OANDA’s APIs allow your applications to communicate directly with OANDA’s Trade servers over secure and authenticated Internet sessions with fully encrypted communication channels.
The APIs do not require the OANDA Trade user interface to be up and running, although you can use it to monitor the real-time actions taken by the APIs.
OANDA does not requote orders that are executed at the valid market price when the request is received at our server. No automated rejections, market orders only fail to be executed if they fall outside the upper/lower bounds that you choose to place to protect against price fluctuations, or if you have insufficient funds to execute your trade.
Execution speed and numbers are based on the median round trip latency from receipt to response for all Market Order and Trade Close requests executed between January 1st and May 1st 2019 on the OANDA execution platform.
