FIX stands for Financial Information Exchange and it is a protocol used in the field of finance as a method for different systems to communicate with each other.
FIX API is a set of instructions and commands that can be used by the traders to access the FX liquidity pools and enables them to perform different types of high-speed trading.
Hantec’s FIX API is targeted at professional traders who have the necessary programming expertise and a specific trading requirement.
Professional traders who have experienced programming knowledge of C++, .Net, Java, HTTP, etc. are those most likely to benefit.
Some of the key benefits of using FIX API are:
Provides high-speed connectivity – Without MT4 or other platforms in the middle, you have direct exchange access.
Access to over 71 different LPs using our aggregation technology.
Your connections are directly plugged into our NY4 and LD4 Equinix datacenters. You are next to our Tier1 banks and liquidity providers who are clearing your orders.
Excellent platform for placing OCO orders which is not possible on many retail trading platforms.
Highly beneficial to professional traders. Customisation : Since protocol has to necessarily be written in a coding language, users could customise API to suit their needs.
