We selectively offer market participants and ISVs Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to create custom applications and services around the ICE platform to suit specific needs, including customized algorithmic trading, risk management, data services and straight through processing.
Our iMpact data feed is the primary API for market data dissemination across a wide range of available products and ranges. We support TCP-based feeds as well as multicast data feeds.

Conformance testing is vital for determining whether an ISV or member-produced software application will interact correctly with ICE markets prior to accessing the live production environment.
Testing is carried out in test environments for all new applications and for major upgrades of the trading interfaces. The primary aim of the exchange is to protect the integrity of ICE markets for trading members and to provide a basic level of testing that minimizes the possibility of product failure. While the exchange offers a basic conformance test, all firms integrating to the platform are expected to thoroughly test their applications independent of the conformance process. Please contact us for any conformance related queries and to book conformance slots for developed applications.
