What are the trading platforms that have API's for R.

Hi guys,

I'm looking for some advice or practical experience with regards to choosing a trading platform which integrates well with R for automated trading.

Here's some context for my current system, I'm currently trading on Ninjatrader manually however I'm looking to create another sub-portfolio aimed at automated quantitative trading.

"Various platforms " - that webscrape, obtain and populate stock related data and store on an in-house SQL.
SQL - where I store all my stock data.
R - where I do all my analysis and backtesting.
"trading platform" - ideally takes trading signals generated in R and executes.

So I'm looking for advise as to what would be the best platform for the last step, any advice is appreciated. Are there also possibilities to create a full trading platform in R? (if so, resources?)
