Use Deltastock API libraries to build secure automated FOREX trading systems
The API is completely free of charge and is available to all DEMO users by default. LIVE account holders need to sign an additional agreement to have the API activated.
Deltastock's API is ActiveX based and can be accessed from any programming/scripting language that supports ActiveX, from JavaSript and VBA to C++, Delphi and .NET.
You can automate trading actions such as the following:
- Submit Market, Limit, Stop and OCO orders and receive confirmations of trade activity.
- Access to past trading transactions
- Access to current and historical Deltastock market rates.
- Test your automated trading strategies on a DEMO account.
The API requires the Delta Trading platform to be up and running, where you can monitor the real-time system actions taken by the API. It allows you to obtain many of the functions that are available in the Delta Trading Platform. By instantiating the API's core object ("DSAPI_Client.clientAPI") in an application, you will have the ability to retrieve information that is contained in many of the tables displayed in the Trading Platform, including dealing rates, accounts, orders, open and closed positions. In addition, instructions can be sent to place and retrieve information from market and entry orders.
