Fastest way to get Brokerage support for IG Markets?

Hi,

I'm thinking about whether it would be worth spending the time to build brokerage support for IG Markets. I'm using them as my main broker and they're more reputable and cheaper than the FX brokers QC currently offers.

They have a REST and Streaming API available (https://labs.ig.com/) as well as a C# wrapper (

https://github.com/IG-Group/ig-webapi-dotnet-sample/tree/master/IGWebApiClient

). How do I stop the forums from automatically inserting this big blob of nothingness next to each link, by the way?!

 

My questions are whether a) someone is already working on this and b) the expected man hours involved in building out barebones, basic support for this (let's say only market orders for now)? I would love to work on this but I'm afraid it'll take me too much time that should be spent building the algorithm.

It is roughly 200 hours of work. We sponsor up to $5,000 for complete brokerage implementations of leading brokerages as defined by all the pieces of the brokerage development guide. IG qualifies if they have streaming order event as you've mentioned.

Hey, by way of update:

I've reached out to IG to check how they feel about the idea.

In the meantime, if you come across this thread and you would benefit from an IG Markets broker interface for QuantConnect, please note down your interest!
