Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG?

I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?

We have this tool which may be of use https://etfscreener.ig.com

With US ETFs it's worth remembering that there may be some which you can't trade (based on your personal circumstance). That screener should show you all the ones we currently offer. If you would like one which isn't on the list, let us know and we can look to add.

Thanks James, this was of great help. Where can I find the epic for each ETF so I can trade it via the API?

If you were to click the three line menu and 'open market in new window'...


You can then see the epic in the top URL

This  IG site, dated today, lists the margin requirements for ETFs traded by retail clients and includes many US-domiciled ETFs. The site also lists separately the margin requirements appropriate to professional clients. Therefore it would seem that retail clients are permitted to buy US ETFs, is this correct? I also note that on the dealing tickets the US- domiciled ETFs have KIDs (Key In formation Documents) and therefore comply with the PRIIPS regulations for retail clients.
