Algo Trading API & It’s Benefits

Growth markets, regulatory approvals, and a growing number of algorithmic trading APIs have made API trading markets a trend. Brokers have also played a key role in making algorithmic trading widely available to retailers and businesses.

The market can be traded in different ways. One option is to use the trading API provided by brokers. This blog covers a brief overview of APIs, their types, and some brokers that offer trading APIs.

What is an API?

API stands for Application Programming Interface. An API is a software intermediary that can make two programs talk to each other. Let’s dive into understanding how APIs work.

As you can see in the image below, the API role sits between the application and the server when you send a request to the application to do something.

Therefore, when you request to retrieve data in the application during trading, the application sends a request to the server through the trading interface. After reaching the server, the request is processed, and the desired result is displayed.

What is Algo Trading?

Algo Trading is a way of processing or executing orders using automated pre-programmed trading instructions or mathematical models (algorithms). The method utilizes high-frequency trading technology to enable thousands of trades every nanosecond. Algo traders define their patterns based on variables in the computer such as price, time, and volume, and when the instructions are executed, orders are automatically placed to record profits. The best part is that users can create algorithms and deploy them to make buy or sell orders.
