E*Trade Pro API
E*Trade's open XML-based Application Programming Interface allows traders to use industry-leading trading software to execute trades directly through E*Trade. No additional software is needed. This feature offers E*Trade Pro users an additional level of customization and control - whether developing custom solutions or just looking to expand functionality with third-party applications.

Strategy Builder
Traders have access to a variety of pre-defined strategies and the ability to customize strategies by opening the Strategy Scanner window (click on the Strategy Scanner icon in the Tools ribbon), shown in Figure 37. From here, users can select from the existing strategies, or create a new one by clicking on "Strategy" at the top of the window and selecting "Strategy Wizard."
