Linedata Adds Venue Info to Trader+
Traders Magazine Online News, February 3, 2013
The data, which is a part of FIX Tag 30, is available in real time whenever the system receives a trade report, according to Linedata. The data on where all fills are executed then gets displayed in the form of a constantly changing pie chart, with each slice representing a different venue.
The vendor made the feature—called “Execution Analyser”—available in response to demand from its buyside clients, according to Dave Hagen, vice president of global trading technologies for Linedata and the executive responsible for Trader+ as well as the Longview order management system.
“Transparency into order routing is a hot topic these days,” Hagen said. “With this you can compare your fills from one venue to the next. It gives traders some really good intel that they have been asking for.”
In addition to the names of the market centers at which their orders are filled, some on the buyside are asking for information about the “hops,” or stops at other markets Salong the way to the order’s final destination. Hagen explained that Linedata is unable to make that information available because the sellside does not yet supply it. Given the huge amount of data involved, the cost to build the infrastructure to process the data may be prohibitive, Hagen noted.
Trader+ is, in effect, a merging of an execution management system built by Linedata two years ago with the company’s flagship Longview OMS.
