I am developing a scalping system for currency trading and need some help in creating robust, secure and fast API's for receiving price quotes and processing trades.
The APIs will be for MB Trading and Interactive Brokers. Both of which have good documentation and support.
It is critical that these APIs process quotes and trades as fast as possible, however whichever language is most appropriate for speed will be required. Specifically I'm looking for someone who has experience of high-performance algorithms using concurrent programming (i.e. threads).
The ideal programmer for this job will be someone who has developed similar trading system APIs before and who is familiar with the problems associated with server/network problems etc. and error handling.
