APIs and Connectivity
For traders interested in utilizing an automated trading system or developing their own black box strategy, FXCC supports fully automated trade execution via a proprietary API.
The API provides users with the ability to receive a real-time rate feed, submit trade requests, set and modify orders, and receive automated confirmations of trade activity.
For qualified users, we provide a testing environment that enables developers to "paper trade" and test their systems in real time before using the API in a production environment with actual funds.
FXCC offers the FIX API. FIX is an industry standard protocol that can be used to exchange financial data between vendors.
FXCC's FIX API provides access to high-speed multi-bank FIX gateway (using the FIX 4.4 protocol). This gateway allows customers to connect their own platforms and access market data (with full depth of book) from over 25 different liquidity providers, as an aggregated feed or separately, and to manage orders.
