Platforms and Connectivity
Trade with the best conditions across a range of platforms
Our priority lies in optimizing execution speed without compromising liquidity. We provide prices from two complimentary sources, exploiting their advantages depending on market conditions. We have a provider without "last look" offering the best speed to access the market and a provider that offers us liquidity during high-volatility conditions. Our proprietary aggregation engine evaluates market conditions and directs the flow to the best provider at any point in time.
Darwinex servers are X-connected to our liquidity providers at the London Equinix LD4 Data Centre.
Our Metatrader servers are co-located with those of our liquidity providers in order to reduce transmission latency as much as possible. This also applies to our partner VPS provider BeeksFX, whose servers are cross-connected to Darwinex at the same venue.
Trading Platforms & APIs
We currently offer traders the following platforms and technologies for DMA access to the FX, Stock, Commodity and Index CFD markets.
As a technology company built by traders for traders, we are acutely aware of the requirements for algorithmic traders that span beyond the current capabilities of MetaTrader as a trading platform.
For this reason, our Labs team has engineered and made available the following auxiliary libraries to complement our MetaTrader / FIX API stack:
- FIX v4.4 Pricing & Trading Modules (in Python)
- ZeroMQ-enabled Python to MetaTrader Bridge (in Python)
- ZeroMQ-enabled MetaTrader Server EA (in MQL)
- DARWIN API Wrappers in Python & R
Users of the Zorro trading platform can also connect to and trade at Darwinex via Zorro’s MT4 & MT5 Bridge solutions.
