In a maker-taker model, the “taker” is a trader who removes the liquidity from the book by placing an order that matches immediately with an existing order on the book. The Taker pays the fee from the committed trade. The “maker” is a trader who provides liquidity to the order book by placing a limit order below the best ask price for buy and above the best bid price for sell.

Bequant API:

Bequant facilitates automated trading via three different APIs, the REST, WebSockets and FIX. Using Bequant API comes with some limitations, such as:

  • For the Market data, the limit is 100 requests per second for one IP
  • For Trading, the limit is 300 requests per second for one user
  • For other requests, including Trading history, the limit is 10 requests per second for one user

With the FIX protocols, all connections and sessions between the client and server are maintained as specified in the FIX protocol.

Each integrated client will use the assigned IP address and port to establish a TCP/IP session with the server. As outlined in the FIX protocol, the client and server will each maintain a separate and independent set of incoming and outgoing message sequence numbers. Sequence numbers should be initialized to 1 (one) at the start of the FIX session and be incremented throughout the session.
