Post From: Announcement:New Protocol for Data and Trading Service Interface

Version 972 is being released now and it has support for this General Data and Trading service protocol. You will find it listed in Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings. The Service name is "General Service".

Market data is complete. Trading needs more work but should be done by the end of the day today.

We hope that this protocol will become an industry standard. It is an open specification and has no license or copyright. This industry is badly in need of our better way to accomplish connectivity. What exists now really is just a mess because everyone has their own interface and many services use in process API components. Services that are using FIX are good and we are happy with those.

The only Service we work with that has a protocol similar to this is MyTrack. Thankfully, they have a good design.

Really, other than Rithmic, all services that we work with, we are transitioning to direct connectivity following a standard or proprietary protocol. Rather than in process API components.
