewed they will come back to you with the result of he investigation and an outcome to your query.

Thank you for your patience.

All the best - Arvin

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
