A client is nothing but the user of AutoTrader. Different users use APIs as per their environment. Some examples are:
- AutoTrader Web interface
- AmiBroker library
- Excel library or tools
- MetaTrader library
- Java library
- C# library
- Python library
- HTTP Rest
Depending on your requirement, you will choose one of the ways mentioned above to connect.
AutoTrader Web Interface
In a scenario, when a user manually wants to trade into multiple accounts (Example, place a single order in many accounts across different brokers); he/she will use AutoTrader Web Interface to trade.
There is no specific client setup needed in this scenario.
The details of the requests are given in API docs.
You need to pass your secret API key in HTTP header.
Remaining use cases are explained in detail in following chapters.
