Object Trading provides independent, ready-to-trade market access infrastructure for all types of electronic trading including screen execution, algorithmic and DMA client types. Our platform provides choices for trading where you want, how you want, using your preferred tools.
Our technology partner programme is built upon three core principles:
1. Specialised Trading Technologies Beat the One-stop Shop
The idea of limiting trading screen options and buying everything from a “one-stop shop” is tempting. But no one vendor has the requisite expertise in all areas.
2. Decoupling Trading Screens from Market Access Increases Flexibility
Decoupling order generation from market access infrastructure drastically reduces complexity and cost while increasing flexibility and the ability to innovate. Buy-sides also can change or build new order generation functionality without a constant need to update or re-write the exchange connectivity layer.
3. Vendor-Neutral Direct Market Access
Instead of building and maintaining our own screens, dozens of specialised screen vendors partner with us to provide integrations available no matter which deployment model you choose. These trading technology providers integrate their order generation and risk management systems to our APIs, so brokers and buy-sides who use Object Trading’s gateways can add these vendor systems without needing to do any back-end integration.
There’s no limit to the number of trading screen vendors, data feeds, news services, risk management systems, and more that you can connect to the DMA platform’s standard interfaces. This gives you a flexible infrastructure to support your traders and implement your best strategies. It’s easy to integrate new vendor products or internally developed trading systems with the platform using our normalised API or FIX interface.
The following trading technology and screen vendor firms are amongst those currently integrated with the Object Trading Direct Market Access Platform. For the full list of our partners, or to find out how we can add your favourite screen provider or internally built system, email us or call us.
