This is the third in a series of blog posts on MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II). If you missed the earlier posts, see MiFID II: How Did We Get Here and What Does it Mean? and MiFID II and Algorithmic Trading: What You Need to Know Now.
In this post, we take a look at MiFID II testing implications for investment firms engaged in algorithmic trading and review Trading Technologies’ solutions.
Our latest software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, the TT® platform, allows customers to benefit from the lowest latency order messaging rates publicly available via an off-the-shelf trading platform. Reducing the number of instructions required to be machine-code translated by compilers and processed by the CPU radically improves time-critical efficiencies. The TT platform achieves much of this high-speed performance via their highly optimized code base and by leveraging proven techniques such as network stack kernel bypass. This combination is applied throughout the critical trading path, from market data ingestions to analytics and trade decision logic and on through to market order access.
