Any idea why when about to trade any counter, there will be a error message: IG is not accepting opening trades on this market...."

Hi @shazamnick,

It is likely that the market is on closing only, meaning you can only close open positions and not open new ones. Could you please clarify which markets you were after?

Thank you - Arvin

I have come across the same problem for Cryptocurrency - NEO and ASX - CAN. I would like to place my trade as soon as possible.

Thank you.


It seems that ASX CAN in only available on Share dealing accounts:
For NEO, it seems to be on closing only.

You can find this type of information on the dealing ticket in the "Other" Section as above.

Thank you - Arvin

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
