Otherwise, you can rely on us to give you full service and get you ready with all your requirements.

Order Management System

Ability to integrate with your current OMS, or to use the internal low latency for easy order tracking.

Our real-time order management systems (OMS) and order blotter manage all your order activity and the associated data.

Additionally, we provide an internal Smart Order Routing (SOR) module to increase the execution efficiency and lower the market impact. Smart Order Router is a crucial component of each execution. Its role is to successfully execute a chosen strategy, achieving more than just the best price.

Market access

In the quest for market access and competitive sources of liquidity, institutions are often faced with the challenge of integrating with the APIs and trading platforms of multiple dealers, brokers, and market makers. We also integrate the most traded cryptocurrency exchanges.

Our platform supports multiple protocols (including FIX, REST, WebSockets, and proprietary APIs), and our protocol and asset-class agnostic platform, enables clients to quickly onboard via their preferred messaging format.

Monitoring & GUI

Our main platform is a black-box that resides in your server without human intervention.

However, we have developed a state of the art User-Interfaces, to give traders full control over the flow, risk, and monitoring.

For that, we use our proprietary desktop application and the best open-source web-based systems (Reactive Trader), to give you the best-in-class user interfaces.

Facts

High Performance

Ability to handle big volumes of data, with rates of more than +20 terabytes per day, with spikes of 3 gigabytes per second or more. This means handling 100,000-200,000 messages per second during high-volume periods.

Handling Data Bursts

Data rates of 20+ terabytes/day with spikes of 300 megabytes/second or more. The individual messages average about 20 bytes each so this means handling 100M-200M messages per second during high volume periods.

Integration

Ability to easily integrate, using common protocols like WebSocket and REST, to consume internal data (market, positions, risk) from external systems.

Clear Measures

Tick-to-trade is measured as the time between two correlated TCP packets on the wire: an incoming Incremental Market Data Refresh (FIX = ‘X’) and an outgoing New Single order (FIX = ‘D’) packet on the wire.
