The Spotware 2.0 Open API is a Protocol Buffer based service that allows third-party service providers with the ability to integrate tools and applications for trading and analysis. This service provides access to the Spotware platform for data and functionality that includes all the required cTID data, market data and all possible trading operations on behalf of other cTrader users. It is designed to use protocol buffers to retrieve accounts information, market data, and trading data. This open API has no restrictions and it is supported by cTrader broker trading. cTrader provides Forex platforms for traders that is developed by Spotware Systems.
Spotware has released the second version of its open trading platform API: cTrader Open API. Unlike its private API, which is available to brokers only, cTrader Open API is available for anyone who is interested in building tools for traders. V2.0 opts for Protocol Buffering instead of REST.
