Finding the Epic of specific Instruments


NikoWe

Question

How do I find the epic of a specific list of tickers of US Stocks ? 

F.e I have a watchlist of stocks and I want to be able to call their respective data through the api. To do this I need the epics of said stocks. Why is it so complicated to find out the epics of these  stocks ? this seems super inefficient to me. 

The only options are either to cycle through literally every epic on ig which would take for ever Or to "Log In to ig and find the epics through the developer console". 

There has to be an easier way. Why is there no option in the api to display epic from ticker name ??

Also to add to this question. 

How stupid is it that you can't use indices correctly. 

Want to display all Epics of the Dax or SP for example ? Well good **** luck. You can either have the epic for the etf which trades the complete indices or you can literally piece it together yourself because ig only has nodes for markets like nyse or xetra .

    • Just now, according to Glassnode data, the number of addresses holding more than 100 BTC has reached a four-month low, currently standing at 15,955.
    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts? 
    • Traditional banking systems served as the gatekeepers of financial services for long, dictating how people access loans, save, and invest in opportunities. Typically controlled by a centralized system with a single authority such as a bank or government in total charge, this centralization is limited by high fees, restricted accessibility and slow transaction speed. Dentralized finance, DeFi, got introduced as a blockchain-based financial system that removes intermediaries or central authorities, and utilizes smart contracts instead. By eliminating intermediaries, DeFi delivers core benefits like improved accessibility into the financial system for everyone having internet connection regardless of their location. DeFi is also valued for its transparency. While traditional banking system often deny customers audits on how their assets are being managed, DeFi, through the help of blockchain allows anyone access to tracking and auditing transactions, thereby raising trust. Furthermore, DeFi also offers various financial services and products like DEX, lending and borrowing, stablecoins etc, all known to proffer varied innovative solutions, while operating 24/7 in contrast to traditional finance. DeFi isn’t flawless as issues like insecurity, lack of consumer protection etc are still prevalent; however, the growth of DeFi has been impressive; since its introduction, the total value locked in DeFi protocols has grown significantly indicating that the demand for DeFi services is fast growing. DeFi seems to be redefining financial industry by offering an alternative to traditional banking systems. With the increasing adoption, can we expect to see an overhaul in the way we access financial services?
