FIX (Financial Information Exchange) API (application programming interface) is used to communicate directly with cTrader Server through FIX messages. It is a protocol designed for exchanging electronic messages for financial information. It is the dominant protocol used for electronic trading.
FIX API is a universal standard. It’s used by numerous banks, prime brokers, and hedge funds. The origins of FIX API date back to the early 1990s, when several volunteer programmers were seeking opportunities for communication support when trading stocks. In 1998, this team of programmers started a non-profit company called FIX Protocol Limited (FPL), which focused on expanding, developing and supporting the protocol.
Communicating directly using FIX will minimise the latency and allow you to send and receive data much quicker which makes it ideal for time-critical systems. We can build a system for you that will leverage the power of using the FIX protocol and give you an extra edge for your trading.
Multi-channeling. Connect to multiple brokers simultaneously using one custom application or interface to extend their trading opportunities as they see fit.
Flexibility. Traders can develop algorithms using any programming language or other desired tools to provide themselves with a bespoke solution. Those tools can be connected to the markets via their broker using cTrader FIX API.
Privacy. Traders can run algorithms directly on their computer without running it on a commercial platform, thereby not disclosing any part of it.
Anyone with a creative or breakthrough idea can now turn it into a reality using the Open API, there is no limitation to what you can do, only your imagination will stop you.
