  1. It's working for me on Live but not on Demo.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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!

  10. 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/
  11. Yep, complete outage, details here: https://status.ig.com/
  12. 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
  13. 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).
  14. Yep, it's ridiculous, it's full of conspiracy theories and links to dodgy websites, just ignore it.
  15. Hi @icarus666 I've built an Excel Add-in which connects to IG and enables you to download your trade history, positions, P&L etc into an Excel spreadsheet. You should be able to use it to collect the data you need, then add an Excel chart to visualise it. Give it a try and let me know how you get on, I'm keen to improve it so all feedback welcome: https://www.excelpricefeed.com

    I've built an Excel Add-in which enables you to easily download historic IG market data into Excel. You can specify the resolution of the data, minute/hour/etc: https://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/historic-data-download-ig-index Please be aware that due to IG restrictions you can only download 20,000 historic datapoints per week. Hope this helps.
  17. Hi, I have just been looking at two pages on the IG site and they show different client sentiment numbers for AUDUSD: https://www.ig.com/uk/marketanalysis/ig-forex/audusd1 : 67% long https://www.ig.com/uk/forex/markets-forex/aud-usd : 50% short The API is also returning 50% short so I presume the 67% figure is incorrect? Can somebody from Support check please? Thanks
  18. More than double the average number of deaths for week 16 compared to the 5 year average.
  19. US futures in the red just before US open, at session lows. USD stronger, everything else red: Powered by https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  20. The world has gone crazy. Bill Gates being attacked by conspiracy theorists, no evidence for any of this other than "it's on Twitter". This used to be a reasonable discussion forum....Maybe I should post some screenshots from Twitter arguing that that earth is flat!
  21. The ONS have just published registered deaths up to 3 April: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsregisteredweeklyinenglandandwalesprovisional/weekending3april2020 I'm afraid it looks like the death rate from COVID-19 is going to be a lot higher than currently projected. The interesting comparison is the variation from the 5 year average (the top two lines) as this removes uncertainty about testing, deaths at home/hospital etc:
  22. Yes, you can set it up yourself on the My IG page: https://www.ig.com/uk/myig/dashboard There is an "Add an account" button:
