At the heart of the trading and exchange sector, ALTEN has collaborated in the establishment of an FX Option market order processing system (financial product type) of a major investment bank enabling the automated trading of these products on the market. Before its introduction, trading was done by phone.
This order processing system already exists on the equity markets, but its application to the FX markets (Forex), more difficult to value, required the complete overhaul of the full application.
In a digital system of this type, the main technical constraint is (critical) performance, and waiting time, the reduction of which constitutes the company’s added value.
The projects realised are varied: development of the system while satisfying performance indicators, performance analysis (profiling), management of the automatic memory and optimisation of processing time are critical issues for trading rooms, all of which ALTEN consultants took into consideration through their thoroughness, technical expertise and in-depth knowledge of the Financial sector.
