  1. Hi, does anyone know IG's merchant category code (MCC) ? If I fund my account (spread betting or ISA) with my credit card, does the credit card provider classify this as a cash advance or a purchase? Best Dan
  2. Agree, interesting topic. Just received this in my inbox from the Motley Fool UK: https://www.fool.co.uk/order/nm1211192018mmuk-nb Anyone got any insights into what the TOP 6 marijuana “Buy” recommendations could be? I'm guessing those candidates are somewhere amongst them: Aurora Cannabis Inc - US Canopy Growth Corporation (US) Cronos Group Inc - US Aphria Inc (US) Dan
  3. Hi Cryptotrader, so in the USA the brokers seem to show data during the night all the way until the market re-opens again. So you already know where the stock will open before it actually opens. Where IG stops showing any data and starts again the next morning at 8am and all you see is a big gap, but no information about per market highs and lows, etc Is this a thing only in the US or also possible at the LSE? How do you identify an overnight gapper before the market opens in the UK?
  4. Thanks WillA Are there any other tools or websites available which show pre-market data? I tried to find an answer on the internet today, but it seems like nobody is providing pre-market data for the London Stock Exchange. Is this maybe not supported at all as it is common in the US stock markets? Does anybody know if you sign-up in IG for the Level 2 data access if you get pre-market data? (Level 2 access: provides a live price feed and extensive market depth, where applicable) How do people trade gap strategies in the UK? Best Dan
  5. Solved it. Have changed my default account to my ISA, apparently, the API stops working then. Changed it back to my Spreadbet account and all good. Dan
  6. Currently getting this error with the REST API. Anyone else experiencing the same? Anyone know what's broken? Dan
  7. Thanks Caseynotes Is this L2 Trading Platform usable for spread betting accounts though as it says on the page you've linked "open a CFD or share dealing account with IG"?
  8. Hi, I'm using ProRealTime with my IG Spreadbetting account and am wondering if it is possible to get access to Level 2 data? It seems ProRealTime generally has a functionality to display the data (called the order book: https://www.prorealtime.com/en/help-manual/display-order-book) however the data stream seems to show past transactions per price level, but not active orders. Best Dan
  9. Hi, I'm using ProRealTime with my IG Spreadbetting account and am wondering if there is any chance to access Pre Market data for UK shares? e.g. can I run a screener showing me the biggest gappers before the market actually opens? Best Dan
  10. Ahhrg, glad someone else has the same problem. I was breaking my head over my code today. Yesterday morning everything worked just fine, then this morning nothing returned properly... When will this be fixed please?
