Historical Data


Noizy

Question

Hello!

Can anyone tell me how to get historical tick data from IG? Unfortunately, the existing data only goes back to 1990 on the daily chart. The API that exists doesn't seem to work for me either.

kind regards,

Noizy

There is no tick data on IG, the lowest resolution is second. See the question "How much historical price data can I get for different resolutions?" on this page:

The IG platform is not good for capturing historical data anyway, due to the rate limitations (see the Limits section on the same page). You would be better off getting price data elsewhere, and just using IG for trading

Thanks for the reply. Yes, unfortunately it's not that exciting. I thought a broker as big as IG could give you better data here. Your tip is good. I also use the tick data from Dukascopy, but in this case it doesn't help me because the strategy I want to backtest is tailored exclusively to IG. 🤔

    • As more users embrace Dapp, it gets easier to trade crypto, engage in DeFi lending/borrowing and trade NFTs. With the growing need to trade NFT comes the introduction of Love Power Movement, a transparent and accessible marketplace with the best conditions for successful NFT sales. Although the NFT sector has recorded significant growth, it's still impeded by challenges like low protection of artists' and buyers' data, absence of organised policy protecting sellers and buyers amongst others. Love Power aims to tackle those by offering fixed commissions and royalties to creators, ensuring proper profit for sales. LPM token forming a crucial part of the ecosystem has been launched with no presale and VC investment, with intent to direct proceeds from token sales to NFT artists. As $LPM prepares to list on Bitget, the vast community of Love Power Movement would surely be watching keenly.
    • I missed out on NOTCOIN airdrop though i took advantage to buy it at $0.05 when it dipped and in a short while it rose back to $0.2. Made some decent gains there and I'm still holding. I will explore the giveaway to boost my NOTCOIN portfolio on the cex. Right now, my focus on the pre-market trading for hamster on Bitget, I want to make the best use of the Hamster airdrop I'm anticipating.
