Our first Google Hangout (below) featuring TT’s newest algorithmic trading tool, ADL, was so well received that we’re gearing up to produce another live broadcast on Tuesday, December 18th, at 3:30 p.m. CST.

In our second episode, Product Manager John Yoo and Senior Business Analyst Tom Zagara will build the exit-side logic to the scalper algorithm introduced in the first episode. In doing so, they’ll also cover the Value Extractor Block and the concept of “virtualization”.

To watch the live broadcast, come to our YouTube channel, TradingTechTV, at 3:30 p.m. CST on Tuesday. No registration, login or special software is required. If you can’t watch us live, we’ll post the recording to TradingTechTV shortly after the event has concluded.

UPDATE: If you missed our live webinar with Eris Exchange, you can view the recording here.As announced in September and discussed here on Trade Talk, TT will launch connectivity to Eris Exchange in early 2013.

We recently started moving our corporate IT infrastructure to Google’s enterprise solution. It’s a big change, but I’m really excited about this from a marketing perspective because Google offers some pretty amazing collaboration tools. One of these is Google Hangouts on Air.

This Thursday, November 8th, at 3:30 p.m. CT, we will stream our first Hangout. Our broadcast won’t be formal or scripted, with fancy graphics or an elaborate set. In fact, it won’t even be tied to TT’s official corporate YouTube channel, which will launch soon. But we see incredible potential for Hangouts as a way to talk about our products and engage our users, so we’re going to dive in and experiment.
Our debut broadcast will feature Product Manager John Yoo and Senior Business Analyst Tom Zagara. They will present TT’s newest algorithmic trading tool, ADL. While you watch, they will also build and launch an actual trading strategy—live—using ADL.

To access our Hangout, just come to John’s YouTube channel at 3:30 p.m. CT on Thursday. Our broadcast will automatically play. No registration, login or special software is required. Note Chrome and Internet Explorer are supported, but Firefox may not be compatible. If you can’t make it for the live broadcast, you’ll be able to access a recording on John’s YouTube channel after the event concludes.

Hope you can “hangout” with us.

Today marks the debut of Trading Technologies’ official corporate blog, Trade
Talk. On behalf of my colleagues, I’m excited to have another way to
communicate with our global community of customers, partners, employees and
others who have taken an interest in TT.

Who You’ll “Meet” Here

All of our product managers will write for Trade Talk. They are the folks who
lead the evolution of our product line on a day-to-day basis. They know our
software and the markets we serve inside and out, and they’ll provide our
readers with interesting content and commentary regarding a broad swath of
topics. We think you’ll enjoy hearing from them.

What You Can Expect to Find

We’ll write regularly about TT’s software, of course. We’ll offer “tips and
tricks,” introduce new features and products, explore existing capabilities and
present interesting use cases to help our customers best leverage our platform.

But we also plan to elevate the discussion beyond TT-centric topics and examine
key issues facing our industry. If something important happens in our world,
you might find us offering an analysis or opinion here.

Given that the range of topics we plan to discuss is wide-ranging, we hope
Trade Talk will become a place you’ll visit regularly for provocative content,
even if you’re not a TT customer—or, for that matter, not a trader. That
