StreamBase Systems, a leading provider of Complex Event Processing (CEP) technology, today announced a new partnership with Gain Capital, a global provider of online foreign exchange services, to offer a complete solution for their mutual clients to quickly deploy FX high-frequency trading algorithms.
The deal combines StreamBase's award-winning CEP platform and with direct adapter to GAIN GTX, GAIN Capital's new ECN trading venue. StreamBase's adapter allows clients looking to build high-frequency FX trading algorithms rapid connectivity to the GTX marketplace. GAIN will also use the StreamBase CEP platform to improve market-making, risk-management and surveillance capabilities of its core retail business line.
"We are always looking for new technologies to improve our customers' experience as well as our internal operational efficiencies," said Andrew Haines, CIO of GAIN Capital.

"As a customer of StreamBase, we are also proving out the value of their technology internally. Leveraging their development environment, we are delivering business solutions in a fraction of the time it would have taken with traditional programming languages."
GAIN Capital selected StreamBase after evaluating numerous CEP providers and off-the-shelf products. GAIN needed a high performance CEP platform powerful enough to integrate with their retail execution systems that process nearly $200 billion in trades per month with its clients and trading partners, 24 x 5, across the globe, and scalable enough for future global service expansion. StreamBase's easy-to-use visual development environment enables business and IT users to rapidly build, test, debug and deploy real-time FX trading applications.
"We are pleased to see global firms like GAIN recognize the usability, reliability and scalability of the StreamBase CEP platform," said Mark Palmer, CEO of StreamBase. "GAIN's selection of StreamBase demonstrates that our strategic vision of offering a fully customizable and comprehensive CEP platform that can address the unique challenges of the FX markets is now a reality."
