Streaming API stopped working this weekend


DavR0s

Question

Hi,

Just wanted to reach out to others that use the IG API as my ability to login to the Live platform started to error this weekend.

I have contacted tech support and it's still a live discussion but the answer I have rec'd today is that the problem is with Lightstreamer and the suggestion is I comment out all aspects of this so I can use other aspects of the API as an interim solution.  I have gone back and suggested this is not credible and to have a API not able to stream live prices is of no use.

I have spent 18months working to this API and I suspect others have spent a lot more.

Whilst typing this I received another update that the API team will look at a solution so maybe it will get resolved.

Anyone else using the API and similarly impacted by this?

Thanks David

Yes same here.  I had the same problem with accessing the Demo API about two weeks ago that then appeared on Live this weekend.  IG have now resolved the Demo streaming access so naturally assumed the Live would follow shortly - maybe it will.  Was just aghast that the suggestion is i comment out all streaming code as a short term solution.  An API without a live streaming price is not a functioning API as far as I am concerned.  So i have had to stop trading for the moment which is a right royal pain!

If its important to you and you havent already raised it with IG then please do as the more users do this the better chance it will get the focus it needs.  btw the first contact I had with IG on Monday was that it was all functioning correctly so be prepared for that reply!

I am implementing an own version of this api in C# and tried to use the latest version of lightstreamer (5.1 and above). They changed something that wont work anymore in combination with IG. I had to use version 5.0.5 or earlier.

https://github.com/Lightstreamer/Lightstreamer-lib-client-dotnet

I only tested it with my demo account today and it works fine. When they upgrade to the latest lightstream server than this could be a problem. I will try it later for my live account.

Streaming hasn't been working in my Excel product (https://www.excelpricefeed.com/) which uses the IG API for several weeks now.

However, I have just tried this morning and it is working on both demo and live, I have not changed any of my streaming code (C# with the DotNetClient_N2.dll) for several months.

I have just contacted IG API support, will post back here when they respond.

It took me 3days to determine it was a system wide issue which became clear about 6am when I had an update from IG.  I was originally told there was no general issue so assumed it was something specific to my account.  If people use the API id encourage people to help raise the profile.  I think they are on the case but I have no idea in the grand scheme where it is on the priority list.

The use of DotNetClient_N2.dll is the problem. It seems to be outdated and there is a new implementation of it at GitHub. The example implementation has the same problem for a few weeks.

IG - C# Example project at GitHub

I fixed the C# example in my fork so you can see what to change. Hope it helps.

I see the Demo API is once again not connecting - same message as Live.  It was fixed last Tuesday was running up until last night.

I have chased IG on the solution to live but have no idea where this is in their schedule.

So in the meantime what else is there out there that can provide inexpensive real time price streaming for indices?

I could probably use DDE off Sharescope but that would require me to update my delayed version to the full version.  Most other stuff ive seen is delayed so not much use.

Thanks

Just seen that I can access the Live streaming prices again (hooray! and many thanks to whoever has been at IG fixing this over the weekend).  Demo is still not connecting, but I can live with that short term.

Dont know if IG technical support frequent these pages but would be useful to know if this is fully fixed now so we can reliably trade as of tomorrow.

    • Gold Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Likely Double Zigzag Position -Wave 4 Direction - Wave 4 is still in play Details - Gold count adjusted to fit the sideways structure emerging for wave 4. The structure still supports further rallies. Gold has remained in a sideways range since the decline on April 12th, 2024. Despite this consolidation, the metal is poised for more gains and potentially a fresh all-time high. Gold is in a long-term bullish trend, with no significant bearish correction expected until the impulse cycle from September 2023 completes.   Daily Chart Analysis: Gold prices have been largely bullish, with a cycle degree impulse wave III emerging from 1810.5 in September 2023. Currently, the price is in a minor degree wave 4, which initially appeared to be a zigzag structure. However, the sustained sideways price action suggests this is a triangle structure for wave 4. Before the eventual breakout to the upside, Gold might make one more leg lower within the range. The goal now is wave 5.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of the emerging triangle structure, which is currently on the fourth leg - wave d (circled). Wave e (circled) should follow, but it should stay above 2286 to avoid invalidating the triangle structure. Thus, the invalidation level for this setup is 2286. Provided the price remains above that level, the potential for more upside is far greater. Wave 5 should reach at least the 2500 key psychological level.   Summary: Gold has been in a sideways range since the decline on April 12th, 2024, but is expected to make further gains and potentially reach a new all-time high. The long-term trend is bullish, with no significant bearish correction expected until the impulse cycle from September 2023 ends. On the daily chart, Gold is in a cycle degree impulse wave III from 1810.5, with the current minor degree wave 4 forming a triangle structure.   On the H4 chart, wave d (circled) of the triangle is in progress, with wave e (circled) expected next. The triangle structure remains valid as long as the price stays above 2286. If this level holds, the potential for more upside increases, with wave 5 likely to reach at least the 2500 level.

    • AVY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Avery Dennison Corp., (AVY) Daily Chart AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Motive POSITION: Wave {iii} of 5.   DIRECTION: Upside in wave {iii}. DETAILS: Looking for upside into wave 5, equality of 5 vs. 3 which in this case will stand as invalidation level, as wave 3 is currently shorter than 1, stands at 250$.     AVY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Avery Dennison Corp., (AVY) 4Hr Chart AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Motive POSITION: Wave (ii) of {iii}.   DIRECTION: Upside {iii}. DETAILS: Looking for minute wave {iii} to start unfolding, otherwise we could be in either a top in place, or else we could be forming an ending diagonal in wave 5.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Avery Dennison Corp. (AVY). This analysis provides an in-depth look at AVY's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on AVY's market behavior.   * AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Avery Dennison Corp. (AVY), we observe an impulsive trend pattern characterized by a motive structure. AVY is currently positioned in wave {iii} of 5, indicating a continuation higher within this wave sequence. The target level for the upside movement into wave 5 is the equality of wave 5 vs. wave 3, which stands at the $250 level. This target also acts as the invalidation level, as wave 3 is currently shorter than wave 1. Traders should monitor this level closely as it provides a critical threshold for potential wave completion and validation of the current wave structure.   * AVY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, AVY continues to follow an impulsive trend mode within a motive structure, specifically in wave (ii) of {iii}. The current analysis suggests an anticipated unfolding of minute wave {iii}, which would indicate further upside potential. However, if this wave does not start unfolding as expected, it could suggest that a top might already be in place, or alternatively, we could be forming an ending diagonal in wave 5.   This potential scenario should be watched for confirmation or invalidation to adapt trading strategies accordingly.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • Asian shares are ending the week lower after recent rallies. Yesterday on Wall Street the Dow made gains while Nvidia and other tech names came under short-term pressure. The dollar continues to strengthen, pushing the Japanese yen close to levels last seen in April, which then provoked a currency intervention. European markets are expected to open flat, while US futures show slight gains. The MSCI Asia-Pacific index fell 0.6%, led by a pullback in technology stocks. Japan's inflation slowed in May, complicating the outlook for interest rate hikes. Currency markets saw the euro, sterling, and Swiss franc fall against the US dollar. Today is dominated by flash PMIs from around the globe, including Germany, the UK and the US.
