Bernstein & Co. "ColorPalette positions us for continued growth, and lets us prepare for the anticipated market structure changes associated with the NYSE hybrid market and Regulation NMS. We look forward to continuing to work with Lava on additional enhancements to the ColorPalette system."
ColorPalette is a powerful sector-based trading and order management solution, designed as a high-throughput, fully automated system for managing institutional and retail customer orders. Its features include streamlined regulatory handling of current rules for all capacity orders, customer order crossing and internalization management, open architecture with standard and strategically-placed APIs, complete trade risk management, and TraderIntelligence(TM), a dynamic order-based query.
