High Frequency Trading a Central Aim
The company already boasts a robust offering in its POSIT Alert trading system, its Triton platforms and Smart Trading Analytics package. According to Jeff Bacidore, Head of Algorithmic Trading at ITG, “ITG Smart Limit Algorithm enables institutional traders to compete effectively with high frequency traders when supplying liquidity since it uses similar trading technology and techniques. Clients can use SLimit directly when working orders manually or indirectly when using an existing ITG algorithm.”
Indeed, the Smart Limit Algorithm grants users access to its entire comprehensive service package, streamlining trading needs. Traders in forex, or any high-volume avenue can benefit from the algorithm’s advanced operations module, whilst avoiding traditional high latency setbacks that typically serve as deterrents for users.
