    Request snapshot via API

    Well after the webapisupport replied that they could not help me I simply kept on testing until I found the solution. An URL of the following type gives the snapshot: https://api.ig.com/gateway/deal/markets?epics=CS.D.EURSEK.CFD.IP&filter=SNAPSHOT_ONLY

    Problem solved. Can be deleted.
  3. You should be able to set such alerts via the IG platform.
  4. Hi Vonasi, This is Despair. Are you still stuck with PRT? Don't you see what is going on? Nicolas is as usual blaming all on IG while it is probably PRT that screws up. I can only recommend you to leave PRT and use IG's API instead. This will generate quite some work in the beginning but it is worth it! My life has become so much better since I stopped using PRT. You have so much more possibilities and are not exposed to PRT's permanent errors (you are lucky now that all this affects only your demo strategies but going live with proorder is not much better - continuous errors that finally will result in financial loss and PRT not taking responsibility will not compensate you). I earn significantly more money now compared with what I did with PRT and I'm running the same strategies!!
  5. I found in the rest API reference that one can specify to receive "SNAPSHOT_ONLY" when requesting market details via the API. This seems to be very useful since requesting the full market details is quite a lot of data one often does not need. However I have problems to make this work. Also this function doesn't seem to exist in the rest API companion, so no help there either. Could one give an example URL how such a request should look like? Requesting full market details works without problems.
  6. Just to add my experience. I closed my UK account and opened a new account at IG Switzerland. I was treated by IG Switzerland as if I was a new customer, so I had to go through the usual ID verification (I expected this, so no problem with that). Since then I have been happy customer of IG Switzerland and did not experience any further problems or limitations.
  7. It would be very useful if the function would be integrated in the platform to show the epic of some underlying. I'm aware of that it shows in the URL if you open a chart in a detached window but it would be nice to be able to look it up in a proper way without searching in an URL.
