Can I link my IG Trades automatically into Yahoo Finance and is there a better way to keep track of everything?

Struggling to get a overview of all Stocks and analysis of performance. I want to keep tab of all investments in one platform. I use IG for my Trades but want to group in different sectors like:  Software and services, Commodities, etc

Two Questions

1) Yahoo Finance seems to offer a good platform for this, but want to automate the link between IG Trades and Yahoo, can I do this, and how?

2) If there a better way to keep track of everything I am open to that also, any suggestions?

Hi @BradleyP

Unfortunately it is not possible to link IG trades to Yahoo, and what we offer in terms of tracking open positions is what is available in the positions window. Being able to categorize open positions between sectors is a good suggestion and we will pass this feedback on to our developers. 

All the best

I suggest you build something in Excel to keep track of your portfolio.

You can use an Add-in that I have built that connects to both Yahoo Finance and IG Index (spread betting and CFD, not shares as it uses the IG API): https://www.excelpricefeed.com/

The Add-in provides formulas, such as =EPF.Yahoo.Sector("AAPL") which will populate a cell with the industry sector for Apple stock.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any feedback or need any help.

Nice gadget.

I don't use Excel but I will point some friends to it. 

Thanks for sharing.

    • Asian markets followed the US lead and moved lower, as Fed speakers continued to dutifully follow Jerome Powell in reiterating the need for more rate increases. However, a more optimistic tone may prevail in Europe on the open, helped along by an upgraded forecast on Chinese growth from Barclays. A slip-up from Alphabet's new chatbot Bard meant that shares in the search giant fell sharply, dragging the S&P 500 lower, while Disney soared after earnings, though a promise to cut 7000 jobs reinforces the growing trend of layoffs in corporate America. Another quiet day lies ahead, with just weekly jobless claims on the calendar.   
    • Binance Coin experienced consistent growth throughout January 2023 and was able to overcome the $315 resistance level in the first few days of February 2023. Since November 2022, there has been noticeable resistance at this level. A move above it therefore portends more gains. Recent research emphasised BNB's recent strong market performance as well as the fact that the use of the exchange token was increasing. The trend is favourable for bitcoin as well. Therefore, another upward move for Binance Coin may be the way forward, barring a BTC dip below $22.3k. Lower timeframe bullish sentiment gathers strength BNB's price is $44.0000000 (15.34%) above its 100-day moving average price of $286.790000000 as its price at the moment sits at $330.780000000. The current trading price in relation to its long-term average along with its 52-week high and low, gives BNB an average long-term technical score of 63. Long-term trading movement of BNB suggest that investors are neutral on the coin at the moment. BNB has a total market value of $52,230,903,062.37 with an high average daily volume of $4,213,665,495.84 worth of the currency exchanged over a typical 24 hour period. As of the past 24 hours, BNB's volume is below its average with $515,876,894.06 exchanged in total. BNB Coin Price will reach $360? When exactly a bullish breakout would start is unknown. The available data suggests that an upward shift is more probable. A drop below $321.5, which would turn the lower timeframe market structure bearish, would invalidate this theory. In this case, there can be a bullish response to a retest of the $315 level.  If the upgrades of the network manage to push the price action. Then we can expect the Binance coin price prediction to rally to $340.65 by the end of 2023 as per coinpedia.
