Status of SprintMarkets!?

I have been reading a number of threads and it is not clear what the current status is regarding the following. If someone from IG could reply, that would be perfect.

1) Is it now possible to get a list of durations (eg 1min, 2min etc) available for each sprint market?

2) Are the selection of markets and durations (eg EURUSD 20 min) that can be traded identical between Demo API and Live API?

3) Are the selection of markets and durations (eg EURUSD 20min) that can be traded identical between Live API and Live through the website?

Hi,

Hi,

1) Only way is to query /deal/markets and get the values for sprintMarketsMinimumExpiryTime and sprintMarketsMaximumExpiryTime. Round the values to minutes, for example 57 is 1 minute.

2) No

3) Yes

Many thanks. That clears

Many thanks. That clears things up. Odd that the number needs to be rounded. I'd be curious to know why.

Hi windsurfingstew,

belfort is correct:

1) Rounding the values to minutes is currently the best option. The reason for rounding was discussed here: http://labs.ig.com/node/146.

2) They should be the same but as they are configured separately it's likely there will be differences.

3) Correct.

Chris
