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.

    • Mercury, of course, how you label your wave counts is entirely up to you. Corrective waves (according to EWT) are in the following form: ZigZags, Flats (Regular & Expanded) & Triangles. Complicated corrections are usually a combination. A common one is a double Zig-Zag. Triangles can often found in wave 4 or B but never wave 2. Motive waves are usually pretty simple to spot even for a novice. The problem always occur with corrections in my experience. Knowing the substructure count is critical in that respect. ZigZag (5-3-5), Flat (3-3-5), Triangle (3-3-3-3-3). There is often an alternative count (although one will always be preferred) and only subsequent price action reveals which is correct. There are a few rules, but really not many, and some guidelines. With respect Mercury there is no rule nor guideline that I have ever seen that says "the move does not penetrate above the previous high" for a corrective wave!! For those that don't have the time nor inclination you can subscribe to various services. In the hands of an expert, when combined with Fibonacci ratios, trend lines and sentiment indicators it is, IMHO, a powerful tool. 
    • Actually I thought Corrigan was pretty good and pretty much spot on in his general take on a multitude of economic topics, there was no political agenda and of course it was his view so to get balance -er, find someone else with a different econ view?
    • Good piece on copper here from CME focusing on it's strong links with the Chinese economy and the very low current implied volatility. "Copper closely tracks growth in China, yet copper options prices tend to be closely related to U.S. monetary policy. How will Fed rate cuts impact the metal?
