Execution and research broker ITG announced the rollout of the ITG Flex Algorithm, which it says enables buy-side traders to customize their strategies and source liquidity more effectively.
As market conditions change, ITG says its flex algorithm can employ the strategies of multiple ITG algorithms while working a single order. In addition, the firm says its latest algo offers simple workflow automation, order management with benchmark price sensitivity, and settings for flexible participation and opportunistic liquidity capture.
"ITG Flex Algorithm offers the simplicity of a single dynamic algorithm combined with powerful customization options," said Jeff Bacidore, ITG's head of algorithmic trading. He added that the algo is an essential tool for buy-side traders who are looking to use an "adaptive, strategic approach to sourcing liquidity."
