The tutorial is a very simple step-by-step introduction to using the OpenAPI. By following these steps you will:

  • Get user and client information.
  • Get account and balance information.
  • Explore the list of tradable instruments and request prices for a few FX currency crosses.
  • Place a limit order and see that the order is entered in the system.
  • Change the limit order to a market order and see that it is executed.
  • See that a position has been created.

The purpose is to give you a feel for what the SaxoOpenAPI can do. You can of course do a "view source" to inspect the code, but a lot of the concepts demonstrated in the tutorial are also repeated in as small snippets or samples in other places of this documentation site.
