Open API

There are two different environments available for the Saxo OpenAPI.

The Simulation Environment

The Saxo Simulation environment or demo environment is copy of our live environment with a free simulated $100.000 account value. It is a real production environment and it is used by thousands of leads every day, who try out our trading platforms. However technical issues with the simulation environment are handled with lower priority than issues in the live environment.

Our documentation and samples all run against the simulation environment.

It is only possible to get a one-day token to the simulation environment.

Both the simulation and live environment supports the full set of standard security flow.

You can only get a token for the live environment by going through one of the security flows. These flows require the presentation of an application key and application secrect, which you will have received from Saxo.

The application key and secret will be different in the simulation and live environments.
