Orc has dramatically improved the performance of its CBOE market gateway, specifically optimized for mass quoting with Orc Market Maker and Orc Liquidator. With a "tuned" CBOE gateway and Orc Market Maker's fast and accurate market making logic, Orc's solutions for market making has reduced end-to-end latency by over 90% for Orc clients trading CBOE markets. Clients are among the fastest in the market in quoting options on the CBOE. This advanced trading logic also gives Orc's clients robust hedging logic to maximize profit.
