Automate your trading with our new web-based trading API
Our web API offers you an easy way to get market data, historical prices and execute trades against any of your IG accounts. It can be used with Excel (VBA), .NET, Java and any programming language that supports HTTP.
It is also designed to get you coding as quickly as possible, with a sample app, fully featured online documentation and interactive developer tools to assist you. See our IG Labs site for further details.
Our API supports pricing, trading and streaming account balance figures and is connected securely to IG’s systems using SSL over the web.
You can trade the full range of IG’s products over the FIX API, with your executions handled using a market-leading Smart Order Router. The SOR connects to multiple trading venues and dark pools, ensuring you get the best execution.
The API supports all major order types supported by our DMA trading platform, and lets you use trading algorithms and models to execute trades for you.
We offer both DMA and OTC solutions via FIX:
To ensure that our API is right for you, to request our rules of engagement or to find out more please call one of our account executives.
