Yes, I understand that these are two different API.
API Laser bit confused, a little information on the Internet and, judging by the reviews, does not work very stable.
Sterling operates through the API more stable than the laser? I understand you correctly?
If one can work through the IPA Sterling, then why do we need laser API?
If you're going to work through IPA, I'd recommend one with a high IBU -- and even then I don't think you're going to make any money through it .
In considering automated trading systems, you're proposing a pretty involved endeavor and probably need to do a lot more homework before asking questions like those you're attempting to pose here. Google works wonders in this department -- "sterling api", "laser api", etc.
If you're serious about automated trading, FIX may be your best option. It's "broker neutral" and has far more robust features (retransmission, etc.,) than "platform" API's, which are usually just a library that hooks into a pre-existing, and perhaps unstable, point-and-click "trading platform".
