Capstone Forex Trading FIX API

FIX (Financial Information Exchange) API (application programming interface) is a highly scalable electronic communication protocol to facilitate the real-time exchange of information related to financial markets. It has become the de facto standard method of pre-trade, trade and post-trade communication.Market participants including banks, hedge funds, brokers utilise FIX for their own trading needs or to connect directly to clients.

Benefits to utilise the FIX API for connectivity:

  • Ability to control all system functionality simultaneously
  • Ability to manage more aspects of the trade (order size, executed price etc.)
  • Ability to see depth of market
  • Faster execution speed preferred by high-frequency strategies
  • A need for safety and the anonymity of client’s automated systems
  • Ability to cross-connect with top tier-1 banks and ECNs to further reduce latency

Capstone’s FIX API technology is ideally provided to clients who use automated trading strategies or already have had their own trading platforms with a standard or bespoke API specification.Via our API, clients are able to access our deeper liquidity pool aggregated from the 20+ top tier-1 banks and ECN venues.
