Horizon Algo Trader is a flexible and robust solution that enables buy-side and sell-side institutions to develop and deploy proprietary algorithmic trading strategies.
From basic operations, such as sending orders, to highly sophisticated strategies, Horizon Algo Trader automates every action and leverages all the features of the Horizon Software suite: pre-trade safety nets, basket trading, advanced order management, trading automatons, volatility management, pricing, position keeping, hedging, etc.
Horizon Algo Trader handles cross-asset and cross-product trading strategies on cash and derivatives markets. This event-driven solution is the perfect choice for high-frequency and low-latency trading.
Horizon Algo Trader is designed to offer maximum flexibility and availability at all levels. Algorithms run indifferently in client or server mode. Scripts can be developed, tested and run locally or deployed on a server for improved performance and shared access.
Selected data from internal and external sources can be combined into custom streams through an intuitive graphical interface. Custom streams are business-oriented feeds that contain only the information needed by the algorithms.
Complex Event Processing (CEP)
The CEP engine analyzes custom streams in real-time. When a user-defined pattern is detected, the CEP engine triggers specific actions such as alerts, macros or trading agents.
Trading agents can be programmed to perform any trading operation and react autonomously to market events. This allows an accurate reproduction and execution of proprietary trading models.
Horizon Algo Trader is designed from the ground up to offer maximum flexibility while keeping the scripting process easy and fluid. Scripting in Horizon Algo Trader is based on Scala, a concise, elegant object-oriented and functionnal programming language. Scala is fully interoperable with Java™ and runs on the JVM, providing multi-OS support for seamless integration and easy deployment.
