Equities, Futures, and Options from one API

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by GoldStandard, Jan 26, 2011.

  1. What brokers allow trading both equities, futures, and options from the same API?

    So far I'm aware of Interactive Brokers, ThinkorSwim, and Vision Financial. Are there any others that are available to the retail trader?

    Just FYI: the Vision solution is a white label version of Rithmics product. You can contact them directly to find the FCMs they support.
  7. I should add that I've since learned that Vision, while it offers access to equities, futures, and options, does not use the same API for all of them. There are separate apis for equities and futures.
