Spotware, an award-winning financial technology provider, has announced the release of cTrader Open API 2.0, the new Open API of its flagship Forex and CFD trading platform, cTrader.

These new tools and features offer added value to cTrader platform, allowing traders to have access to a larger variety of services.
