RTS Realtime Systems Group, a leading global trading solutions provider, announced that it has added an additional third party data provider to further strengthen its offering of low latency data and news feeds for algorithmic trading clients interested in event-based trading opportunities.
RTS has integrated into RTD Tango, its algorithmic trading solution, feeds from Netherlands-based SemLab BV, which provides computer-readable news within milliseconds of an event.
SemLab is the Netherlands' leading provider of decision support solutions. SemLab's semantic news analysis solution ViewerPro automatically analyzes multiple financial news feeds relevant for clients' portfolios to determine the expected impacts of the information in the news on securities. ViewerPro supports traders' services to assess whether emerging news affects the value of a specific equity, bond or other asset class, and it provides an estimate of the magnitude and direction in which the value of a security may be affected. Traders can express their own confidential business rules according to their market insights in an intuitive way, without interference of an external knowledge engineer. This way, organizations are secure to express their own proprietary knowledge and to create their own trading knowledge-base.
Said Bram Stalknecht, Chief Executive Officer of SemLab: "We are delighted that algorithmic traders have the ability to integrate emerging news with quantitative data in their execution algorithms. This collaboration represents the ability to combine ViewerPro's semantic processing technologies with RTD Tango's high-speed execution facility."
Said Alex Lamb, Executive Board Member at RTS: "Increasingly, our clients are interested in event-based trading. Our RTD Tango Feed API enables us to seamlessly integrate these valuable third party offerings into our solution and directly into our clients' algorithmic trading strategies which they execute across more than 100 marketplaces globally."
