Black Light Data is pleased to announce OrderBookFX: a new tool for retail and institutional FX traders. We provide a real-time FX liquidity data stream showing the global depth of book for all major currencies. Developed by traders who understand that most currency market participants are blind to price runs on short term horizons, OrderBookFX provides this visibility on a massive scale. Our subscribers see the global institutional limit orders above and below the current market prices in a real-time, low-latency display.
Real-Time, High Frequency
The OrderBookFX service streams data to your workstation or automated trading systems blazingly fast and with very low latency. Our custom platform is capable of delivering thousands of book updates per second to your desktop with minimal network and CPU resources required (see our support page for system requirements and other technical information).
Knowing where real supply and demand are is a vital key to successful trading. With OrderBookFX you will see where the big orders are, and where they are not.
When speculators are aware of true sentiment, their strategies improve significantly and trading becomes more transparent and efficient. Our market data is live and unobstructed – the aggregate of institutional and retail activity across a wide base of venues, not just one broker or ECN. OrderBookFX subscribers see the same standing limit orders that their brokers see, creating real transparency in the currency markets. With OrderBookFX, you will know when your broker's pricing is lagging, drifting or otherwise unscrupulous.
Easy To Use
All OrderBookFX subscriptions come with our clean, intuitive software for viewing the book data stream. In addition, developers and technically savvy traders are welcome to integrate our data into their systems (see the API page for documentation.) A ready-to-go MT4 indicator is also included, as are a stdcall DLL and a simplified interface for integrating OrderBookFX data into your EAs and custom indicators. Source code for the MT4 indicator and interface is provided.
OrderBookFX was built as a toolset, allowing traders of every caliber to enhance their strategies. Devise new trading algorithms from our unique, real-time data stream. Use our Viewer software to see the book data stream on your trading workstation, or integrate our low latency real-time API into your trading systems at no additional cost.
