Looking for broker with free java api
 
As the title states, I want something free to test my strategies. Don't care if it is stocks, fx or commodities.... Anyone know of any brokers that do this? Thanks guys!

thanks for the reply but MBT doesn't have a java api. IB's java api isn't free. I already looked. They have an algo trading olympiad that is free for students. I have a .edu email id, but you also need proof that you are registered for classes this semester.

I use IBs TWS API for free. Trouble is, their demo sucks. You must have a funded acct to get the good simulator data.

MB also has a FIX product which you could use QuickFix/J in conjunction with.

Dukascopy
And if you need to do an accurate tick-by-tick backtesting for me they are the best
