If you’re a serious trader, you need a better, faster, smarter and more sophisticated way of trading your high frequency strategies. If you’re a serious trader, you need Manhattan Global Markets’ FIX API Trading Solutions.
The FIX Protocol was established for interbank trading systems back in the day but is now the preferred choice of serious high frequency traders. Our FIX API trading solution incorporates an highly advanced and ultra-low latency implementation of version 4.4 of the FIX protocol, ready and able to handle thousands of trades/sec.
Traditionally, FIX API trading accounts are reserved for the elite traders and most brokers ask for large deposits before a FIX API account is provided. Not here. At Manhattan Global Markets, we believe that every trader deserves a chance to trade using the FIX API with a small deposit of just $5,000 (USD).
The days when FIX API trading accounts used to be expensive and loaded with monthly charges are gone now. With Manhattan Global Markets, there are no minimum monthly charges. Trade as much or as little as you want, when you want, how you want. We will stand beside you and help you achieve your goals at every step.
Whether you’re trading a latency strategy, volume spread analysis, hyper scalping or rapid price action, our FIX API trading account has everything you need to get ahead as a retail trader. Backed by institutional grade, Tier 1 liquidity, you are guaranteed better results with us than anywhere else.
Our FIX API trading accounts are the most flexible compared to anything else available at any other brokerage. You can connect our FIX API to any FIX compliant trading platform or integrate trading algorithms directly with our FIX API. If you don’t have an existing platform, then you can also use our Fix API Trading platform that uses the familiar MT4 as the front end graphical interface but uses our powerful FIX engine for trade execution.
As high frequency traders, your strategy may require the FIX IOC (Immediate or Cancel) or the FOK (Fill or Kill) order tag. We support both – for market orders as well as for limit orders. Our order rejection rates are below 1% across the network and even during news times, our slippage never goes above a pip or a pip and half. No broker will be upfront in telling you that but for the sake of transparency, you must know that every broker experiences slippage – regardless of how good their marketing is. We are no exception. However, we handle things better because we fight for the traders.
As with everything at Manhattan Global Markets, our FIX API trading accounts enjoy ultimate transparency and integrity when it comes to trade execution. We absolutely detest dealing desk and B-Book mentality and pass your trades straight to the bank with only the spread as our true and only source of revenue. There are no dodgy plugins deployed anywhere that can hinder with your trade outcomes so let it loose, turn on the tap, you’ve got access to our fire hose directly into interbank liquidity – trade … win… repeat.
With our FIX API trading account you can use any FIX 4.4 compliant platform. However, we do not support direct MT4 to FIX integration (at the moment) so you can either have an MT4 account or a FIX API account. You cannot have both of them at the same time.
For every FIX API trading account you will receive an MT4 account but that is just for the sake of viewing your trades. You will not be able to interact with your trades through this account. It is for VIEW Access only.
Yes absolutely. Upon account approval and receipt of your deposit, you will receive our entire FIX documentation that will give you everything you need to plug your algos directly into our FIX connector.
