R | API
R | API is a collection of C++ and .NET software libraries and interface definitions. Developers and screen designers incorporate R | API into their proprietary software to gain access to the Rithmic trade execution software infrastructure. R | API provides its callers with a normalized view of market data, reference data and order and execution reports across all supported exchanges. Additionally, R | API provides latency information about the market data and trade reports it receives so that a proprietary algorithmic trading program incorporating R | API may take immediate action if such latency exceeds its own thresholds.
System developers, professional day traders and screen designers interested in multi-asset execution choose to incorporate Rithmic’s C++ or .NET R | API, into their proprietary software or systems. Traders who integrate these API are then able to take advantage of what is believed by many to be the industry’s fastest and most reliable market data and order routing infrastructure, providing access to the futures markets.
