  1. Unfortunately, currently, there is no API available for RefcoPro such as XTraderAPI.
    API ehhancement is not just robot trading but also useful for basket-order. on-cancel-the-other order etc.

    RefcoPro is developed on some COM component that we can explore. In a sense this is the API.
    EasyRouterCOMClient.dll in the application folder is the one.

    After a quite research, I see a possiblity to access this API from the outside application while the Refco-Pro is running using a technique below.

    Of course, there is no support from the vendor, and it's pretty much irregular aproarch, but I just feel it's not very hard to do than I thought at the begining. There may be an issue that Refco Trading software agreement.

    So far, I developed some software employing GUI-auto-mouse-clicking solution, which works ok and with no problem.

    Just my thought. Forget.
