FlexTrade Implements Machine Learning for Real-Time Market Impact Analytics
The solution delivers actionable insights, unique to FlexTrade, to help traders adjust their execution strategies
London, UK, May 11, 2022 – FlexTrade Systems, a global leader in multi-asset execution and order management systems, today announced the launch of machine-learning driven real-time market impact analytics, which are now available within FlexTRADER EMS.
This analytics enhancement comes as the industry calls for solutions providers to increase innovation and deliver actionable analytics to help improve decision-making and reduce market impact on the buy-side trading desk. FlexTrade’s in-house data science team has driven the new initiative and refined it further through input and collaboration with clients.
FlexTrade’s market impact analytics are generated by applying a proprietary neural network model to a large corpus of order data to help investment managers understand the performance of their execution strategies. The solution allows traders to see an estimate of their current and realized market impact in real-time, meaning strategies can be monitored and adjusted automatically based on market conditions. Traders using the solution can also leverage data visualization to understand how the market impact has changed over the life of the order, including any increases or decreases as more volume is traded or when an order is finished or paused. Further, the new offering, deeply integrated directly within the FlexTRADER EMS order blotter, can be viewed holistically alongside third-party analytics to deliver increased transparency, improved trading decision-making and assist with best execution obligations.
FlexTrade’s real-time machine-learning driven market impact analytics are available immediately for deployment, with the first client, an EMEA based Tier 1 buy-side asset manager, live in production. FlexTrade will showcase the new analytics offering this month at ‘ ‘WBR’s TradeTech Europe in Paris on the 11th and 12th of May.
