New trading platform software add-on from Edge Financial Technologies increases profits for
Hedge Fund traders.
Chicago, IL 20-May 3, 2011 – Edge Financial Technologies, a developer of custom trading
software solutions for professional traders, today announced the release of a groundbreaking custom equities trading solution. Developed for a Hedge Fund trading firm, the
new software speeds order entry by combining the data feed and order routing capabilities
of RealTick® and Sterling Trader®.
The software permits traders to simultaneously view their combined positions, P&L, and
open orders without having to switch between monitoring RealTick® and Sterling Trader®
data individually. The software also handles trading in multiple accounts by intelligently
routing orders to multiple destinations.
“Speeding up order entry and having a combined view of positions is a critical aspect of
every trading firm. That’s why we are so proud to provide a solution that adds immense
value to the hedge fund client of MasterTrader,” said Jitesh Thakkar, CEO of Edge Financial
Technologies. “In the real-time trading business, every nanosecond counts and the timesavings gained from our customized solution have already resulted in greatly increased
profits for our client,” Mr. Thakkar added.
Known for providing custom software solutions to the capital markets industry, this newest
solution is the latest in a long line of custom applications developed for the firm’s clients. In
all, the company has developed and certified over a dozen custom software solutions
including a reusable platform called FastStart™ that permits developing and testing trading
applications in days instead of weeks or months.
Although Edge Financial Technologies’ target market includes firms of all sizes, the company
has a “soft spot” for smaller companies and startups. Their expertise extends to creating
automated and algorithmic trading strategies, back testing, custom risk management
solutions and portfolio optimization solutions. The firm is particularly adept at projects
involving market data Integration, pre- and post-trading custom risk management, custom
low latency feed handlers, order routing applications, end-to-end trading system
optimization as well as FIX Protocol consulting and integration.
The company is particularly noted for providing consulting on projects utilizing Realtick,
Sterling, Ninjatrader, Interactive brokers, QuickFIX and other popular platforms. Edge
Financial Technologies is also a certified partner with Trading Technologies (TT), CQG, and
