Saxo trading in Excel

The OpenAPI plugin for Excel works both as a supplement to the SaxoTraderPRO platform and as a complete stand-alone solution. Use it to create your own custom workspaces with native VBA and excel functionality.  

OpenAPI for Excel makes it possible to create a custom trading experience unhindered by the restraints of a platform. OpenAPI for Excel includes the ability to send automated bulk trades, conduct automated hedging, trade on algo output, trade at specific times based on dynamic data – and much more.

OpenAPI for Excel lets you trade specific times based on dynamic data, bulk trade on behalf of multiple clients or accounts, get access to real time data on positions, orders and balances directly in Excel for reconciliation purposes or risk monitoring – and much more.

If you are new to Saxo you can test the solution in our demo environment for up to one month. If you are already a client with us you can get a ‘view only’ access (trading disabled) to your live account free of charge.
