HERE ARE MT4’S TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS
LEVEL II PRICING
MT4’s depth of market shows the full range of executable prices coming directly from liquidity providers. The MT4 platform offers three depth-of-market types that give users an insight into current market pricing and liquidity. As well as two executable Depth of Market Configurations that provide ideal market views for scalping and large order volumes. Orders are filled against the full order book using Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP). MT4 fits very well into the EX FINANCES philosophy; who knew the guys at Spotware™ were in our team too?
QUICKTRADE EXECUTION SETTINGS
One click and double click trading are available from the top of every chart for all currencies. ‘Quicktrade execution settings’ allow users to automatically apply a stop loss and take profit whenever an order is executed by one or two-click trading. And the ‘market range’ setting limits slippage to any number of pips predefined by the user. At prices above or below the market-range setting, no volume of trading can be executed. In consequence, the people at Spotware™ are not only TRANSPARENT, but also INTELLIGENT? It’s true, then: they are truly part of our team.

FIX API FOREX TRADING AT EX FINANCES | FIX API WITH NO MONTHLY MINIMUMS
THE FIX FOR YOUR RETAIL PROBLEMS
Let’s be HONEST and DIRECT, as promised. Retail FX has always been similar to the main principle of Casino Gambling, that is ’The house ALWAYS wins.’ That is because the house, and by that we mean the end counterparty to your trades, always has an advantage. But you need not worry, because EX FINANCES has the perfect FIX for your problem.
IT’S TIME TO CHANGE THE GAME, IT’S TIME FOR AN UPGRADE
Let us help you picture the situation: FOREX Trading on MT4 compared to Trading the FX Market on an Institutional Desk is like driving a ‘70s tractor instead of a Lamborghini. We know the banks play with the many advantages; we do not need to give them more ways to tap our pockets.
EX FINANCES offers FIX 4.4 access to ALL of its clients, with NO MINIMUM Volume Requirements and NO MINIMUM Monthly Brokerage Costs. And, to make this an even more UNBELIEVABLY GOOD offer, you can open a FOREX Trading Account with FIX API 4.4 access for the same minimum deposit as MT4… ONLY $500 USD.
WHAT EXACTLY IS FIX API 4.4?
Think of the FIX API as the connection between you and the liquidity provider actually executing your trades. When you trade via a platform, i.e. MT4 or MT4 for example, those platforms need to receive your trade request and convert that request to a FIX Message and then transmit that FIX Message via the FIX API session your broker has established with their connected liquidity providers. In MT4’s case this conversion is done via a ‘bridge’, a plugin that sits on the MT4 server and converts MQL language to something more standard, a FIX API message. When you trade over a direct FIX API connection you bypass the added latency that comes along with using one of these platforms.
Still a bit confused about how it all works? We are right here (insert hyperlink) to help.
FIX stands for the Financial Information eXchange (insert hyperlink) and you can find extensive interesting information on their website.
A FIX API is actually only a set of rules that allow you to connect to a FIX host and receive not only incoming market data, but also transmit order requests and receive execution confirmation messages. The four point four in FIX API 4.4 is simply the version of the FIX code you are working with.
If reading the FIX website makes you a bit lost, you can find a condensed version on Wikipedia, which is written exactly by the creators of the system.
