1Can I test your HFT solutions with a demo account?
Yes. However, you should consider that demo accounts cannot reliably test execution as orders from demo accounts are not sent to external counterparties for execution.
2Is there a minimum deposit required?
No minimum deposit is required to open an account with Scandinavian Capital Markets, but you must trade at least 50 lots per calendar month to receive HFT discount pricing.
3Do you allow automated trading?
Yes. We allow our clients to trade however they wish and support any trading strategy, whether an EA, cTrader Bot or a black box trading via FIX API.
1How fast do you execute orders?
We aim to process orders within 10ms. Over 95% of orders are executed in under 20ms.
2Can I have more than one account?
Yes. You can have as many trading accounts as required by your HFT strategy.
3Does HFT work with indices?
In our experience, HFT does not work with indices because these products are created by market makers quoting both sides. HFT works best with products like forex and metals.
