    New to the forum and quite a beginner in this field, but I'm just a tad curious about how the Binary Options brokers does with the currency feeds as they don't need no market depth or anything, basically just a stable feed that shows the current price on a symbol and that's that.

    I thought I'd ask the experts on how the brokers actually do it?
    What vendors could they use?
    How technically does these feeds work, TCP? FIX? some application? "leeching" it off other brokers somehow?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
