TT® Desktop: A Powerful, New Reason to Want the TT Platform

Adding the most performant front-end application to the world’s fastest commercially available futures trading platform.

Trading Technologies is very proud to announce the release of the new TT Desktop application. This release is a significant step forward for the TT platform, and a significant technical feat in its own right. What it means for our customers is that even the largest, most complex workspaces will thrive on TT Desktop, enabling access to the industry-leading benefits of the TT platform for our most demanding customers.

During my time as a trader, one of the most important things for me was performance. To me, “performance” meant both low-latency order execution for my automated strategies as well as a front-end that remained responsive under incredibly heavy load. I actively traded around 75 instruments on any given day and managed hundreds of unique algo instances. As a long-time customer of Trading Technologies, I directly benefited from their decades-long tradition of catering to the most demanding and sophisticated professional traders.

TT® at Two

It’s been just over two years since we officially launched the TT platform here at the annual FIA Conference in Boca Raton. It’s been even longer—approaching five years—since taking our very first steps toward what many outside of TT thought was a crazy idea: that Software-as-a-Service could redefine our industry the way it had so many others.

So when I was asked to give a few brief thoughts on the second year of life of the TT platform and what it’s meant for our company and, more importantly, our clients, I could only think of one analogy that best describes it. That’s right: my two-year-old twin toddlers.

Next-Generation Market Access

In my last post, I described the FIX solution provided by TT as “FIX-as-a-service” (FaaS). Indeed, one of the differentiators of TT is that it is a suite of professional trading services delivered using the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model: services that are available from anywhere, on demand, without the need for any pre-allocation of infrastructure or deployment of software.

This is what makes our FIX offering compelling (along with the performance improvements we’ve made along the way), but FaaS is a launching point for two other services that separate TT from the typical “off-the-shelf” trading system: market access and compliance/data-retention.

Bringing Sexy Back…to FIX

By the time I entered capital markets more than a decade ago, FIX had already become mundane, boring. FIX is essential, but so are eating vegetables, drinking water and exercise. None of those are things I really want to do, and they certainly aren’t worth blogging about.

But for the first time in my career, I’m actually excited to talk about FIX. By leveraging the hybrid architecture of TT®, we are putting a modern twist on the boring service of FIX, which we are calling FIX-as-a-service, or FaaS.
