What is API trading?

API stands for an Application Programming Interface. It is a program that connects two applications such as connecting your CWG Markets trading account and your custom-built platform. Trading with APIs enables you to gain direct access to CWG’s ecosystem, faster order execution and more control, which can enhance your experience of trading.

Trading with our APIs is an easy way to get live market data, historical prices and execute trades from any of your CWG Markets trading accounts without having to manually trawl various exchanges and dark pools for data and prices. Instead, you can get the information delivered directly to you to ensure speed and efficiency.
