FIX API, Financial Information Exchange

The application programming interface (API) is the actual source code to several of our trading platform products. It is widely used in any software development, but in the financial industry it is used to increase and maintain a firms available products. A client may not want to use our available trading platforms, so we provide this source code for programmers to link their software to ours. As other trading platforms trade through our API, all trades will come to Tradeview Forex for clearing while you retain your preferred platform's functionality.

Currency Pairs

Tradeview Forex offers trading in the following currency pairs:


Trading order types

The dealing platform provides sophisticated order entry and tracking.

Orders may be entered at any rate – inside or outside the existing spread – using the following orders types:

  • Market Order: An order based on a current market price.
  • Limit orders: An order with restrictions on the maximum price to be paid or the minimum price to be received.
  • Stop Loss orders: Order type whereby an open position is automatically liquidated at a specific price. Often used to minimize exposure to losses if the market moves against an investor's position.

In normal markets, any sell stops will be filled on a dealer's bid, and buy stops are filled on a dealer's offer. If the market 'gaps' sharply up or down the stops will be filled at the best available price.

Internet trading

Executing a deal via the Internet is a simple two-step process.

Simply enter the number of currency you want to buy or sell and then click on the bid (sell) or offer (buy) for the currency pair you wish to trade. Your deal is automatically executed. The dealing software automatically calculates the initial margin requirement based upon the notional amount of the deal, and if sufficient funds are available in your account, will accept the transaction.
Deals are confirmed online, normally within one-sixth of a second, and the system instantly updates both your open position and calculates your current floating P&L.

Overnight rollover

A rollover is the simultaneous closing of an open position for today's value date.

(normally at the end of the trading day) and the opening of the same position for the next day's value date at a price reflecting the interest rate differential between the two currencies.
For example, on Wednesday, all positions which are rolled overnight to Thursday would have the value date of the following Monday.
To account for the two days of interest for the weekend when banks are not open and actual delivery cannot be made, Tradeview Forex will credit or charge 3-times interest for positions rolled over on Wednesday, as per industry standard.

Phone trading

Get your phone deal.

  • 1. Call the trading desk to speak with a dealer
