  1. The native PRT function for volume profile needs real volume what IG doesn't offer so I do not think you can activate it. This was at least the situation when I asked for it 2 years ago.
  2. The IG Labs API forum is literally drowning in spam again! The lack of maintenance there is really a shame. 😔
  3. Give IG a call and they will fix it for you (been there, done that).
  4. The platforms probably use a different time for the close hence show different values for the MA.
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks James, this was of great help. Where can I find the epic for each ETF so I can trade it via the API?
  7. And you are talking about the search box of the trading platform?
  8. 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?
  9. I found a usable csv for US stocks at: http://www.rightline.net/calendar/ I'm still searching for a similar list for FTSE 350 stocks.
  10. Does anybody know where I can download an earnings calendar for 2019 in CSV format? Especially I'm looking for the earnings dates of stocks listed in the S&P 500 and FTSE 350.
  11. You are correct, neither IG's version, nor PRT premium show your account balance and so on. This shortcoming has been known for a long time. Why it is the way, I can't tell.
  12. I think PRT will not charge you a monthly fee but I strongly recommend you NOT to use PRT's auto trading with real money. It's faulty and will sooner or later loose your money because of platform errors. When this happens PRT will not compensate you stating you were using it on your own risk. It costed me over 1500 USD to find this out. Use IG's API instead. This works stable and you will only lose your money because of your bad strategy and not because of platform errors. 😉
  13. I'm searching for a list of the FTSE350 companies that also gives the (super)sector for each stock. 10-11 sectors would be perfect like financials, healthcare and so on.
  14. Hi Andy, I can confirm the the API works with IG Switzerland. Some responses come in german. This is the only difference I noticed so far.
  15. 1.) I think you can not place trades with IG through trading view. 2.) All profits you earn will be automatically exchanged to the base currency of your account. Not really sure if this was your question though.
  16. This is why I stopped using PRT. I had a strategy running live with great profit for more than 6 months without any problems. Then a platform error caused a loss of about 1500 USD. PRT refused to refund me for this loss though it was a bug in PRT that obviously caused the loss saying I used PRT on my own risk. This is where I decided to leave and I never regret this decision.
  17. You can have the account in switzerland in the base currency you prefer. I have mine in SEK for example. @JinGin: I didn't try to keep mine but if Sunny Days can have two I'd assume that you also can.
  18. I have moved my trading to IG Swiss. Was no problem at all. I simply closed my account and opened a new one with IG Switzerland.
  19. If you are serious about auto trading have a look at IG's API. This works very stable for me.
  20. No need to look overseas, just outside the EU is enough. Switzerland would be an alternative for example.
  21. Sounds really strange. Usually stop/limit orders in PRT's auto trading are only valid for the next bar. So if you don't repeat your order every bar again it should vanish after only one bar. But this might be just another example why you shouldn't use PRT's auto trading with real money. It is a nice looking feature on the first glance but it is faulty and has many bugs that will sooner or later result in you loosing money if you try to run strategies live with it. However PRT is quite nice for constructing custom indicators and also useful to make a fast backtest of an idea.
  22. You can download IG's data through their API. Here you find some infos. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=539 I think there is also a video online concerning this topic. You should find it searching the forum.
  23. Anybody with an IG account and basic programming knowledge can do so. The client sentiment is easy to retrieve via the API. So you can program your own little tool to show all the sentiments you want to see, rank them or do whatever you desire.
