Dear Traders,

We are happy to announce with their recent update, trading with hedging accounts via FIX API is now fully supported and details can be found in their updated Rules of Engagement. The scope of cTrader’s FIX API now includes application messages for Request for Positions and Position Report to allow traders to manage open positions through FIX API.

In August 2016 cTrader broke ground by becoming the first retail focused platform to provide a FIX API to all users without any minimum requirements or commitments from traders, thus making the popular communication technology open to anyone regardless of whether they have a live or demo cTrader account.

We have also provided code for a sample application written in c# to highlight how to send and receive FIX messages to and from cTrader. This sample can be found in their GitHub repository here: https://github.com/spotware/FIX-API-Sample. A complete guide of how to work with the code sample can be found in their help site here: http://help.spotware.com/FIX/FIXSample
