InfoReach Showcases High-Frequency Trading Module at FIA Expo 09, October 21 – 22, 2009, Chicago Hilton, Booth #1611
Latest addition to InfoReach TMS trading platform lets firms employ high-frequency algorithmic trading strategies without the need for costly development
Chicago, IL, October 20, 2009 — InfoReach (www.inforeachinc.com), a global provider of execution management technology, will demonstrate its new HiFREQ High-Frequency Trading module at the 25th Annual Futures & Options Expo, October 21 – 22, at the Hilton Chicago.
An optional component of the InfoReach TMS (trade management system), HiFREQ facilitates the rapid deployment of high frequency trading (HFT) strategies for global equities, futures and FX trading. It is specifically geared toward firms and traders who want to use HFT strategies without having to invest in costly technology and employ a team of engineers to develop and maintain software components.
High-frequency trading, which already accounts for about two-thirds of U.S. equities volume, is used to profit from inefficiencies in a particular market, as well as arbitrage across multiple asset classes (e.g., futures index and cash equities) and exchanges. Industry analyst TABB Group estimates that annual aggregate profits of low latency arbitrage strategies currently exceed US $21 billion, mostly spread out among the few hundred firms who can afford the technology.
“In the HFT arena, smaller firms and prop traders have not been able to compete with the large firms that invest many millions of dollars in technology and staff,“ comments Allen Zaydlin, CEO of InfoReach. “HiFREQ levels the playing field by providing them with the scalable technology to facilitate more than 10,000 orders per second-at microsecond latency.“
The InfoReach TMS is a powerful, multi-asset class Execution Management System (EMS) that manages equities, futures, options and foreign exchange. The TMS combines rule-based trading, algorithmic trading, real-time position monitoring, portfolio trading capabilities, order management and FIX connectivity in a single, broker-neutral trading platform. InfoReach TMS connects to multiple brokers, exchanges, ECNs and other pools of liquidity around the world.
Attendees of FIA Expo 09 can also request demonstrations of the InfoReach TMS at the InfoReach Booth, #1611. The Hilton Chicago is located at 720 South Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago.
