IG Historical Price Data Download on Mac Using API

I am trying to use API to download historical data from IG. I have seen a video on how to use Microsoft Excel to do this on a Windows machine. However I am running a Mac, and really don't want to install Windows as it will cost a lot of money and be in efficient switching between OS. I have even tried running Excel for Mac however because it is a .msi file my Mac will not open it.


Has anybody had any joy downloading historical data from IG using a Mac? 


Any hep would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, just tried doing that but you need a windows machine to do it (typical). Going to try Python, see if I can get anywhere with that. Thanks for all your help.

Just posting on the community a follow up to help other people. Having spent, far too much, time on this, I can confirm IG do not let you get their data for equities through any API. This is because they do not own the data, Reuters do. You can get the IG data for currencies however. FYI Reuters basic HLOC, Volume etc. data is around £350 per month having spoken to them if it helps. 


However in Apple Numbers you can use a formal to search a stock price which is pretty accurate. Doesn't include pre and post market (which I will be asking a question about in another post). Thanks.

    • In my opinion, higher lev is for scalpers only! For day or swing traders, either spot or lower lev is always recommended!
    • Just now, according to Glassnode data, the number of addresses holding more than 100 BTC has reached a four-month low, currently standing at 15,955.
    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts?
