Challenges Market Makers face

Today’s marketing making business leaves little room for second best in technology and infrastructure. Successful market makers must operate a predictable, reliable low-latency trading environment. Market makers must be as fast as the fastest traders on the venue they are providing liquidity on.

Best in class tools are needed to provide visibility, optimization, troubleshooting, data capture and reporting of all electronic activity related to the business of making markets. Traditionally, market makers have built their own tools in-house to maximize competitive advantage. However, that has changed in recent time.

The cost of developing and maintaining these tools is prohibitive as the business expands to more markets, more asset classes and the burden of regulatory obligation increases.

It is critical for market makers to develop highly optimized algorithms for price analysis and quoting.

Research, Back-testing & Simulation

It’s critical to use the same algorithms for research and production. Both price construction and hedging algorithms are designed, back-tested and simulated in Empirica against historical data. Once developed and refined, models are deployed into the production market making environment.

Empirica allows you also to use its own simulated matching engine to test all possible scenarios not available in paper trading or exchange staging environments.

Smart Order Routing

Individual order books from multiple crypto exchanges are aggregated into one view and our adaptive Smart Order Routing algorithms define the best execution plan and split orders for best execution at multiple venues.
