TORA Launches Customizable Pairs Trader
TORA Pairs Trader is specifically designed from the ground up and incorporates a blotter solely for pairs. The application provides a high degree of control over the execution via a series of parameters such as tolerance, slippage, slicing and concurrency. There is full support for bulk uploads and there is capacity to trade thousands of pairs concurrently. Within the application, there is also an alert management platform highlighting price volatility and hung legs.
“This will appeal to the buy side because Pairs Trader delivers flexibility and performance for an increasingly popular pan-Asian and global strategy” said Gerrit Van Wingerden, Managing Director, Product Development at TORA, “The Pairs Trader is another example of our ability to deliver custom automated strategies from our Algorithmic Trading Development Toolkit”.
“The Pairs Trader has enabled us to trade much more efficiently, our completion of executions has increased significantly especially in volatile market conditions” said Mike Munns, CIO of Prodigal Capital in Sydney, ”The reason we chose TORA was their ability to deliver a customized solution quickly and support it fully”.
The application went live in Q4 2012 and is currently trading for clients across 15 markets in multiple assets. TORA Pairs Trader is available for all TORA Compass and TORA EMS clients.
