Algorithmic framework: script and integrate trading strategies

Overview

Horizon offers the ability to develop and deploy proprietary algorithmic trading strategies within the Horizon framework. Clients can run the Horizon algorithms but can also easily script or directly integrate their automation trading strategies, in line with our ‘Trade Your Way’ philosophy.

From basic operations, such as sending orders, to highly sophisticated algorithmic trading strategies, Horizon Platform for Automated Trading automates every action and leverages all the features of the global Horizon Platform: pre-trade safety nets, basket trading, advanced order management, trading automatons, volatility management, pricing, position keeping, hedging, etc.

Horizon can trade across a wide range of structured products (vanilla to exotic), underlying asset classes (from equity to hybrids, and beyond), and product types (futures, options, warrants, CBBCs, In-Line warrants, capital protected products, etc.), and for high volume for each product. A key strength of Horizon is the ability to handle everything on a single platform: from monitoring and managing positions in a single view, to real-time automated trading, with embedded algorithmic capabilities.
