An Architecture For Intelligent Trading – Leveraging Big Data in Motion for Increased Profits

Trading firms are moving on from an obsessive focus on latency reduction to a ‘new normal’ of applying intelligence to high performance trading, to ensure that they are executing the best – most profitable and least risky – trades, and not simply the fastest ones. It’s called Intelligent Trading.

The Intelligent Trading approach calls for the real-time processing of numerous and vast streams of data and the application of algorithms. This approach – leveraging Big Data in Motion with predictive analytics and business rules – requires a technology infrastructure that combines intelligence with performance, scalability and resilience.

This industry briefing explores the recent change in focus of trading styles, the concepts of Big Data in Motion, presents some examples of Intelligent Trading, and describes a technology architecture to implement it.
