Spotware, the trading solutions provider and creator of the cTrader platform, has started off 2019 with the release of the new Open API of its flagship Forex and CFD trading platform. The new version enables faster performance and more functionality.
The Open Application Programming Interfaces (API) enables third-party service providers to develop applications using the existing cTrader trading infrastructure and offer them to the large pool of cTrader users through a free, secure, and publicly accessible API. MyFxBook and Duplikium are two of the most successful applications developed using cTrader Open API.
Third-party service providers offer added value to cTrader platform as customers benefit from a larger variety of services. cTrader Open API 2.0 will run in parallel with the previous version until v1.0 becomes deprecated. The new version has a number of improvements from its predecessor, overall enabling faster performance of apps and providing them with more functionality, thanks to being entirely based on Protocol Buffers and having added more messages.
Panagiotis Charalampous, Head of Community Management at Spotware, commented: “cTrader Open API serves the mutual benefit of those trading with cTrader, as well as technology providers and development companies, by providing added value and a ready-to-use trading environment.”
The award-winning financial technology provider has released the cTrader Open API so it can be used to build a number of useful applications, such as algorithmic trading services, signal providers, trading analysis applications, copy trading tools, and even complete trading applications or customized broker interfaces fulfilling their clients’ needs.
All cTrader Brokers are given access to the Open API and developers can sign up and submit their request at cTrader Open API site.
