Search not working in demo, can't make a transaction in demo either

I'm using demo API and search results stopped showing in JSON response. They also don't show in web client

markets: []


After switching to live account it looks like it's working fine.


Back to demo API. I tried using epic code directly to make a transaction but I'm getting this mysterious error:


"errorCode: 'unauthorised access, insufficient view permissions. Epic=SI.D.NGDUS.DAILY.IP exchangeId=EQ_US_AMX viewPermission=OFF'"

When you open a demo account with IG you would only have datafeeds on shares active for 14 days, once these feeds expire, you would have no access to prices from the exchange and as a result you would be unable to place trades on any shares.


We are unfortunately not able to reset this datafeed so to get prices on shares you would need to use the live account. If you require assistance with API matters then please use the contact us section from this link as this is the designated channel for API queries.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
