    I want to realize a automated trading system on the dax future.
    The systems exists and is tested.
    I only need the actual fdax quote and want to send the order to the broker.

    I have some (stupid?) questions:

    Which is the best and cheapest way to do that.

    if the broker has an API is it possible to write my own software that gets the quotes from the API and sends the orders to the API. or do I need a platform? i'm making a mistake?

    Does someone know if RCG (Rosenthal Collins) has an API?

    If i have an future account by (per example) RCG do i get the fdax quote from RCG or do i have to get them from another firm?

    Which broker do you think is good for about 500 fdax contracts per year?(low overnight margin and costs). Is RCG ok?

    Hope someone can help me!
    Please ask detailed if i couldn't explain to you, what i'm looking for

    Thanks for your answers
