error.public-api.exceeded-account-historical-data-allowance


SergioLage

Question

Hi, 

I am using REST API to get historical values (DAY resolution) so I can back test my trading algorithm. I am sure I haven't reach the 10,000 points / historical limit in this week, but I got this error and it seems I will have to wait for 7 days before being able to work with it again. It seems to me there is an issue with the 10,000 points. Is anyone else facing a similar problem with this limit?

Also, is there any plan to have a more flexible limit? I mean, limits related to rate and not to the amount of data?

 

Thanks!

Hi @SergioLage

Thanks for reaching out. 

You might have to retrieve one point of data and you will be able to see what's left of your allowance. But if you have used up all your data then the error historical allowance exceeded will confirm. 

We can only provide 10,000 points for all our clients. 

Thanks,

I see. But I used the "max" parameter to limit the number of returned points, so how this happened? It seems to me it something is not working ok. Could someone take a look? The URL I used is https://api.ig.com/gateway/deal/prices/CC.D.LCO.UMA.IP?resolution=DAY&from=2012-06-07T00:00:00&to=2020-12-31T00:00:00&pageSize=0&max=5

 

Also, in order to test the algorithms the DEMO account should be more flexible, and not the other way around. Any plans to have more flexibility in the DEMO account?

 

Thanks!

Hi @mattz00. I had to way for 7 days to be able to get the data again. I removed the "max" parameter and now I control the allowance by myself to avoid getting into this situation again. I still think there is a bug regarding this control. Also, it makes no sense to me having this in a demo environment, basically used to test the code and the algorithms we are developing. There are other ways to avoid issues regarding the infrastructure.

Hello,
I get this error when calling historical data via API :

Exception: error.public-api.exceeded-account-historical-data-allowance

However, both API companion (using the same credentials) reports 

            "remainingAllowance": 9450,
            "totalAllowance": 10000,
            "allowanceExpiry": 524396
and the Excel IG Web trading API allow me to call in historical data !!!
It must be my Python code right ?
How can I find out the problem if the reported error is "exceeding limits" ?
Here is the request to make sure I am not going mad.
Help please...
result = ig_service.fetch_historical_prices_by_epic(epic ="CS.D.EURUSD.CFD.IP", resolution ='D', numpoints=10)

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
