An API (Application Programming Interface) is a program which enables one software application to speak to or interact with another. For example, a flight booking aggregator site or a hotel reservation portal.
Trading APIs allows traders to interact with a third-party trading platform. They help the traders to connect their trading application to the algorithmic execution platform located at the broking partner’s end, which in effect will connect with the exchange. Trading APIs are specifically beneficial for traders who wish to run algorithmic models on their own trading systems, receive real-time pricing and be able to perform trades.
Swing APIs is a set of simple HTTP APIs (also known as Rest APIs) built on top of Swing (TradeSmart’s trading platform.) It provides complete data required to build your own customized trading application aligned to your individual trading needs. You can execute orders in real time, manage user portfolio, stream live market data (using Websocket), and much more, with TradeSmart API.
