Tbricks today announced that the Chicago-based trading firm Maize Capital has selected Tbricks for making markets on the CME. Maize will use Tbricks for market making and point-and-click trading.
"The customizability in Tbricks is impressive" says Michael Sklut, Maize Capital. "Not only can we make the system behave and appear just the way we want it to, but we can also try out new ideas very quickly because of Tbricks' app-based architecture and development tools."
"Maize Capital has created a completely customized high-performance trading platform in a very short time" says Jonas Hansbo, CEO Tbricks. "While Tbricks does offer sophisticated out-of-the-box trading apps, the platform's full potential is unlocked by those who take advantage of the extensive possibilities to customize it to fulfil their own specific requirements."
In the challenging business of making markets in options, traders need a fast, scalable and functionality-rich platform for optimum performance. Tbricks' market making fuses server-based auto-quoting and auto-hedging with fully configurable visualization in the front end, enabling users to make markets with high performance and control.
Tbricks' apps include customizable pricing, volatility management, risk management, team quoting and a whole series of trading features including hidden quotes (electronic eye or take out machines), peg quotes, multi-level quoting, quote spreading, portfolio graphs, portfolio stress testing and RFQs.
