I've checked cTraderFixApi_v2.16.pdf , there doesn't seem to be a message that shows whether an instrument is tradable (market order). Is there a way to get the instrument/market status? FIX API has SecurityTradingStatus and TradingSessionStatus etc, does cTrader support these?

Hi nafopavon,

We do not support these tags in FIX API. You can use Open API instead to retrieve this information.

Best Regards,
