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

I'm aware of this possibility but isn't there another way?

I want to work with it programmatically and would need a list giving ETF symbol with respective epic. It's not feasible to look up all epics by hand one by one.

    • How do I switch my account from CFD trading to share trading?
    • That USDJPY turn looks to be confirmed with a break of a potential ending channel in confluence with the Fib 50% and failed retest of the previous Pennant formation.  A solid bearish move on the last two daily candles of the week in line with a late stocks drop is boding well for a sustained medium term bearish phase for this pair.  This may be at odds with other pairs for a few days or so but I expect USD to turn bearish sometime next week, in which case I see this pair dropping hard, which would be in line with the EWT set up of a wave 3 down.  A continued period of stocks weakness would add to the momentum on this pair.
    • Looks like we are getting that relief rallyvon Gold and Silver, which is in line with my A-B-C retrace bearish move road map.  If this continues according to the road map then the current rally is a wave B.  When it concludes there will be a strong wave C down and this is the point to Short if the mood take you.  This is coinciding with both a short term rally on USD (DX) and a late bearish move on stock indices on Friday.  I expect the bearish stocks move to continue for a bit, especially on non US large caps to complete their wave Bs.  We may see a correlation conclusion of these wave Bs between stocks and precious metals.  I also think USD DX will rally a bit further, with GBPUSD in particular putting in a strongish bear move in a 1-2 retrace.  All the main USD pairs except with the Yen are likely to be bearish vs USD.
