Program Access and Integration (FIX and API)
Access to market liquidity, via the Financial Information eXchange protocol (FIX) and Application Programming Interfaces (API) – as well as other methods of program integration – will satisfy even the most demanding of FXFINPRO CAPITAL institutional and professional clients, who develop or use their own trading platforms and applications. Whether you are a broker or a financial institution, whether you trade in hedge funds or use algorithmic methods requiring advanced programming skills, accessibility and integration of your application to trade on Forex or any stock exchange will become easier and more intuitive with solutions provided by FXFINPRO CAPITAL.
For the purpose of clarity, here are definitions of FIX and API:
- FIX is an electronic communications protocol that allows safe and efficient arrangement of the flow of trading data in a common format.
- API (application programming interface) is a set of software libraries and tools for building and connecting software applications. It could be used as a safe and effective method of transmitting trading orders and quotes from almost any liquidity source to the trading systems and applications employed by FXFINPRO CAPITAL clients.
