API For Developers
The Mexem environment of API and FIX allow the traders, the investors, and the financial institutions to create automatic systems that take advantage of the unique performance abilities of Interactive Brokers and the global availability.
API Interactive Brokers-Mexem
You can create your trading application in Excel, C++, Posic C++, Java, Visual Basic etc. via the API workspace of Mexem. The API connection is done via the trading program TWS or through the gateway. It does not require additional technical things such as the FIX server.
We recommend that the developers check the components of the API for their security account or for their TWS Demo account before they upload the systems in live money.
You can choose which technology is preferable and the best for you.
|Access Technology||Performance||Platform||Has Sample Application|
|Java||Very robust and reliable; high performance.||Platform-independent||Yes|
|C++ (POSIX-compliant)||Very robust and reliable; high performance.||Platform-independent||Yes (limited functionality)|
|Python||Very robust and reliable; high performance.||Platform-independent||Yes|
|.NET (C#)||Very robust and reliable; high performance.||Windows only||Yes|
|C++ (MFC)||Very robust and reliable; high performance.||Windows only||Yes|
|ActiveX||Somewhat robust and reliable (ActiveX can lose events); fairly high performance.||Windows only||Yes|
|DDE||Limited; uses obsolete technologies; lower performance.||Windows only||Yes (limited functionality)|
Our FIX CTCI environment enables you to create the automatic trading systems that take advantage of IB.
In every entrance you can choose your preferred connection. You may want to connect with the TWS for a checkout, or to operate the Gateway in order to save resources. The two possibilities contain a close synchronization with the automatic systems, however, TWS has a visual display, which does not exist in the Gateway.
Types of Connections
You can associate each account to one type of connection. An account with a number of accounts, such as with a portfolio manager, can receive a connection to all of the accounts).
The time period for changing the connection is around one week.
|Internet||Standard connection through public internet. Requires MEXEM Gateway connection interface.|
|Extranet||A T1 line routed to one of MEXEM’s extranet providers, Radianz TNS or Savvis. They route directly to MEXEM over a secure private line.|
|VPN||A T1 line routed to one of MEXEM’s extranet providers, Radianz TNS or Savvis. They route directly to MEXEM over a secure private line.|
|Cross-Connect||Equinix NY4 colocation facility (tier 4 datacenter) is located in Secaucus, New Jersey. MEXEM has a client point of presence at this datacenter. Clients who are also located in this datacenter can order a cross-connect from the datacenter to MEXEM’s client facing servers there. The client is responsible for the costs of the cross-connect. Once the cross-connect is ordered by the client (with NY4), MEXEM’s network engineers will work with the client and the datacenter.|
