How to programmatically find minimum trailing step?

Question

Hi there

Considering changing my platform to IG and familiarizing myself with the IG REST API. Is there a REST API method to find out the minimum trailing step? Is there also a way to set this value myself?

I have tried (GET /markets) for UC.D.NVDA.CASH.IP  (NVIDIA CORP) and I am able to find the minimum stop distance but not trailing step as per the below json snippet:

    "dealingRules": {
        "minStepDistance": {
            "unit": "PERCENTAGE",
            "value": 0.1
        },
        "minDealSize": {
            "unit": "POINTS",
            "value": 1.0
        },
        "minControlledRiskStopDistance": {
            "unit": "PERCENTAGE",
            "value": 10.0
        },
        "minNormalStopOrLimitDistance": {
            "unit": "POINTS",
            "value": 20.0
        },
        "maxStopOrLimitDistance": {
            "unit": "PERCENTAGE",
            "value": 90.0
        },
        "controlledRiskSpacing": {
            "unit": "POINTS",
            "value": 100.0
        },
        "marketOrderPreference": "AVAILABLE_DEFAULT_OFF",
        "trailingStopsPreference": "AVAILABLE"

 

At time of writing, the minimum stop distance as per the IG online platform is 20 which matches minNormalStopOrLimitDistance, but the minimum trailing step is 27 which I cannot find anywhere in any of the REST API methods.

 

Thanks in advance!

    • Hey fellow traders! I wanted to share some exciting news with you all regarding the AUDUSD currency pair. Over the past few days, I've been closely monitoring its movements, and I'm thrilled to report a significant development. The price has finally broken below the immediate support level at 0.6564, indicating a successful breakout. Now, here's the exciting part. The price is currently retracing towards this former support level, which has now transformed into a resistance zone. If the price fails to break and close above this resistance level, there is a high potential for a bearish push, with a target towards the major support at 0.6177. This presents a fantastic opportunity for us traders to profit from the downward movement, potentially gaining a massive 400 pips. Keep a close eye on the price action and watch for any signs of rejection at the resistance zone. If the bears take control, it could be a rewarding trade! Remember, always exercise caution and implement appropriate risk management strategies. Good luck and happy trading!
