For more information, you can read our complete report here.

What are the best practices when designing HFT systems?

Depending on different factors, markets, and compliances, this may vary, but some basics will remain the same for any trading system.

The key factor here is being able to handle a big amount of incoming information, response time to external events, internal response time, and capabilities to provide the highest throughput and lowest latency.

These are the usual challenges:

  • The system must be able to handle multiple strategies, making sure that the system will not underperform as we add more strategies.
  • Order book reconstruction from different venues. If we take as an example like the forex market, there are tons of different venues and ECNs, all of them using different API and connectivity standards. The system must be able to handle those different sources and aggregate them into an internal and well-defined data structure.
