Vhayu Technologies released VWAP Engine version 2.0, which enables existing client applications to access predefined trading strategies that try to achieve the volume weighted average price (VWAP) for configurable time periods.
VWAP Engine 2.0 - a module of Vhayu Velocity, a financial data processing engine - is available for global equities trading. It provides users with the Bloomberg industry-standard VWAP, and increases throughput and reduces latency, according to Los Gatos, Calif.-based Vhayu.
Customers can develop proprietary strategies from existing front-office trading systems accessing the product, using Vhayu's Velocity platform to publish calculation results to multiple trading applications across the enterprise. "Broker-dealers ... can use our VWAP engine to customize their own unique VWAP strategies at a fraction of the cost," said Vhayu CEO Jeff Hudson in a release.
