OUR ADVANCED EXECUTION ALGORITHMS AND TRANSACTION COST ANALYSIS (TCA) SERVICES  QUANTIFY AND HELP REDUCE THE UNCERTAIN COSTS OF TRADING IN AN EVER-CHANGING MARKET.

Advanced Algorithmic Execution Strategies

A full suite of execution algorithms built by a team of practitioners with broad experience in quantitative asset management, trading technology, and implementing low latency strategies.

Low latency feedhandling & colocation improve order priority and fill rates, avoiding losing ground on pricing accuracy to high frequency traders.

Advanced, contract specific volume forecasts to account for liquidity differences across the futures curve.

Production orders continuously mirrored to a tick-by-tick simulation environment, to monitor alignment of research and development with real life fill quality.

Intelligence Matters. Speed Matters.

Our intelligent order placement techniques improve passive fill rates, and when combined

with RCM-X’s high-speed child order placement capabilities to get to the exchange faster than competing

orders it means better fill prices and less missed opportunities for your trades

ALGORITHMS

Core Suite of RCM-X Algo Strategies

  • VWAP
  • TWAP
  • POV
  • SCALEPOV
  • BRISK
  • CLOSE
  • PROWLER

Execution Objective: Executes based an expected volume-based schedule

Key Features:

  • Utilizes historical volume profiles to execute at scheduled intervals while
    seeking to minimize slippage against the volume weighted average price.
  • Volume profiles take into account product specific days to expiry and
    seasonality effects
  • Attempts to utilize short term signals to dynamically capture the spread
    or cross take advantage of favorable prices

Execution Objective: Execute at a consistent rate over a defined time-based schedule

Key Features:

  • Executes evenly across a user defined time based interval
  • Attempts to utilize short term signals to optimize execution performance
  • Utilizes anti-gaming features

Execution Objective: Executes at a consistent percentage rate in line with the market

Key Features:

  • Executes evenly as a percentage of volume traded in the market
  • Attempts to passively collect the spread but will cross when required to
    stay in line with define participation rate
  • Utilizes anti-gaming features

Execution Objective: Dynamically adjusts target participation rate as a function of real-time market conditions relative to a chosen benchmark

Key Features: 

  • Executes as a percentage of volume traded in the market within a range
    as defined by the min and max participation rates
  • Trade more or less aggressively based on market conditions
  • Attempts to passively collect the spread but will cross when required to
    stay in line with define participation rate
  • Utilizes anti-gaming features

 

Execution Objective: Minimize risk adjusted slippage relative to arrival price, while also balancing slippage against order completion risk at the limit price.

Key Features: 

  • Leverages short-term signals to opportunistically reduce execution slippage
  • Dynamically balances between working child orders passively, or crossing the spread
  • Takes into account exchange matching engine logic
  • Utilizes anti-gaming logic
  • User will have the option to enable logic that will attempt to complete the order at the defined limit price.

Execution Objective: Specifically designed to execute into the close

Key Features:

  • Utilizes historical volume profiles while seeking to minimize slippage to the closing / settlement price
  • Picks up passive liquidity on the onset and looks to aggress and actively participate in most active periods of the close.

Execution Objective: Tactically execute a parent order utilizing synthetic child orders to minimize footprint, total size and price  objectives

Key Features:

  • Works passively priced orders by placing synthetic child orders with several configuration options available including:
    • Randomized iceberg orders
    • Order pegging
    • Multi-level order posting
    • Sniping
  • Utilizes anti-gaming features

 

Bespoke Algorithms
