A local High-Frequency Miami startup needed to re-install their current software into their new upgraded collocated server. Once finished, we found out that they were having huge system latencies, and why profitability was decreasing month after month.
After a deep analysis of their HFT system’s source code, we found out that, across the whole system, they were giving up profits because latencies, 80% of them because a bad software design. We decided to build a brand new system from scratch, with a focus in low latency and performance. Using C/C++ languages and making sure that every line of code were “latency proof”. Multhithreading, parallel programming, avoiding memory locks as much as possible, no databases, and a real-time dashboard to adjust all their system trading parameters. Once we put the system live, we saw a 46% increment in their profit.
