PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD – FIX Orchestra V1.0 Release Candidate 5

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD – FIX Orchestra V1.0 Release Candidate 5

This proposal from the FIX Orchestra Subgroup provides the details of the FIX Orchestra Technical Standard Release Candidate 5 V1.0.

FIX Orchestra was conceived as machine readable rules of engagement between counterparties. As such, it is a standard for exchange of metadata about the behavior of FIX applications. Orchestra is intended to cut time to on-board counterparties and improve accuracy of implementations.

FIX Orchestra does not change FIX protocol itself in any way, nor does it make obsolete existing FIX engines or tools.

The fifth release candidate documents for FIX Orchestra can be found here:

    This release candidate now enters a public comment period in which public review and feedback is encouraged. The public comment period will run for a period of 90 days beginning on the 20th of September 2019.
