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

While working with one service provider on the implementation of GSP, we have removed separate messages for the rejection of a Cancel request and a Cancel/Replace (Modify) request. These rejects are now communicated through the Order Update Report. So now there is a single message type to communicate the status of an order.

This really works very well and is well organized. We are quite happy with it.

Once again, we encourage everyone to have a close look at this new protocol. We encourage all of our competitors, and all of the service providers out there to have a serious look at this. At this time, our investment in time on this, is only about a week to 10 days. Hopefully your time to support the protocol should be minimal.

After working with a particular service provider, we can see a huge benefit to working with a well-designed and open-source neutral protocol like GSP.


So please, anyone who reads this, if it interests you and make sense to you, get the word out to Data and Trading services that You would like to have support this protocol.

The objective of this protocol is a plug-and-play, easy and efficient protocol where any program that uses this protocol, that can immediately to connect to any particular Data or Trading service provider and expect everything to work properly. Once each side supports GSP, there is no longer any need to do any type of integration work between the 2 sides.

So rather than asking us, do you or would you support this particular broker or data service, instead tell them to go to this page and have a serious look at what we are offering to the industry:

Once we get a competitor who supports this protocol, and another service provider, then it is only a matter of time that this will be widely adopted.

There are some areas where the protocol needs further development, and that can and will be done. This is one of the easiest things that we can do.
