Dale, can you please elaborate on which regulations you are referring to?
Interestingly enough, there are no any regulations preventing many other US FCMs from accepting Australian and Canadian customers.


Hi Bogan,

Other U.S. based FCMs that accept customers from Canada or Australia have (or should have) branch offices located in these countries which allows them to transact business with residents of Canada or Australia.

Best regards,

If you have any questions about our services at Velocity Futures please send me a private message.

Trading Technologies lays off 100 staff

Trading Technologies International, a developer of futures trading software used across Wall Street desks and in the pits of the Chicago exchanges, is laying off a large number of staffers just weeks after the rollout of a major new product.

The privately held firm is cutting some 100 of its roughly 600 staffers, including 80 in its home office in Chicago and the rest spread out across its offices, which are in London, New York, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong.

“As we’ve become more focused and efficient over the past few years, we made a difficult but necessary decision to lay off about 100 employees,” the company said in a statement.

The cut comes amid persistently weak volumes in derivatives markets that have pressured revenues for trading technology firms, as it has for traders, banks and brokerages. CME Group said that average daily futures volumes were down 21 per cent so far this quarter versus the same period a year ago.

However, a person close to the group said that the move is an “organisational restructuring”, the result of an overexpansion just before the financial crisis. This is the first staff reduction for Trading Technologies since 2001.

“It’s been clear for the past six months or so that headcount was too high,” this person said. “This is not a reflection of trading volumes.”

The cuts will come from a variety of roles, but primarily engineers and IT support staff.

Despite the poor volumes, Trading Technologies has continued to unveil new trading tools. In March, it launched a new version of its core platform, X_TRADER. This included the Algo Design Lab, known as ADL, which allows traders to visually assemble automated trading engines and quickly launch them.

The company also recently named Rick Lane, the developer of ADL, as its chief technology officer. Mr Lane had left the group after it acquired the maker of ADL, to work at Google, but rejoined Trading Technologies last month.

Traders increasingly rely on automated decision engines known as algorithms, or “algos”, to rapidly trade futures or pair trades of related assets.

In addition to software, Trading Technologies also offers “co-location” services to put traders’ systems close to exchange hubs to increase their speed.

Though common to equities and the subject of scrutiny by some regulators such as the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, algos are seeing growing use in other asset classes. ITG and Bank of America Merrill Lynch rolled out new electronic futures trading tools for their institutional clients last year.

Hello,

i want to design my new eurex setup and need to know a pingable IP address from one of the TT Eurex Gateway servers in frankfurt/germany. I want to place my server as close as possible. Till yet i couldn't find anything.

Is there a known ip or could someone look into netstat? Any known dedicated server hoster in frankfurt with low latency connection to TT gateway?

Regards,
Koepisch

TT doesn’t expose any publicly pingable ip addresses.

But, if you have access to the TT api, it will Ping servers on connection and I believe log the value.

Depending on your budget, TT offers hosting, which would be the lowest latency. Beeks financial Cloud is another service provider that has servers in Frankfurt and pretty decent pricing.

If you are asking about "XTrader" or "XTAPI" this is a valid question. If you are asking about "New TT" it's really mote. While the software front end is cloud based (AWS in the US I believe) all the order execution engines are all colocated. So having a faster/better connection to the 'front end' won't improve your automated trading.

I always used PingPlotter to monitor my connection to my servers in the XTrader world. Was disappointed when I discovered that "New TT" doesn't allow this. Thankfully (with the help of PingPlotter Support) I was able to find away around this.

Been rumors that they were on the Block but this is the talk of Chicago today. I wonder how many customers they would lose though if the Vampire Squid did buy them.

Yeah, I was surprised it was GS but I imagine trading frontend/software providers aren't exactly a hot market.

Probably big banks and funds will look for alternates since they don’t want their proprietary trades/data tracked but what happens to prop/retail who cannot afford alternatives. For autospreader/automation it is still the cheapest solution unless you want to build your own connecting to a different API
