Support for Share Dealing/ISA API access?


AshleyN

Question

I would like to (if possible) use the API to pull all my transaction/trade history (ie every buy and sell I have ever made) for my Share Dealing and ISA accounts so I can then further analyse all my historical trade data and plot charts of total proffit loss across the years etc (rather than just the running p/l value IG gives you on your account) as well as create other analytics. I am not interested or needing to actually open/close positions.

Is there any support for this? 

Using IG API Companion and switching to my ISA account for example and trying to GET positions resulted in error.public-api.failure.stockbroking-not-supported

I know I could use the CSV transaction export file but it would be a lot cleaner and fluid to use an API

Hi @AshleyN,

You can reach out to webapisupport@ig.com for API support.

All the best - Arvin

The API is only available for Spreadbet and CFD accounts. That's why you get that error message.
