At the same time, UBS Securities will use the Orc Flow Control system to provide multi-market pre-trade risk controls in accordance with the appropriate regulatory frameworks. The brokers will be able to set up limits and monitor trading activity in real time for all participants across all markets from the solution.

Amongst the features that stand out are limits based on theoretical values, which can be very beneficial as firms can control their order flow based on various market scenarios.
