API use for Share Dealing

Question

Hi

Is it possible to use the API on share dealing accounts, rather than just SB and CFDs?

Hi, no SB and cfd only and not on shares. See https://labs.ig.com/

Thanks, is there any reason for this? 

Only that it's linked to leverage accounts only same as the DMA platform, whether it uses DMA I'm not sure, you can trade shares on API but only on a SB or CFD account.

Not actual share dealing (Only IG Internal Politics would know that) as such but it works perfectly fine for Spread Betting, I have created a lot of examples for this and released the code. Check my profile if you want.

Thanks, I wondered about that after I wrote it as I didn't remember seeing it on the IG Labs list.

    • Thank you JamesIG for your explanation of how IG determine their price charts. "This means there will always be a discrepancy with the highly publicized index price" ... Yes that is also noted but your company "interpretation" has the low 9 days before the other outlets. However you want to spin (explain) it. That makes it incredibly difficult to ascertain what a real low is.....is it the one you show or the one the others show? It also, at least to me, appears that best practise would be served if the resulting price chart reflects the index it purports to follow/promote. EWT users ( I follow a US analyst) will know the frustration. His DOW chart shows a different low....and therefore a different count. Tongue in cheek.....so when was the recent low in the past two weeks?
