Trading strategy R&D is NOT trivial. Strategies can look incredibly promising when tested against bar charts but then deliver negative P&L in production.

Deltix and Object Trading have teamed up to provide a platform that helps improve data collection, model development, back-testing, simulation and live trading — all in one integrated solution.

Join us for a demonstration of how this integrated platform can help medium and large trading firms improve strategies and potentially unlock hidden alpha.

  • Research strategies and back-test your ideas
  • Record and store terabytes of market data for back-testing
  • Back-test, simulate and trade all on the same platform
  • Minimize latency by deploying algos in close proximity to exchange matching engines

You’ll see that a key to success is precision: see how and why a strategy works. Or doesn’t work.

This demonstration is geared toward mid-sized to large trading firms with a dedicated research budget. Complete the registration form to view the webinar recording.
