LiquidPoint Addresses Low Latency Routing and Execution

ConvergEx's LiquidPoint has rolled out a set of customized technologies to meet the specific low latency routing and execution needs of futures and listed options traders, according to today's news.

This new suite is designed for traders who require differing speeds and capacities for their trading styles, ranging from high frequency to traditional needs. With this new offering, customers can choose from a variety of new technologies to best suit their performance and budgetary requirements.

"We have always been an early leader in supporting customers who are discriminating traders -- those who have technology needs that are extraordinary and those who appreciate economies of scale but still demand the highest quality," said Jordan Naylor, managing director at ConvergEx's LiquidPoint. "For those who are interested in cost savings, our standard package represents a feature-full choice. The more discriminating users will choose our premium or ultimate packages which provide the lowest latencies and highest capacities in the industry."

These services are integrated with LiquidPoint's Ultra Low Latency Options Network (ONYX), which was previously known as AORS v 2. ONYX offers users low-latency round trip times and high capacity routing to the exchanges as well as risk controls that include MassCancel, CancelOnDisconnect redundancy, colocation and, if desired, dedicated hardware. In addition to listed options order routing, ONYX also supports equity, VIX futures and options and multi-leg orders. BLAZE, LiquidPoint's recently announced next-generation front-end, also utilizes the ONYX network.

The ONYX and BLAZE offerings have contemplated all of the elements of the futures and options trading arena and can be custom fitted to suit the full range of technological needs of all options professionals, from high-frequency to more traditional traders, according to the release.

"LiquidPoint remains committed to delivering timely and reliable quotes and powerful routing technologies," comments John Hester, managing director and senior director of Software and Systems Architecture at ConvergEx's LiquidPoint, in the same release. "As a technology company, we are dedicated to providing infrastructure in a customized fashion, meeting both the needs and price-point of each of our customers."
