What Is FIX API?
FIX (Financial Information eXchange) is an industry standard protocol used by major trading firms to ensure the fastest possible execution. It encodes information about orders and sends them as standardised messages between market participants. An API (Application Programming Interface) is software that allows two users to exchange information.
For Forex traders, FIX API is necessary for high-speed, algorithmic strategies as it allows direct connection to the global marketplace without using a third-party programme like MetaTrader. Alchemy Markets traders can use FIX API for faster order execution and get live market data with maximum transparency and minimal trading costs.

FIX API FAQs
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a protocol to allow communication between different software users. Different services and products can communicate with each other via the API and exchange data. API trading allows you to connect two applications, such as a trading platform and a brokerage account, and gives you direct access to markets. This allows for faster order execution and reduces the trading friction when trading with a broker.
FIX is a bi-directional messaging protocol that transfers messages between two parties that want to buy and sell assets. Trading via FIX is much lighter and has higher execution speeds, as clients exchange messages and connect directly to other market participants to exchange trade information. High-frequency traders can use the Alchemy Markets FIX API solution to trade directly or by integrating it with any trading platform or GUI.
FIX API is popular with a wide range of users, including buy and sell side firms, high-frequency traders, and professional algorithmic investors.
