RealTick, a leading global provider of multi-broker, multi-asset electronic trading solutions, says it has, in its latest release RealTick 10, delivered a platform which embeds trading as an integral part of the investment equation.
Through the redesign and unbundling of its platform, RealTick 10 now provides AXE: analysis, execution, and evaluation – the three critical elements which make for smarter trading decisions and which result in the opportunity for better execution and performance, the company said today, Nov. 15.
In another trading offer, ETX Capital has launched a fantasy trading game on Facebook enabling millions of users worldwide to compete against friends on the world’s financial markets.

“Trading, risk management, and market interactions have become ever more complex. Due to competitive pressures, it is imperative for traders to be able to nimbly respond to market conditions and stay in touch with their trades as they occur,” said Stuart Breslow, RealTick CEO (pictured above).
“We set out to unbundle and repackage our time-tested trading technologies to provide traders with a platform that delivers what’s required to achieve trading alpha. RealTick 10 delivers on that expectation, providing capability that translates into opportunity for improved trading performance for traders and their firms.”
Starting with the trading cycle as its basis, it is architected to simultaneously account for information, access to liquidity, complex orders and strategies, and the regulatory requirements that buy-side and sell-side traders must consider as they trade.
Traders have complete control over their trades at all times, with access to the analytics to make smarter trading decisions and the venues for better trade performance, and the ability to assess and manage risk – integrated into a single platform.
In addition, given the demands of global trading, RealTick Mobile allows traders to stay in touch wherever they are, offering a mobile companion to the RealTick trading experience usable on any smartphone device (iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, etc.).
Traders can monitor outstanding orders, position updates, and P&L in real-time, worldwide, the company says.
The capabilities are supported by advanced pre-trade risk management monitoring and controls, which are essential in light of recent regulatory rulings, the company says.
In addition to determining a risk hierarchy for market and position based management and control, traders have suitability analysis, exposure alerts, order entry permission and restrictions, and “fat finger” checks.
RealTick risk management tools and global multi-asset order routing network have been refined over the years, and are now available via FIX and RealTick API, in addition to the revamped RealTick front end, the company says.
