Trading keys and read-only keys
Every exchange offer trading and read-only API keys which can be added to an in-house OMS, or the likes of Deltix and Meta Trader.
You can request read-only and trading keys through your dedicated Support Rep. The Support Rep will guide you on how to receive and activate the key. Due to security reasons this will be done via a one-time, self-expiring message. Therefore please plan to stay online if you request new API Keys.
Most of the read-only and trading API keys, if not IP whitelisted, are active for 90 days from the date they were created, except on Binance which recently changed their trading key active period from 90 days to 30 days.
As a security measure, almost every exchange offers the possibility to whitelist IP addresses in order to limit the risk of having any unknown person(s) use your API keys.
We strongly recommend whitelisting IP addresses in order to have the trading and read-only keys permanently open.
