Hi,

I would like to know if there is a restriction on the markets available through the FIX API, ie, can I trade all Eurodollar futures (spreads and butterflies), options and commodities futures (spreads) and options?

I was told by a broker that only a few spreads were supported by OEC Trader hence my question.

Thanks

We do not currently offer options spreads in our API, but do offer many futures, futures spreads (calendar, butterfly, condor, to name a few), and outright options.

You may request list of supported products using MsgType: c - https://gainfutures.com/api/html/e7687a06-7c48-4bf2-9ef4-fa73087f908c.htm

In production, we do offer Eurodollar futures and calendar spreads via API, but do not offer Eurodollar options at all. Eurodollar options (including outrights) must be called into our Trade Desk.

Thanks. Are the product supported by the OEC API and FIX API the same?

Are there any plans to support Eurodollar options at some point?

Yes, FIX and API should have same product offering with a few exceptions. Unfortunately, there are no plans in immediate future to offer Eurodollar options electronically.

Great thanks. I compiled and started the Advanced Example to get access to the symbol lookup and checked a few of the contracts that I need to be able to access and have a few questions.

Is the ICE exchange not supported through the API? I could not find Cotton or Orange Juice...
You don't seem to have spreads on hogs, is this correct (but I see butterfly somehow)?

Would these be supported by FIX? I am looking to move to Gain Capital but need to make sure that all the futures that I trade are supported and unfortunately I do not have a way to send a FIX request now but would be able to do this in the future if I decide to move to Gain.

Thanks

We only offer CME markets in DEV environment. I added HE FTS to the DEV environment, it did not exist. This might require weekend maintenance to see new contracts. You can test with LE FTS (live cattle) in the meantime.

It is possible to send spread order via FIX, hogs, cotton, and OJ are supported, among many others. You can see example session here where I sent OJ-M FTS +F8,-H8 order:

Great, thanks for the clarification. It seems that I should be able to do everything that I need.
