QB Offers Algo Trading and Trade Simulator Apps on Bloomberg Terminal

Subscribe to our newsletter

Quantitative Brokers (QB), a provider of algorithms and data-driven analytics for futures and US cash treasury markets, has introduced two apps for traders using the Bloomberg Terminal.

The new solutions are available through the Bloomberg App Portal. The first is an enhanced version of QB’s algorithmic trading app, which enables futures and fixed income investors to respond dynamically to market indicators for best execution. QB says the algorithms can also be used with its proprietary trade cost analysis (TCA) solution to give traders covering complex industries (futures and cash treasuries) performance measurement analytics, similar to what is available in equities trading, through the Bloomberg Terminal service.

QB’s second release is SIMQB, a simulator tool that enables traders to run test simulations on futures and on-the-run cash treasury orders before submitting an order to QB. The tool also helps users measure and benchmark trade performance and measure cost on any order that uses QB’s execution algorithms.

Ralf Roth, CEO at QB, says: “Bloomberg Terminal subscribers now have access to our sophisticated trading tools with which they can simulate trades through a Bloomberg monitor and then submit orders to QB without interrupting workflow.”

The Bloomberg App Portal gives Bloomberg Terminal users access to a range of third-party and broker software tools for news and social sentiment analysis, technical charting analysis and data visualisation. New apps are selected for the Portal if they add to Bloomberg’s existing feature set and information resources.
