IG Historical Price Data Download on Mac Using API


Guest RichB-Trader

Question

Guest RichB-Trader

Hello,

 

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.

Hi,

 

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.

Hello,

 

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.

    • It's common knowledge that copy trading can yield lucrative returns with the right approach, and Bitget exchange has streamlined the process by offering access to top-tier traders to emulate.
    • The introduction of Altered State Machine (ASM) marks a significant development in the NFT space, introducing novel applications through AI integration. Collaborations with industry leaders like FIFA and Non Fungible Labs highlight the project's potential for success, especially with the forthcoming listing of $ASTO on Bitget exchange.
    • With how fast crypto is evolving, IQ wants to help make sense of it all for people. It's like a crypto Wikipedia with guides and resources explaining everything - NFTs, DeFi, blockchain basics, you name it. But with all the misinformation out there and AI like ChatGPT generating content, how useful are human-run knowledge platforms like IQ for getting reliable crypto info?  Here are some key things about IQ: - There's an IQ token that lets users contribute and vote on content. It's available on Bitget, binance and some dex..You can also stake the token for rewards. - IQ uses Polygon to record edits on the blockchain. This verifies the accuracy of information.  - AI is used in some areas like summarizing articles to simplify learnings. - An ecosystem of Web3 apps is in development, like IQ Code to audit smart contracts.  So what do you think about this community-run model with tokenized incentives? Does IQ strike the right balance between AI automation and human know-how? How important are services like this for cutting through the noise as AI content creation keeps advancing? I'd love to hear thoughts on this folks..
