Fidessa has launched a new derivatives order-analytics service aimed at providing optimized precision and measurement of derivatives algorithms.
The service, integrated within Fidessa's global futures and options trading platform, comes in response to increased levels of automation through algorithmic trading allowing users to monitor and alter orders in real-time. The service will also provide a post-trade capability displaying performance for best execution as required by Markets in Financial Infrastructure (Mifid) II.
"We recognized early on that we would need a ground-up approach that reflected the order types and strategies that are unique to global derivatives markets," says Yuriy Shterk, head of derivatives product management at Fidessa. "Demand for this emerged from our FCM customers who, in turn, were being asked for better analytics by their own customers. Greater regulatory scrutiny means that the need to understand how orders are performing is becoming a critical issue."
