Looking to connect with a Python developer. Struggling with the API.



I have managed to write a simple Python script that can login and execute trades. If there are any beginners out there who want me to share my code and a quick explanation please let me know. You can actually login, execute a trade and confirm that the trade has been executed with about 50 lines of code and without dependencies. So that could be useful for people who don't want to deal with the complexity of the projects on github.  

Unfortunately, I am struggling with the following: 

(1) How to delete working orders based on trade ID.

(2) How to close positions based on trade ID.

(3) How to stop myself getting rate-limited (meaning I often need to run the script several times just to get the IG servers to respond and  execute the trade). 

I am looking to connect with Python developers who have defeated these problems. This could involve me paying somebody for their expertise. It could involve working on problems together. Maybe there are some legendary people out there who are just happy to help.

    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
    • @MongiIG Hi - You recently covered Long NICKEL Trading the Trend and A. Rudolf did this morning but I see it is Closing only. Please clarify, Thanks D600
    • At the expire date IG sell/buy price is 93.8/94.95 and Bloomberg price is 92.12 Assume I bought at 100.0 If I close the trade myself I lose (100-93.8) = 6.2 If the trade expires I lose (94.95-93.8) + (100-92.12) = 1.15 + 7.8 = 9.03 Is that right?
