Do you have an API for the trading platform, I always wonder if there are prop shops providing API to their trading platforms...

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

Hello,
Prop firms have limitations and are not suitable for HFT, algorithmic trading. So any APIs you might find would not help you any better than regular simple scripting on the platform. Many traders tend to believe that they can do hft or anvanced algo trading through prop trading firms; with serious brokers that is just not possible. You would have to build your own system, and perhaps include a server on the NYSE.

I agree with you on the HFT, but not on the algorithmic trading, because I have been doing it personally for years hosting on VPS servers far away from my actual discount broker and using his API... I just can't imagine staring into stock charts all day long...

Hello, you are right about algo trading, it can be done with no problem as long as there is no manipulation. We have some algo traders, who don't use the API but Visual Basic. However, API is available for Sterling Trader Pro which is the platform used. If you are intrested in testing the API let me know by pm.

Hi Alex, great idea! I have heard and looked into the Starling platform years ago, but didn't realized they have an API available, I'll check the documentation to see what is possible... Unfortunately I don't have time right now, but in a few months I'll have more spare a time and would love to test and will reach out... Cheers!

No problem, sure. You won't have problems in finding the Sterling Trader PRO user manual online. It is a golden standard in trading, many platforms are based on it. Cheers.
