Saxo Bank plans to implement changes to OpenAPI in Feb 2021
Multi-asset trading and investment specialist Saxo Bank has unveiled planned changes to its OpenAPI, with the changes set to be implemented in or after February 1, 2021.
For starters, Saxo plans correction of naming in the AutoTrading service group. The developer team will be correcting two field names within the at/v3/tradeleaders resource:
- MaxInvestAmt and MaxInvestAmtDescription will be removed during February 2021;
- MaxInvestmentAmount and MaxInvestmentAmountDescription will be added during December 2020 to replace them.
Furthermore, Saxo aims to remove of ISINCode field from certain endpoints in ClientServices:
Finally, the developers will remove the CashAvailableForWithdrawal from port/v1/balances.
The value returned was not always accurate, and improving this would be computationally very expensive, especially for an endpoint which is used heavily. Applications which require this number – for the purpose of letting a client determine how much money to actually withdraw – can explicitly call the atr/v1/cashmanagement/withdrawallimits endpoint.
Let’s recall that Saxo Bank has recently unveiled a new release of its OpenAPI. The changes affect the Asset Transfers, Trading and Portfolio service groups.
Saxo Bank regularly updates its OpenAPI, which is the backbone of trading platforms such as SaxoTraderGO. It offers access to all resources and functionality required to build a high-performance multi-asset trading platform, as well as better integration with Saxo Bank for partners and affiliates through a growing set of resources, such as Saxo’s Onboarding API.
