Question: 'Working Orders' - How to Successfully Utilise and how to Activate Correctly to have Trade Ready for 'Market Open' etc....


Trader1

Question

Good evening, or morning where ever we are in the world.... I'm new to IG... always took keen interest in the markets and I see the 'working orders' (option) as an interesting and intriguing way to add to 'our' community strings and additional ways to trade....

I'm don't really know how this works 'working orders', how its set-up and how to IMPLEMENT it successfully... Apologies in advance if the question is silly but with a novis to this I would like to successfully use the working orders to home in on how to capitalise on the opening of a commodity or stock/company share on opening bell with the anticipated open of either the 'long or short' direction. 


'working orders' for opening bell i am finding as scouring the IG website, platform pages etc there doesn't seem much information and official examples of how to improve or be successful at this trading method to expand

If someone on the forum has knowledge, patience and if they can show how to successfully to use that would be most kind on information to bottom down to be fully knowledgable of 'working orders' usage and also to supply me details...
how to find out what the margin/slippage is for each stock when implementing a 'working order' for opening bell etc as the 'Demo account executes it perfectly approx 80% of the time but when using my real hard earned money (£££) the 'live' platform doesn't seem as margin efficient and/or doesn't give information to tighten a traders educated trade with lack of information to a provision on the platform they want traders to use in their portfolio as an extra way to trade during the working day.

 Thank you and kind regards in advance...

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
