S&P Capital IQ's Real-Time Solutions has announced the release of QuantFactory 5.3.2, the new version of its automated trading platform.
QuantFactory offers a development and automation environment for quantitative trading strategies. The Genetic Algorithm feature allows for parallelization in back-testing scenarios, enhancing production time for models and strategies.
"The new Genetic Algorithm features will allow clients to accelerate the time to market of their automated trading models," says Stephane Leroy, VP and head of Global Real-Time Solutions. "Parallelization is a fantastic way to run multiple backtests to identify the best trading parameters in a very short period of time."
