FIX Trading Gateway

FIX Protocol

FIX - Financial Information exchange - is the de facto connectivity standard for the financial industry. It serves all levels: front-office trading applications, mid- or back-office systems and exchanges. Patsystems is a member of the Global Derivatives Steering Committee, which means that we help shape the development of the FIX standard.


Patsystems' FIX Trading Gateway is built around industry standard FIX 4.2 connectivity. Our Gateway provides a high speed connectivity solution for order flow and market data. Developers who are fluent in FIX can get connected in a minimal amount of time.

The current FIX API is available in two formats, both supporting FIX version 4.2. The interfaces can be used for order flow, market data and notice of execution. The formats are:

  • A deployable API-based application that may be embedded within a buy-side application or a FIX engine. The application sends Patsystems' proprietary messages to a broker
  • The traditional method of routing FIX-based messages directly to a FIX-based server housed at the sell-side broker.
