  1. Hi, I've built an Excel Add-in which makes this very easy. You can also download your transaction and activity history, more details here: https://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/positions-trade-history-download-excel-ig-index Here is an example of live positions in Excel using the Add-in: I hope this helps.
  2. Equity indices all positive this morning, especially the DAX and CAC (I suspect following agreement on the EU support package). GBP stronger, EUR little changed: Powered by https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  3. It's working for me on Live but not on Demo.
  4. I am now seeing this problem as well (it was working for me last week). The /gateway/deal/accounts endpoint is returning a server 500 error: {"errorCode":"error.client.accounts.list.generic-error"} It is broken on both the demo and prod API. @CharlotteIG Can somebody at IG look into this as a matter of urgency? Thanks.
  5. I agree, a clock would be useful. However, I use the updated time on a liquid market in my watchlist to see the time. Prices in S&P500, DJIA etc are updated every second so the last update time is good enough for me (web platform only though as updated time is not an option in the mobile app).
  6. Hi, I'm a developer with experience of the IG API. Can you provide a quick overview of what you are trying to achieve? Cheers.
  7. You can get share prices, well at least for spread bet and CFD accounts, via the REST API (not streaming). I think the text you quoted is for share accounts. I have just tried UC.D.NFLX.CASH.IP and I can query the bid/offer via the API. I use the API for my Excel Add-in and that also works fine for retrieving stock prices into Excel.
  8. You could look at the historical data that IG provides as it includes their bid and ask prices. They provide various resolutions of data from 1 second upwards, for various time periods. I guess you could cross reference the time of your trades with a historical data request to give you the data you require.
  9. Stock indices positive this morning, FX flat and oil down. IG clients short the major indices and very bullish on gold: Built using https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  10. Hi, I've built an Excel Add-in which you can use to easily download your positions (as well as other account, price data etc.) into Excel. You could use it to quickly calculate average price as well as other parameters: https://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/positions-trade-history-download-excel-ig-index I hope this helps!

  12. There was a major outage on February 24th, not sure about March although I do remember there being at least two fairly close together. Check this page for the latest status: https://status.ig.com/
  13. Yep, complete outage, details here: https://status.ig.com/
  14. Yes, I have built an Excel Add-in that you can use. Here, for example, is the IG daily timeseries 2002 for GBPUSD. More details on my website: https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  15. You need to take into account the premium you have paid. For example if you bought the put at say 30 then you would need to the index to close below 2830 to make a profit (strike 2860 minus 30 premium).
