The Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocol is a message standard designed to facilitate the electronic exchange of securities-related information between brokerage houses, Electronic Communication Networks (ECNs), custodians, and banks. FIX was originally defined for use in supporting U.S. domestic equity trading with message traffic flowing directly between principals. As the protocol evolved, a number of fields were added to support limited cross-border and fixed income trading. Similarly, the protocol was expanded to allow third parties to participate in the delivery of messages between trading partners. As subsequent versions of FIX are released, it is expected that functionality will continue to expand. FIX was written to be independent of any specific communications protocol or physical medium chosen for electronic data delivery. It is a relatively easy-to-implement, open standard for communicating financial information in a secure but nonproprietary way between two parties.

Amtex FIX Engine is a 100% Java engine that provides support for FIX protocol levels 4.0 and up. It is a highly scalable FIX Engine suitable for medium size fund managers, brokers and exchanges as well as smaller companies who use the FIX protocol.
