Lookup Prices in Excel


tradertoad

Question

Hello,

I would like to be able to look up prices for a range of stocks and instruments in excel so I can create alerts in my spreadsheet.  Can someone please point me in the right direction on how to do this.  I haven't been able to find out how on the IG Community forum or IG Labs help - I'm sure it's there I'm just struggling.  I got the historical value sample spreadsheet to work for individual items, but would like to be able to have last prices updated live or even end of day would be fine for a range of items in excel.

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks

Regards,

Michael

You can insert "Stock Connector" from office store in the excel.

Hi Michael,

I'm working on an Excel Add-in (http://www.excelpricefeed.com/) which enables streaming and retrieval of live prices from IG Index (as well as other data providers such as Yahoo/IEX). If you are interested I could send you a trial version so you can see if it can be useful to you. It's a work in progress so it's not quite finished and I haven't worked out pricing etc yet.

Let you know if you are interested.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Andy,

I would be very interested thanks, that sounds great.  The Yahoo feeds used to be great until they cut off international markets.  I've got google sheets to work somewhat and know IG have a live feed just haven't worked it out.  If there is a way to send a personal message or something then please do.

Cheers,

Michael

Thanks Seoudi, that works great for US stocks but doesn't seem to work for international stocks.  Thanks though all the same.

Cheers,

Hi,

The Add-in is now available and can be downloaded at: http://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/download

Contact me either via my website or private message and I can send you an Activation Code for a free 20 day trial.

The Add-in currently provides live and streaming prices to Excel cells via simple formulas such as: =EPF.IG.Stream.Bid("CS.D.GBPUSD.TODAY.IP")

I am looking at adding historical data access as well as other functionality depending on user feedback.

Hope you find it useful.

    • Hi does anybody know if there are any terms and conditions specific to the use of the Rest API?  In particular is it within the terms and conditions for me to use a third party application to open and manage trades on my account via the Rest and Streaming APIs    
    • ''Why it's almost like these 'vaccines' don't do the one thing vaccines are supposed to do...''  @JamesDelingpole An unvaccinated worker set off an outbreak at a U.S. nursing home where most residents were immunized. - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Reminder (from previous post) that SAGE expect of deaths in next wave 70% will be of those who have been vaccinated. Mostly because of age group but also because of Vaccine Enhanced Disease (also mentioned in a previous post). As in the video directly above, in animal studies in previous attempts to create gene altering vaccines ALL the ferrets died, usually on contact with the wild version of the virus between 3 and 12 months after vaccination which caused a fatal autoimmune response. (cytokine storm, so don't stop taking the vitamin D)   Meanwhile, the FT on India ...   Deaths, covid deaths and context. Data is nothing without context.   And a lookback at just what was possible and what was not? 🤔
