All real-time market and execution data, as well as historical statistical analysis, are made available to the users and, more importantly, are used within the platform – be it a simple routing rule, or a highly complex algorithm.

This includes a granular view of the order (“what happened to my order!”),
and an aggregate view of how execution is progressing with historical comparison
– e.g. Venues Hit Ratio, latency, rejections, spread capture etc. This is all presented as an intuitive dashboard and online reports, fully available to the traders, quants and decision makers.


Full Execution
Real-Time Reports

Detailed reports and real time dashboards are generated for internal quant/dev teams to understand the execution logic and behaviour.


Automation includes full pre-trade logic engine, automated actions such as booking / allocations, post-trade message management,  complex algorithms and SOR, which acts as the most critical tool. This is all built within flexible workflows which adapt to your trading operations and goals.

As the market moves, the trading logic uses all the different data to update the decision tree. The trader has powerful tools to monitor the overall exceptions that impact the trading flow; it includes supervision front- end to monitor abnormalities – e.g. orders that stay too long to execute, paused algorithms or the Venue Rejects; multi-channel alerting mechanisms; and administration front- end to change in real-time any state machine / algorithm.


At any time, the trader is in control of the overall process: starting from the granular (order-by-order), rolling up to the holistic view of the trading built- in intuitive representations. Traders and admins can then take control of every single order/algorithm; for instance, an algorithm can be paused / restarted with minimal risk taken. The exception management concepts provide the ability to focus on what is important and needs attention, and to understand how the trading is progressing on the platform. Finally, it has the ability to self-manage / administrate the parameters and logic of the risk, OMS, routing and algorithms. Every change is immediately taken by the platform.
