I have been a trader for a number of years but I tend to have basic needs that do not require programming knowledge. Can someone please explain to me 'in simple terms' what API and FIX are in regards to platforms, data and clearing? Does this refer more to home built platforms connecting to data or connecting your choice of data and platform to fcm's? Any insight would be appreciated.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?
