Superior execution relies on superior market data. Whether you’re supplying data to your algorithmic strategies at high speed, supporting a prop desk or institutional trading, reliable, complete, comprehensive and accurate market data is mission critical.

We offer real-time quote delivery system which provides a flexible, streamlined toolkit that normalizes data from all sources. It features point-to-point connectivity to market centers and supports equity and options market data.

Features include:

  • Latency: runs at an average of 75 Microseconds through box latency under load.
  • Throughput: sustained output generated 1 Gigabit/second, 2.2 Million Messages/second.
  • High Availability: every system is backed up with a warm standby unit to take over seamlessly in the event of a critical system failure.
  • Per-Symbol Subscription Services: Subscription-based platform allowing clients to request quotes on a per-security basis. This allows clients to customize the feed to receive only the symbols they desire.
  • Book State Replay / Book Resynchronization: System keeps book state internally. When subscription requests are performed, the system first sends a "Start-of-Book" message, and then replays a current snapshot of the book followed with an "End-of-Book" message, which is followed with real-time quotes. This allows clients to subscribe to symbols intraday without requiring rewinds to reconstitute current book state.

The quote delivery system was developed using a best practices approach. Its design was scrutinized through a rigorous functional, architectural, and detailed design process.

Interface Options

All current interface implementations are TCP/IP-based providing reliable per-message service.

Java API Support: JAVA-based thin API provides simple calls for login, subscription, and provides a callback interface to implement handlers for quotes and ticks.

C++ API: We provide a C++ interface that is semantically identical to our JAVA API. System resources are based on standard POSIX support which runs on Linux using GCC and can be easily ported to Windows.
