I have a calgo robot but need to hook up with a FIX-Api provider.
How can that be achieved?

Hi ctid863631,

A cTrader Automate robot can only trade with the cTrader's broker. It cannot be connected to an external source.

Best Regards,

Panagiotis.

You can connect the robot to a FIX API.

1-But you need an external server to provide backend. Example:

NodeJs server could use ExpressJS to build a endpoint . That endpoint will listen each robot request to your endpoint and your NodeJS can process and trigger x action to a third FIX API throw a client like NodeFIX. So your server can act as SERVER and client.

Take a look if you are interested in NodeJS

Take a look at http://quickfixn.org

It's a .Net port of a well known open source QuikFix engine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QuickFIX
