On Monday, Tastytrade and LiteFinance, retail brokers for FX and CFDs, shared updates about their businesses. Tastytrade revealed the launch of an application programming interface (API), while LiteFinance released an updated version of its mobile trading app for iOS devices.
Tastytrade Releases ‘tastytrade-API’
Tastytrade announced that they have a new interface called ‘tastytrade-API’ that allows users to create software applications for trading with their Tastytrade accounts, analyze market data, and connect with other applications and services.
Tastytrade has stated that they provide a fully functional sandbox environment for customers to test their strategies and applications before using live accounts. To assist customers in building their own trading platforms and obtaining market data, they provide a software development kit that includes sample code.
LiteFinance has released a new application for the Apple App Store, including features such as over 190 trading instruments, a copy trading system, professional market analysis, and 75 built-in indicators. The platform offers more than 100 visual analysis tools, allows trading with just one click, and has a feature for automatically withdrawing funds up to $3,000.
LiteFinance made notable enhancements to the app’s performance, which caused it to run faster and more consistently. Moreover, they have incorporated many new technical indicators and graphical analysis methods into the list.
Tastytrade recently changed its name to Tastylive in February, taking back the old brand name of the online financial network. It is worth noting that IG Group, a London-based spread betting, and CFD trading provider, owns Tastytrade and Tastylive.
Tastytrade provides a trading platform that allows retail investors to trade options, futures, and cryptocurrencies. LiteFinance, formerly known as LiteForex and now rebranded in 2021, provides its clients access to forex, CFDs on stocks, indices, commodities, and cryptocurrencies.
