HFT Technologies LLC has announced the release of two new applications that give developers and traders of algorithmic trading strategies even faster direct market access to prices and orders at CME and its partner exchanges. Both the Ultra Low Latency Price Feed Handler and the FIX Order Gateway are CME-certified and are available now for all major developer platforms.
“Virtually all operations have been clocked under 10 microseconds,” said Tony Verga, CEO, HFT Technologies. “Many have been completed under 6 microseconds, and we are continually working on ways to achieve even lower latencies.”
Because these applications are pre-certified by CME Group and include full audit trail compliance, testing time and costs are significantly reduced. In addition to faster time to market, the lighter, simpler API uses less CPU, whether installed on Windows C++, Linux ,or .NET platforms.
A sample application is available to help developers plan for API usage and to help end users adapt quickly. Both the Feed Handler and the FIX Order Gateway are available as stand-alone applications, or can be customized for individual firm needs by HFT Technologies. Complete proximity co-hosting at CME’s Aurora Data Center and 10gig networking solutions are also available to help trading firms get up and running quickly.
“Just add your algorithm to our library and you’ll have full direct access to CME Group exchanges,” said Verga.
