In contrast to DAS’s standard API, the limited API is for users who operate on a smaller scale. DAS’s standard API enables users for unlimited order execution, catering high frequency traders. However, DAS’s new limited API, available at a much lower cost, allows users to send a maximum of 50 orders per second and a pull data for a limited amount of symbols.
The limited API is perfect for retail traders and prop firms who want to automate their strategy but do not need high frequency execution. The limited API utilizes the ultra low latency infrastructure of DAS, so the speed of execution is excellent for customers who wish to use DAS|API for their personal gray or black boxes. Also, DAS’s high quality real time data direct from the major exchanges is accessible via the API to ensure accuracy when determining your entry and exit points or compiling data for your technical analyses.
Excited about DAS’s efforts to provide traders on all levels with cutting edge technology, CEO Karen Gentile states, “The majority of trading now has become automated, which left the little guys out of the competition. With our API being more accessible to retail and prop traders, the technology gap is now closing, putting more people on an equal, or at least comparable playing field.”
To learn more about the availability of the limited API, please contact your broker if you are already a DAS user, or please join one of the broker dealers who currently offer DAS to their clients.
