Partial close less than 1

Question

I have been trading via the IG app but today decided to try the new platform on a laptop. How do I partially close a position, say a 1 point trade where that was the minimum, and I want to reduce it to .5 (half the minimum size.

Hi there! @gjo

To partially close a position, kindly navigate to the 'Positions' tab and click on 'close'. A box will pop up, allowing you to indicate the size you want to close. Please note that this feature only works if you don't have one-click trading enabled.

    • 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.
