Web Application

Hi guys! I'm planning to make a Web application so I can check my positions, or even close some of them. I found 2 possibilities:

- Using Zen-Fire API directly
- Using Ninja Trader API

The former is possible, since Zen-Fire released their API to the public for free. But the problem is that you are tied to Zen-Fire, and cannot use TT. Zen-Fire API is also more powerfull than Ninja Trader API.

The Ninja Trader API is a little bit modest comparing to Zen-Fire API, but for just reading my account positions and close some of them eventually, this is enough.

The questions are:

- Has anybody done a Web application like this?
- If I deploy this application in a web hosting, would it block my app connections to Zen-Fire?
- Is it possible to use just the Ninja Trader DLL in my Web application, without having the Ninja Trader software installed in the machine?

Hi Guilherme,

Quite an ambitious project, I like it.

I have no experience in what you're trying to accomplish, except for some experience with web hosting. Your host should not block the traffic, even on non-standard ports there should be no reason it would be blocked. If they do, you need to find a better host.

Good luck,
Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. 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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Sorry, it's maybe a bit off-topic, but I've something like this with the IB API, in Java.
And with this API, it's very very easy...
I didn't find the a Zen-Fire API link, can you give us a link 6qat ?

If someone else is interested in programming for Zen-Fire, I've attached here a C# example of using it.

Thanx for sharing the example. Is there no java api ...

i think java is easier to use ... you need only a servlet container, the api and some own created servlets ... put togehter with a database and apache and ssl and you can use on any plattform

best regards
