I'm trying to consume REST API of IG.
I signed up for a demo account and went to the settings menu.
The issue is that I cannot find the API settings anywhere.

Please help!

Hi @metallm,

Thank you for your post.

Please note that if you’re having trouble setting up an API account through your demo, API accounts cannot be created from a standalone demo account unless that demo is linked to a live account.

To begin using our API:

1. Create a live account
2. Follow the My IG > Settings > API path
3. Generate your API key and security token
4. Practise building REST code using our sample apps, plus get more guidance on IG Labs
5. Start coding on any programme that supports HTTP

You can then use your IG demo account to practise using our APIs, with the unique username you created when setting up your API.

All the best,

    • Hey IG community! I'm considering investing in Ordi Coin and would love some advice. Does anyone have experience with it? Is it a good investment option? Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
    • That's an inspiring story; for a project to that almost got rugged now getting back to attracting investments and possible adoption, that's a huge positive. I did participate in the MON missions tho and we're still waiting for modalities of the airdrop distribution for missioners.
    • It's like having an extra pair of eyes watching the market for you. What I appreciate most about the prop firm ea is its reliability. It seems to make smarter decisions based on the strategies I've programmed. I also like how it handles the emotional aspect of trading—removing the human error part is a huge plus. One tip I can share is to spend time customizing the settings to match your trading style. It took me a while to find the right balance, but once I did, my trading performance improved significantly. Have you tried any specific settings or strategies with your prop firm EA that you found particularly effective?
