Fidessa looks to algorithms in futures markets
Fidessa, which provides trading, investment and information solutions to financial services professionals, has highlighted new research into the growing use of algorithms in futures markets.
Provided by TABB Group, the resarch paper – Algos in Futures markets: Shifting into High Gear – looks at trends in futures markets, particularly the growing use of automated trading strategies.
The paper examples the range of relevant brokerage offerings in the market, and studies existing algorithms offered by futures commission merchants and independents.
It also considers the impact of regulation, particularly US regulator the CFTC’s views on automated trading, and the development and testing of algorithms.
Matt Simon, senior analyst at TABB Group and author of the report, said: “The world of futures algorithms is beginning to mature. Current users have demands to support existing practices and are looking to further build out their advanced execution strategies. At the same time, a number of large buy-side institutions, including those who have traditionally shied away from using futures algos, are showing interest.”
