Rithmic, LLC is pleased to announce that version 10.0.0.0 of R | API+™ is now available for download by its end users. “The standout feature of version 10.0.0.0 is support for Depth by Order™. Programmers now have the ability to determine the position in the order queue of orders for instruments that trade on exchanges that publish order priority information,” said Gene Sato, chief developer of Rithmic’s API libraries. “We also provide information on the size of the implicit order book.” Jonathan Walden, CEO of Rithmic, continued, “We are very pleased to make such information available to our developer community. It has been more than 8 months since the CME began publishing the order priority of all its products via its MBO messages. During this time, through our desktop trading screen, R | Trader Pro™, we have demonstrated that position in queue information can be provided to a desktop application and displayed well, without taxing the trader’s CPU. We are confident that our programmatic interface to such information will enable algorithmic trading programs as well as other desktop trading screens to benefit likewise.”
