I would need some advice if it is possible for retail trader to get FIX API to data feed and order execution. Or is it only for big boys. To give you an size idea, the fees should fit the costume, hence account about 20.000 USD.
I have trader API on a forex market maker for years, but it was not possible to bid/offer and there was no real time order book either.
My trading style is fast and automatic.
Therefore I would like to find ways to;
- execute and manage orders as professional as possible automated via FIX or similar.
- get data including order books and trades feed.
Execution and fair/equal treatment in the order queue if possible.
For example I have looked at LMAX, looks good but they have no executed trades feed.
Also I read much good about IQFeed on this forum. Is that what I am looking for?
What about getting feed from the exchange instead?
I would be interested to trade; treasuries, Bund, Bobl, Schatz, Eurostoxx, Eurodollars
As I am new to order book, a possibility to demo for some time at low cost is also a plus.
