FSTE 100 Plagued by Weak GDP Data, Political Missteps and Rising Yields

The FTSE 100 remains vulnerable to downside risk as traders and investors eye key dates later this month. The Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey confirmed that Friday marks the last day the Bank stands ready to intervene in the bond markets in an attempt to quell reports of the possibility of an extension. As discussed earlier by Nick Cawley in his GBP update, the end to the Bank’s support sets a target for those who wish to test the BoE’s resolve. UK central bankers’ jobs have been made even tougher after August GDP figures revealed a shock decline in growth – something the new Prime Minister is looking to tackle head on.

After calming the longer-dated UK bond markets via direct purchases by the central bank, the 30-year government yield in on course to test the recent high - around 6 basis points away at the time of writing – which may see the Bank step up efforts once more.

    • 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.
