With our inaugural Intelligent Trading Summit behind us a couple of weeks ago, the show moves on to New York where, on May 13, we will kick off another packed agenda with a keynote and panel discussion examining the key attributes of what is required from an Intelligent Trading architecture.

March 13, 2014

What a great way to get involved with a new company. After only a few weeks on board with The A-Team Group it was all systems go for our two flagship events in London last week, where we were able to showcase the range of industry debate around the market dynamics driving pre- and post-trade technology activity.

March 7, 2014

The combination of more complex markets, tougher regulatory scrutiny, increased competition and shrinking margins is driving the consideration (and adoption) of more efficient and cost-effective business models. These include the integration of trade execution and analytic capabilities that not only enable better-informed trading decisions, but incorporate real-time risk management and performance measurement that improve efficiency and customer communication. The panel will examine not only how fast and widespread the adoption of these can develop, but whether they will also be driven by the use of managed services or SaaS (pay-as-you-go) models.

  • Peter Farley, Director, A-Team Group (Moderator)
  • James Blackburn, Global Head of Equities Product Marketing, Fidessa
  • William Fenick, Strategy and Marketing Director, Financial Services, Interxion
  • Adam Hawley, Director, Managed Services, Caplin Systems

Today we are re-launching Low-Latency.com as IntelligentTradingTechnology.com. We've discussed before why this evolution is happening ... but here's the elevator pitch on the expanded focus of this website and community: It's about Big Data, streaming in real-time, and being processed by high performance predictive Analytics, to initiate the most profitable trades, executed with Low Latency, and subject to trade-time risk controls.

November 4, 2013

In the financial markets, the only constant is change ... and over the past couple of years, the world of low latency has changed. At one time, reducing latency was an arms race, with zero as the finish line. Now, with the race close to a conclusion, the focus is shifting to the high performance compute and big data management technologies required to drive predictive analytics for real time trading.

TWO NEW RECORD PEAKS: Deutsche Borse CEF Core Scoach and BATS Options MCASTPITCH AGG.

This month’s bulletin from the Financial Information Forum (FIF) finds that SIAC OPRA was up 5% to 5,081,671 mps over the 1 second interval.

When one hears the term 'Big Data' one is drawn to thinking about batch analysis of vast datasets, such as web logs, click streams and, apparently, phone records. Technologies like Hadoop and NoSQL are mentioned, already in the context of their lack of performance, and murky ROI. But in the financial markets, the world of big data is different: it's real-time, it's high velocity, and it packs enormous value. Which is why we're continuing to focus on how low-latency technologies are converging with the big data world to move beyond simple - and increasingly obsolete - 'fastest execution' trading models.

NO RECORD PEAKS:

This month’s bulletin from the Financial Information Forum (FIF) finds that SIAC OPRA was down 27% to 4,817,833 mps over the 1 second interval.

Following on from last month's announcement of Ultra Messaging SMX, Informatica has published a range of latency and throughput performance figures for the shared memory transport, covering a number of programming languages. Messaging latency as low as 39 nanoseconds was recorded, with overall latency more than 16 times lower than tests conducted on an earlier version of the transport, conducted in May 2010.

Storage vendor DataDirect Networks is pointing to new record benchmark results for financial analytics for its SFA12K-40 platform. The benchmark in question in the STAC-M3 suite, covering a number of operations on a time series of data.  DDN says its hybrid spinning disk and flash memory platform outperformed "traditional storage" by a factor of eight, and was nearly twice the performance of other flash storage.
