API (or automated) trading is a key component of the professional spot FX market place, offering efficient price discovery and 24-hour access to tight liquidity for professional spot FXNon-Deliverable Forward (NDF) and precious metals traders on EBS Market and EBS Direct.

EBS pioneered the development of API-based trading for the professional spot FX market and worked with its customers to produce API-based solutions to meet their liquidity and trading requirements.

The result was EBS Ai, a solution that facilitates automated and algorithmic trading using a two-way interface via XML or FIX protocol, helping customers to improve trading strategies and risk management.

As volumes of API trading continue to grow among buy-side and sell-side trading institutions, EBS continues to strengthen monitoring tools and controls to ensure a level playing field for all.

EBS Internet Ai

EBS Internet Ai is a new, cost-effective solution that simplifies and increases access to EBS Ai. It provides the option to connect customers’ aggregation and automated trading tools to EBS Market and EBS Direct securely via the internet through an S-tunnel connection with SSL encryption. This extends the reach of EBS FX traders to anywhere in the world with a high-speed internet connection.

As the EBS Internet Ai server is hosted in the EBS data centre space, customer costs, together with customer maintenance requirements, are further reduced.

EBS Internet Ai supports existing FIX and XML protocols which minimises the integration work required by the customer.

The EBS Customer Lab, which uses the same connectivity paradigm as the live environment, is available for code testing, and connection setup and testing.
