Demo account API?

Question

Been trying to generate an API key for a demo account, and have been searching for how to do this but can't seem to find any way to achieve this. Does anyone know if this is indeed still possible, and if so how I would go about generating the key?

ok, to answer this for other people.  You enable a CFD account before you see the API KEYS.

can you add a screen shot.  I've created my demo account and have opened the web platform and opened the demo platform.  

I don't see "my account".

I do see settings, but not see anywhere to enter an API KEY or generate a new key.

I see this page... I do not have the line
API Keys or anything below it.

@Jimmy423,  ok, not sure why that would be, possibly a technical problem as the others in the list would also seem important on any account type.

On the 'Contact Us' page the chat function is not open on the weekends but may be worth using the 'Send us a query' function while waiting as maybe some else on the forum may know the answer.

No problem @Jimmy423,  hope it gets sorted soon. You might also be interested in this video if you haven't seen it already. ps, the demo is using the old web based platform not the new one but same thing.

Hi. sorry, don't have a solution but just to say- I'm in the same boat. Have spent 2 hours wandering around the website but couldn't find it anywhere. I thought I saw it in the past but I might have imagined it.

Solution: Sign up for a demo-CFD account (as well as just the share account) and these additional options will appear.

These options do not seem to be appearing for me, and I have done just as you said above.

Do I also need to create a live CFD account for the options to appear?? Not too keen on this 😕

Appreciate any help!

Cheers

Can't seem to see a FAQ on generating an API Key....

Also, the instructions on 'getting started' for generating an API Key are for the old platform.  The new platform does not seem to have these options

Hi,

The option to get an API key is not available for me either when I go to Settings. I have a live account, not a demo account. I am based in the U.S. and the account was opened last week.

Thank you,

Matt

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
