How to Minimize Your Liquidity Risk with FIX API?

Blog | 03 Dec 2020 10:51/AM GMT

Instability in liquidity level is known as liquidity risk and according to Investopedia, it happens when an individual investor, business, or financial institution cannot meet its short-term debt obligations. 

Due to a lack of buyers or an inefficient market, the investor or entity might not be able to turn an asset into cash without giving up capital and profits. 

In the financial market, liquidity risk is another form of risk that traders may need to be aware of before they create a strategy that employs illiquid assets. 

As an institutional participant, you can manage liquidity risk to avoid the problems it brings. 

Integrating a robust Application Programming Interface (API) into the trading operations infrastructure is a widely sought-after way to improve market communications and enhance trade performance. 

When it comes to APIs in the financial field, the Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocol has become the international language of the financial markets for front-office communications.
