Do dividend adjustments get posted to the history in a DEMO account?




With Spread betting/ CFD accounts when trading a forward contract for shares the dividend is built in so you will not see an adjustment, this is the same for futures contracts for indices. 

When trading Cash markets you will see a dividend adjustment. If you hold a short position you will gain from the market movement therefore should see a debit on the account. If you hold a long position you will lose from the market movement therefore should see a credit on the account.

Help with dividend adjustments

These should reflect on your demo account transactions.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
