API use for Share Dealing

Question

Hi

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

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.

    • “In France, the government caved to pressure from a doctor who ran his own very small and rapid trial of the drug combined with an antibiotic in 26 people, using methodology that has been seriously criticised. Dr Didier Raoult, a professor of infectious diseases who works at La Timone hospital in Marseille, then declared in a video on YouTube that chloroquine was a cure for Covid-19 and should be used immediately.“ You can hardly call a trial with 26 people statistically significant considering 660k confirmed cases worldwide thus far and 30k deaths.
    • Has anyone noticed the strange behaviour of Bitcoin price at  8pm Friday until 8am Saturday? I'm new so could someone explain the gap in the chart, displayed in the screenshot attached. Some Fridays the chart stops for 12hrs and other Fridays for 7 hours, can you execute trades during these periods,  I thought crypto was 24/7.
