Real time communication with FIX API for professional traders

FIX protocol is used by many professional traders providing them with real-time communication between client, trader, investment fund or broker and liquidity provider. The API gives clients complete control over data which is sent and received without needing intermediary software.

Global Prime offers a FIX API connection for its clients. By using the FIX protocol, you can customize your trading experience to suit your specific trading strategy.

What is FIX?

FIX (Also known as Financial Information eXchange) is a protocol that has changed the trading environment immensely. It has proved to be fundamental in making electronic trading easier and more beneficial for professional traders.

FIX has become the default language of global financial markets. It is used by buy and sell-side firms, trading platforms, and regulators to aid in the communication of trade information. The FIX protocol is also a completely free piece of technology that is non-proprietary and is constantly being developed to support new technology, businesses, and regulatory needs. The protocol is used by thousands of firms all around the world and completes millions of transactions daily.

Why Use a FIX API

Incredible Speed

When utilising FIX API, you are getting a high-speed connection directly with trading servers. You don’t have to go through third party programs such as MetaTrader 4. Generally, traders will see latency as low as 1 millisecond.

Flexibility of FIX

A client may choose FIX API over other financial platforms and interfaces because other programs have limited functionality. There are also limitations from existing interfaces such as the need for two or more ticks to fill an order. This creates many problems for traders who are working with high-frequency strategies and need the fastest trades possible.

Designed for Professional Traders

Those that are looking for something more over the traditional trading experience will eventually find themselves looking at a FIX driven system. FIX offers the freedom allowing you to make trades the way you want. Traders are not held back by the limitations of conventional programs and trading systems. With an API, you have the ability to customize the experience for your own trading needs.
