Looking to automate your trading ideas or want to move to algorithmic trading, but not sure how?

Automate your Trading Strategy with REST API

Join us for a live workshop where our in-house programmer will walk you through the process of developing a trading strategy in Python and connecting to FXCM’s REST API to stream live data into your strategy. During this event you will learn how to:

  • Take a pre-built strategy template and create your own trading algorithm in under an hour
  • Connect to price data and your trading account on a Python IDE via FXCM’s REST API
  • Access our easy-to-use Python strategy template to quickly create your own custom strategies

Need clarification on a particular function or line of code? Just ask. At the end, you’ll walk away with a template for creating a strategy and understand how to insert your own trading logic.

Follow along!
