Disclaimer: This third-party trading platform demo is designed as an introduction to the platform and its functionality. It is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment. In an actual live trading environment, commissions and fees would be applied at the close of every business day, and an account statement would be generated. Daily statements and the associated fees are not applied within the demo environment and as such, those fees, which may have a material impact on your account, are not reflected in final profit and loss calculations within this demo. Other factors such as latency fill price and execution times may also differ from live trading results. It is not intended for this demo to be an accurate representation of actual profits or losses that may occur in a live trading environment. These 3rd party platforms generally supply the user with real-time market data, however that can change at any time and without notice. This data should not be considered an adequate approximation of the trading results or experience that may occur in a live-trading environment.

CTS T4 – API Develop Your Own Application

The T4 API simplifies development, saving time and frustration. CTS’s own T4 Desktop is written directly to T4 API, which allows for any functionality available on the T4 front ends to be duplicated on any other 3rd party application. Microsoft.NET permits applications to be written in languages such as advanced C++, C#, and Visual Basic, among others. Visual Studio 2005 and later is supported. The T4 API utilizes a single SSL connection, enabling easy passage through firewalls.

In the API development stage, you must first decide on which environment you are interested in connecting with. Live or Simulation environments are available. It is recommended to all developers that they begin their work in the Simulation environment.

Initial development in Simulation can be done using the default "T4Example" license. All newly registered Simulation users have access to this license. Only when development becomes more serious do we recommend requesting a permanent custom license.

The trading results on the demo accounts do not include commissions, exchange fees and NFA fees. You should also consider that certain fills you would get on a "demo" account might not reflect the same result on a live market action. Demo accounts use hypothetical money and don’t have the emotional impacts of real money. This demo is designed as an introduction to using the platform; it is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment.
