Error message : Exception: unauthorised.access.to.equity.exception


Majoka

Question

Hi, I have an API key and it seems to be working. For example, I can run the following command on my Python console and get a result. 

results = ig_service.search_markets("bhp")
results

But when I try to run this, it gives me an exception error: unauthorised.access.to.equity.exception

from trading_ig import IGService
from trading_ig.config import config
 
class config(objectūüėě
    username = "xx"
    password = "xx"
    api_key = "xx"
    acc_type = "xx"
    acc_number = "xx"
 
ig_service = IGService(config.username, config.password, config.api_key, config.acc_type)
ig_service.create_session()
 
# Fetch close prices for BHP from IG Markets
epic_id = "AA.D.BHP.CASH.IP"
resolution = "D"
num_points = 10
 
response = ig_service.fetch_historical_prices_by_epic_and_num_points(epic_id, resolution, num_points)
close_prices = [float(price["closePrice"]["bid"]) for price in response["prices"]]
 
print(close_prices)
 
open_positions = ig_service.fetch_open_positions()
print("open_positions:\n%s" % open_positions)
 
Can you please help?

Your Epic is wrong, it should be "AA.D.BHP.DAILY.IP".

If you are new to the Python library, or to the IG REST API, it would be a good idea to use the IG API companion at first. It is much harder to make mistakes with the companion

Have you tried "AA.D.BHP.DAILY.IP" on the companion? I've got the same error message.

 

I remember there was very old thread saying IG does not support equity history price over APIs. Looks still the case now.

Yes, and it works fine for both the market info and historic price endpoints:

Hi, 

  Thanks for the reply. But this is really weird:

  • market info DOES work, on the¬†IG API companion page (the endpoints string displayed at the top of the page, under 'URL' section).
  • However, if I try "Historic Price Search" from the left pane of the page, I've got the same error code as below:
    • "errorCode": "unauthorised.access.to.equity.exception"
  • ¬† Again, I've got identical endpoints as yours, showing at the top 'URL' field¬†:

  

   I've tried Python version of IG REST API too (trading-ig). Exactly same behaviour.

 

  I really don't think IG offer access to Equities via the APIs  (including historic data) - however, anywhere we can confirm this???

You cannot use the APIs with share dealing, ISA or SIPP accounts. The APIs only work with spread betting and CFD accounts.

You can use the APIs to trade equities (and view historic prices) with spread betting or CFD accounts.

    • After rallying on Monday, the Nikkei 225 led the Asian session lower overnight, reversing hopes that losses for Japan had been halted. Rising yields across the globe have driven losses in stocks, though US stocks struggled into positive territory at the close yesterday as some of the selling pressure of the past week eased. However, the theme of higher yields is likely to continue to keep pressuring stocks, resulting in more losses in what is often a difficult period of the year for equities anyway. US lawmakers continue efforts to try and find a short-term funding solution that will avoid a government shutdown. Futures point to a weaker open for Europe and the US, with little heavyweight macro data to detract from the focus on higher yields.¬† ¬†
