Canadian Retail Firm Offering API Capability

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by Investorsources, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. A friend and I are interested in locating a retail firm in Canada that allows you to automate your trading and that doesn't go by the name of interactivebrokers.

    Its not that we don't like IB, but their customer support has been a nightmare to many and we'd prefer someone else. I spoke to the big five banks, and as would have it, none of them offer it. Questrade, nada, and so it is, the question for the masses.

    Is there ANY retail firm in Canada that has this feature OTHER than IB.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Genesis?
  3. most major firms have apis. There are lot of firms in montreal, but they're all over the place.

    I have clients in canada (vancouver) that trade prop with sterling api. Not sure what the firm names are, but you can PM me.

    Also you could call sterling (or any provider or broker), and ask them if they have canadian branch offices... a lot do.
  4. Genesis doesnt take canadian retail customers when i talked to them about a year ago.
