Foreign Exchange (Forex) TradeStation

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

Apologies for my nooby, basic questions!

My apologies in advance for such basic nooby questions.
10 years ago I invested a LOT of time/expense learning trading strategies, had a tradestation account and was just getting going with trading as a hobby. I didn’t do any kind of forex trading back then.
Fast forward to today, I feel like I’ve forgotten everything, LOL. I’m looking to get back into it now and have absolutely no idea where to start. Looking to use MT4...I’ll be practicing a lot with historical data. Where can I get historical forex data that will easily load into MT4? Also looking for a low-cost, reliable forex broker if such a thing exists. I’ll only be starting with $1000-$2000 of capital initially (after extensive refreshing of my old strategies/back testing). I realize that’s a tiny amount to start with so any advice as to the best broker etc would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry again for the basic questions. I feel a bit embarrassed to even ask, LOL
Thanks in advance for your help.

Need advice on which online broker to use. Please advise!

I want low cost trades, currently use Edward Jones and get raped. I started with EJ because I started a Roth there, and will keep it there. It just is not good for short term trading.
I want my money to be quickly accessible so I can disengage it / Reengage it to capture gains/avoid losses. I would want lowest fees. I don't mind commission per trade being around 10 bucks, so the 5-12usd range is fine. I ONLY do straight stock trades. No options/mutual funds/forex I think... as I am a newbie.... I would also need easy documentation for tax purposes. This will be my first year paying capital gains/loss on my trading activity. I want that to be as smooth as possible. I will be getting a CPA for taxes this year, previously used TurboTax and did it myself.
I will have between 2500-10000usd in the account. I do some light day trading. (1-2 trades max a day, usually 1-2 trades every 1-2 weeks, AKA not a lot but still in short term range.)
I started because of the following reasons. I have a B.S. in International Economics from Texas Tech. I invest in E&P companies. I have four years experience working completions[frac jobs] in the oil industry, primarily the Permian Basin/Midland-Odessa of Texas. I have a lot of time on my hands while at work that doesn't interfere with my work quality and I can still watch/act on the market movements.
So far I think TradeKing is my best bet but not sure. Maybe Cobra Trading
Any advice is welcome!! Please help!
Hoping this was the right subforum, also posting in Investment
e: I have robinhood but was told it took 2-3 days for funds to clear trades. This doesn't work for me as sometimes I enteexit on the same day.
e2: I am going to be calling a good friend with 4 years experienced for JP Morgan today to clear up some confusion I believe is here due to terminology. Will update thread when I can more clearly explain myself.
I looked up margin accounts, PDT, and margin trading. As far as I know, I am not a margin trader, I do not trade on margin, nor have I done so. I have the cash backing up all trades I made. All trades I made/make have the equity/cash inside my brokerage account to back them up.
e3: I have a cash account, I want to stay cash account. PDT will apply to me. I do not have the funds to enter into margin trading nor the desire.
I am probably just needing to decide between tradekings and tradestation. They all seem the same cost wise just need to look into their tools and layouts and which one I enjoy.
Thanks for the help everyone.

Super Profit Scalper: it’s not what it seems to be
This particular review is concerned with a specific fraud that is doing rounds on the internet. It is called Super Profit Scalper, and it’s promising to change the life of any trader who will purchase it for $87.
The owner claims that he has put a lot of work into it, and that all you have to do is purchase it here and smile all the way to the bank since it does all the heavy lifting on your behalf.
Well, that’s very simple indeed. But how come that we still have a whooping 95% of traders donating their capital plus profits back into the Forex market? If such a magical trading tool truly existed, it would create a buzz. It would gain enough publicity on TV and reputable blogs on the web, and this would automatically reduce the 95% of losing traders to 20% or below. It does not make sense for these traders to keep losing when a real solution is available for $87 only. The things that we hope you will get concerned with
Nothing makes this product unique. It looks exactly like other Forex scams on the internet. For example, the owner doesn’t give us proof that his system works as claimed by him.
You see, Mt4 screenshots are not supposed to be treated as proof or verified results of past performance. This is because it is virtually impossible to know if indeed those results were generated by the so-called Super Profit Scalper system. Those screenshots could have been captured elsewhere on the internet for purposes of misleading traders.
It is not rocket science to take screenshots of past market activity and use them for purposes of cheating. It is therefore very clear that these are not true results generated by Super Profit scalper.
