For professional market participants Dukascopy Bank offers the possibility of API integration. The Dukascopy Bank API is based on FIX4.4 protocol. The API is used to receive real-time data feed, submit orders, set / modify / cancel orders, and receive automated notifications of trading activities.
With a FIX API connection, users will still be able to use the standard Dukascopy Bank trading platforms with its basic functionality. However, the position calculation method (net/global position mode) applied to FIX API accounts is different.
