I linked my trading to C2 for a week, and the only thing I can say is: it doesn't work.
No one trade was filled at my price, the majority of trades were filled at completely different prices. Many loss trades where profitable on C2 and vice-versa. Some trades were left open on C2, even if I closed it, and others were rejected with no valid reason.

And this was only from me to C2, I can't imagine what mess my subscribers would have received.
Reliability is zero.

To be honest, I tried also other automation services (tradency, zipsignals, rentasignal, zulutrade) and no one was reliable enough to trust.

The only good solution, for a good execution on the subscribers machine, between the machine which is sending the order, and your subscribers machine.
A good old tcp client/server can do the job, and the whole process won't take more than 200 or 300 ms, vs 5 or 10 s for C2.
C2 is good enough for swings, but not for sclaps.
