Brokerage based on API trading

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by mcgene4xpro, Jun 15, 2012.

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am interested to know and understand the process of using API trading from a prime brokerage and then use it to connect with a propriety trading platform and link clients to it.

    I have found fxspyder doing the same with Oanda..

    What is the up and down with this method of establishing a brokerage business?

    Also, i could keep portion of clients trades to be matched in house before pushing them to the prime broker.

    Please share relevant ideas/opinions/links
