roq-api

API for algorithmic and high-frequency trading (HFT).

Note! This project does not contain the implementation of the C++ interfaces. This is due to the ultra low latency communication protocol being closed source.

Features

  • Open source interface (no need to sign an NDA to access or use).
  • Permissive license (anyone is free to copy and use for whatever purpose).
  • Unified interface for all markets.
  • Design is strongly inspired by standards and specific implementations used by major exchanges.
  • Allocation-free message decoding supported.
  • Auto-generated code based on schemas.
  • Strongly typed messages (events).
  • Asynchronous interfaces and implementations.
  • C++ for ultra low latency.
  • FlatBuffers as an optional interface when latency is not a concern.

Operating Systems

  • Linux

Library/Package Dependencies

Optional

Prerequisites

The project is designed to be compatible with the conda package manager.

wget -N https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

bash Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh -b -u -p ~/miniconda3

source ~/miniconda3/bin/activate

conda install -y \
    git \
    cmake \
    gxx_linux-64

conda install -y --channel https://roq-trading.com/conda/stable \
    roq-oss-flatbuffers \
    roq-oss-fmt

Building

git submodule update --init --recursive

cmake .

make -j4

make test

Using

Please note that many of the interfaces are being auto-generated and the source files are therefore only accessible once the project has been built or installed.

Documentation can be found here.

C++

The C++ interface is designed for ultra low latency and requires a closed source implementation

conda install -y --channel https://roq-trading.com/conda/stable \
    roq-client

Samples can be found here.

C++ design

FlatBuffers

The FlatBuffers interface is useful when latency is not a concern or when other programming languages than C++ are required. Furthermore, the event log storage format uses FlatBuffers and can be decoded from any language.

FlatBuffers design

Python

WORK IN PROGRESS.
