Benefits of using the API trading technology
The API trading technology allows the trader to directly access the liquidity provider or the exchange without using a terminal. Application Programming Interface or API is an interface that allows software to interact with other software through a system of commands.
For latency forex arbitrage, the API trading allows your software to connect with a fast broker to get real-time pricing data.
Major liquidity providers in the European market:
✔ Lmax Exchnage;
✔ Gain Capital Futures;

Warning! Many exchanges require a monthly fee for using the API. The cost of using this type of connection depends on which exchanges you select to get quick quotes and what tools you need (currency pairs, indices, gold, cryptocurrency).
For example, quotes from CME exchange cost about 100 USD per month.
