What is FIX API ... and in which specific ways can I use it in my trading activity?
I've read the related site and some other web sites, but could not understand so much how I can benefit from it as an individual trader.
I see that many individual traders (I think they are developers of 3-rd part applications etc) are asking for API but from what I understand - this API will be available for the brokers only for MT5 (and the brokers may provide it for the traders/developers if the brokers decide it to provide).
I don't have any programming background ... so need help for the correct terminology.
The Metatrader API is the collection of functions documented in the MQL documentation, isn't it?
There is no Metatrader 5 API.
There is mql5, it's a programming language, which you can be uses inside MT5 to code indicators or strategy.
If you don't have any programming background, forget about FIX API, it's not for you ;-)
I will employ a full time programmer, so I try to learn every algo related thing as far as I can ... I'm even studying C and MQL5 in these days for communicating more effectively with the prospective programmer :)
So, in this frame, can you give some specific examples ... what can be done with the FIX API?
