Describing the benefits of the latest platform release, Lee Staines, President of Celoxica told Forex Magnates “Our latest upgrade provides our clients with highly efficient trading product for both market data processing and order entry. The new hardware allows for an additional latency reduction as well as an increased throughput, while managing both the market data and order entry on the same FPGA board. Clients will find it easy to integrate our new solution with their current trading strategies due to a standardized shared memory C API across both product types. Also this new API is now supported across all major futures markets in the US and Europe.”
When asked about the target users, Staines explained “This new product will help grow our current user base of investment banks, large proprietary trading groups and execution services providers and extend our offerings to hedge funds and smaller proprietary trading groups either directly or through one of our co-location partners.” In regards to the platforms roll for FX trading, Staines added “In this roll out FX users can benefit off the changes on the CME FX markets and fixed income, commodities and equity index products across the derivatives exchanges. In an upcoming roll out we will specifically target the FX-only platforms like EBS, Currenex, Hotspot, FXAll and Reuters.”
