    In 1994 it all started with stocks only – today, FIX is the global standard for trading in all asset classes and for the distribution of market data. FIXatdl (FIX Algorithmic Trading Definition Language) has been the latest initiative to standardize algorithmic trading of securities. Different FIX Protocol versions (4.2., 4.3, 4.4, and 5.0) are being used, depending on asset class and use case.
