blocker - REST Trading API limits!

Question

Guest qsc-sydney

Hi IG team, community, 

I am reaching out via this forum as email/phone based support requests have gotten me nowhere and I feel others might experience the same impact to their trading.

All of my trade activity take place over the REST API, spread out over three different base currency CFD accounts. My apps are java/spring boot based, nothing too exotic.

The current API trade request limit of 100 calls per minute (https://labs.ig.com/faq#limits) is crippling me and stopping me from increasing trading volumes and accessing new markets, so much so I am looking at moving all of my trading to Interactive Brokers (who don't appear to have any API limits). Currently my monthly volumes are approx 25-30mil, but would easily be 3-5 times that if the API call limit was closer to 300-400 requests per minute.

IG team is there anyway the API call limit can be increased, either via feature or special request? Perhaps on a case-by-case basis?

- Further can a API call request increase be considered/urged with the technology teams as this is impacting users and inhibiting more trading volume?

Is there anyone in the community who has the same impact to their trading? Have you been able to resolve the limit issue or had it addressed by IG?

This is my last resort to get some traction on this issue before packing up and relocating my trading else where, there is a easy solution for this - one which would be a win-win for both IG and traders like myself.

Let me know;

Regards, qsc-sydney

    • Asian-Pacific stocks traded mostly flat to start the week, with light weekend newsflow focused on geopolitics. In Europe, equity futures point to a lower open after gains on Friday. The calendar this week focuses on inflation , with Japan kicking off the world tour of price data today. This is followed up by US PCE data on Wednesday, German CPI on Thursday and then the eurozone reading on Friday. While today begins quietly on the earnings front, UK earnings crowd the rest of the week, taking over from the US as reporting season there enters its final weeks.   
    • NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day  Chart, 26 February 24 New Zealand Dollar/U.S.Dollar (NZDUSD) Day Chart NZDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION:   Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Blue wave 1 POSITION:  Black wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: Blue wave 2 DETAILS:black wave 2 looking completed at 0.60363 .  Now blue wave 1 of black  wave 3  is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.60512 The "NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart" dated 26 February 24, provides a comprehensive analysis of the New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar (NZDUSD) currency pair on a daily timeframe, employing Elliott Wave principles to discern potential market movements. The designated "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating the primary objective is to identify and capitalize on the prevailing market direction. In this context, the focus is on capturing impulsive waves that define the strength and persistence of the overarching trend. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," signaling a market environment characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. This suggests that the current phase in the market is conducive to identifying and participating in the primary trend. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Blue wave 1," denoting the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of a larger impulsive move, typically marking the beginning of a new trend. The identified "POSITION" is "Black wave 3," indicating the current position within the broader Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the most dynamic and extended wave in the sequence, reflecting a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Blue wave 2," suggesting the anticipated corrective phase following the completion of black wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "black wave 2 looking completed at 0.60363. Now blue wave 1 of black wave 3 is in play." This suggests the conclusion of a corrective phase (black wave 2) and the initiation of the next impulsive move (blue wave 1 of black wave 3). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512, serving as a critical reference point. A breach beyond this level would invalidate the current wave count and prompt a reevaluation of the analysis. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the daily chart on 26 February 24, indicates a continuation of the impulsive move, with blue wave 1 of black wave 3 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of blue wave 1 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512.       NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour  Chart, 26 February 24 New Zealand Dollar/U.S.Dollar (NZDUSD) 4 Hour Chart NZDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION:   Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: red wave 3   POSITION:  Blue wave 1 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: red wave 4 DETAILS:red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512 .  Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1  is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.60512 The "NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart" dated 26 February 24, presents a detailed analysis of the New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar (NZDUSD) currency pair using Elliott Wave principles. The focus is on a 4-hour chart, allowing for a more granular examination of price movements. The identified "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating that the analysis aims to capture the prevailing direction in the market. This suggests an interest in identifying and riding the impulsive waves that contribute to the overall trend. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," signaling that the current market conditions are characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. Impulsive waves typically indicate the primary trend's strength and persistence. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Red wave 3," highlighting the current position within the larger Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the strongest and longest phase of the Elliott Wave cycle, representing a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. The designated "POSITION" is "Blue wave 1," indicating the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of the larger trend cycle and marks the beginning of a new impulsive move. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Red wave 4," suggesting the anticipated correction or consolidation phase following the completion of red wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512. Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1 is in play." This indicates the conclusion of a corrective phase (red wave 2) and the commencement of the next impulsive move (red wave 3 of blue wave 1). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512. This level serves as a crucial reference point, beyond which the current wave count would be considered invalid. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-hour chart on 26 February 24, suggests a continuation of the impulsive move, with red wave 3 of blue wave 1 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of red wave 3 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512. Technical Analyst : Malik Awais
