API Trading

The proliferation of automated trading systems has led to the growing use and popularity of Application Programming Interfaces (also known as APIs).

API is basically a sequence of a well-defined mode of establishing a chain of communication between heterogeneous software components, and it allows traders the facility of connecting their screening software to their broking/trading accounts. Several retail brokers worldwide are now actively providing API’s to their clients.

FIX API: FIX API is an API, based on the FIX protocol, which allows users to communicate directly with our server through FIX messages.
