Advanced Markets and Fortex Launch Algo X an Open Standard Algo Programming Engine

Advanced Markets says its entire technology infrastructure was developed by Fortex as a single, unitary system. This approach minimizes inter-system

AMlogoAdvanced Markets Ltd, the FX and metals wholesale liquidity provider, and Fortex Inc., an independent developer of real-time, multi-asset trading platforms, today released Algo X, a new open source algorithmic engine that enables traders to develop algorithms in standard computer languages including the popular JavaScript and C#.

The Algo X engine runs within Fortex 6, a new front-end trading platform which Advanced Markets supports with low latency Direct Market Access (DMA) to its multi-bank liquidity pool. The firm explained that trades are routed to liquidity providers in less than 10 microseconds, often enabling trade executions on the price that triggered the algorithm’s buy or sell signal.

“We believe Algo X advances the state of the art for algorithmic trading in ways that have a powerful impact on trading performance,” said Daniel Chen, CEO, Fortex Inc. “The combination of the new engine and Advanced Markets’ low latency DMA multi-bank liquidity paradigm drives institutional-grade trade executions for algorithmic traders.”

The new platform and algorithmic engine are the latest new product releases by the technology firm with Advanced Markets. In June 2012, the two firms launched UltiMT which provides operational performance and stability for MT4 brokers. Advanced Markets says its entire technology infrastructure was developed by Fortex as a single, unitary system. This approach minimizes intersystem connection points that slow system performance and operating reliability.
