Data Export TXT CSV API

I need is an occasional  snapshot of my ISA account positions.


I have tried using the REST API and all that but cannot even login to the API companion! Yes, all set up under Production and have an API key etc, login details are correct, I use them every morning! The message is 

"errorCode": "service.clientsecurity.error.authentication.stockbroking-not-allowed-for-public-api"


It's all rather sledgehammer to crack a nut if you ask me.


A simple downloaded CSV file would do the job just fine! Any chance of that happening?

There are no share prices available when using the public API, the public API would also not be available for Share-dealing accounts as a result. What you can try is to create a demo account  (such as CFD), and then generate a key from the demo which you would be able to use to log into the demo API environment.


For API Related matters please use this community site http://labs.ig.com/community

I have exactly the same request as Andrew , I also tried the APi in excel and got the same message - 7 months later.

If the API does not support share dealing accounts - how do you recommend that we export positions.

Many thanks

    • 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?
