API Connectivity

Getting Started

Developers may automate and route orders to the OMS system's points of liquidity. All orders are checked for buying power, order handling rules and risk management parameters at our OEM with extremely low latency. This is accomplished through API Plug-in to our OMS.

Our support staff works with program developers to provide a testing network to facilitate API testing. This enables developers to "test" their system real time before going live with and begin trading with their OptionsRoute Brokerage Account.

Various connection points may be available.

*OptionsRoute® is a Division of ViewTrade Securities, Members FINRA and SIPCFINRA Brokercheck for Viewtrade Securities. As a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), funds are available to meet customer claims up to a ceiling of $500,000, including a maximum of $250,000 for cash claims. For additional information regarding SIPC coverage, including a brochure, please contact SIPC at (202) 371-8300 or visit www.sipc.org. Our Clearing firm has purchased an additional insurance policy through a group of London Underwriters (with Lloyd's of London Syndicates as the Lead Underwriter) to supplement SIPC protection. This additional insurance policy becomes available to customers in the event that SIPC limits are exhausted and provides protection for securities and cash up to an aggregate of $600 million. This is provided to pay amounts in addition to those returned in a SIPC liquidation. This additional insurance policy is limited to a combined return to any customer from a Trustee, SIPC and London Underwriters of $150 million, including cash of up to $2.15 million. Similar to SIPC protection, this additional insurance does not protect against a loss in the market value of securities.


System response, trade executions and account access may be affected by market conditions, system performance, quote delays and other factors.
