The interface delivers the following information from the IDEAL FX market and CBOE Futures Exchange markets:

  • static and dynamic parameters of instruments (Contract Details);
  • current parameters of instruments (Market Data Details);
  • quotes and order queues by selected instruments (Market Depth);
  • anonymized trades.

The data flow is transmitted over TCP/IP protocol.

Requesting and reception of data is done with the help of IBGateway utility-router which may be installed at the end-user’s location or remotely.

The interface software may be installed on the same PC as the QUIK server software.
