New account Taking Way more than expected time, Still waiting from more than a week.


Recommended Posts

I have applied for a new account with IG, and my application shows a 'Pending' status on my IG account. I have called at least 5-6 times to IG customer support and every time I was told we were doing a Background check. Even though I haven't uploaded any address proof or so. I asked the customer agent if any document was pending from my side. But again, the same answer that my background check is pending. I am using 4-5 accounts with other brokers for shares, Fx, and crypto. But never took that long to open an account with other brokers. Is that background that you guys are saying takes that long?

    • 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.
