We invite proprietary trading groups and hedge funds to explore the advantages of our FIX CTCI high-speed trading solutions. Trader Workstation (TWS) or IB Gateway serve as the methods for trading access.
Session connections are facilitated via the IB Gateway Client, VPN, extranet providers, dedicated leased lines, or cross-connect. Also, note that the trading system supports only one connection type for each account. For specific providers and pricing, see the Enhanced Network Connections page.
In addition, our User Guide provides detailed instructions and sample code to help clients implement standard FIX tags, session protocols, execution reports and post-trade allocations.
Moreover, the API Solution Matrix on our website lists the FIX CTCI capabilities and compares its key attributes against other API Solutions.
Finally, check out the Programming Consultants Listing on the Investors’ Marketplace to connect with experts. These providers typically assist our clients in building and maintaining trading algos and solutions for API and FIX CTCI.
