    I trade via API. You need to have a lot of experience with programming. I use C# and websockets. I can assist with the development.

    afmzaafmza Thats great to know we have someone experienced in api and using it too, I have a lot of unanswered questions on API, I guess this thread can go deeper. I believe that you have a lot of knowledge with HFT.
    What are the real main advantages of API over MT4
    How many digits are your quotes ? Based on my research, some come in 6 digit quotes, which makes it a very big advantage for EAs that scalp a pip in fractions .
    Is it possible to run an EA via MT4 and executed via api ?
    Do you have any knowledge about this software, like is it effective http://fixapitrading.com/using-fix-trader-with-mt4-terminal/
    I have been researching API and FIX for over 3 yrs but I'm still using MT4 rill now,
    And which brokers do you suggest that have the best API services, eg lowest spread/commission/ minimum account / rebate / or monthly fee if required threshold is not achieved.
    Hope i'm not asking so much questions.

    See if the following wares i added here are useful to u, a friend was once searching for it and requested me to help him. And i found them for him,He writes EA on zorro, I know the soft allows you to control multiple MT4 instances , but i only develop strategies, i have zero coding languages

    Hi,

    Thanks for the information!

    You are correct, when trading over API you can get 6 digit quotes - so you can trade very small fractions of a cent.
    API has nothing to do with MT4.

    MT4 is just a trading platform. If you trade via API, you are basically creating your own "platform" for trading, except you can program the strategy into the platform - so there is no need for a user interface. The API that they are talking about here is an API to MetaTrader - this is a different thing.

    Trading via API has no fancy graphs or buttons, generally its just a basic console application or python script.
    Using a MetaTrader API has no benefit other than you not needing to learn MQL4/5 - you wont be able to trade with 6 digits quotes, because you are still bound by Metatrader which does not have this functionality.

    I recommend OANDA for API trading - the only downside is that they charge you swap continuously and not only if you keep your positions open over midnight.

    Thanks a billion for the info, so mt4/mt5 can not support 6 digit quotes, hmmm. Then thats a huge advantage, but the swap they charge is the only little downside.
    So how do you test and optimize your strategy before using it on API
