Place 'MARKET' order with IG-API



Is there any way to place market order using API?

I get this error when I follow IG-documentation on placing market order:


currency_code = "USD"
direction = "BUY"
order_type = "MARKET"
expiry = "-"
guaranteed_stop = False


error message:

    raise IGException(response.text)
trading_ig.rest.IGException: {"errorCode":"invalid.request.type"}


Is there something I'm missing here?

For me the only thing working is order_type = 'BUY'
