Marketcetera releases free open source trading software
Marketcetera, provider of open source software for automated trading systems, have released version 1.0.0 of their Automated Trading Platform (ATP) under the GPL 2 license. ATP 1.0.0 is available to download now from the Marketcetra website. Prospective users are required to register.
Key new features in ATP 1.0.0 include –
- Complex event processing capabilities with Esper implemented as the CEP engine, simplifying calculations like "moving average" and enriching market data triggers to include higher level events such as "S&P 500 up 50"
- Improved strategy API with support for Java and Ruby and new and easy APIs for orders, market data, positions, execution reports and more
- Enhanced performance and scalability with headless deployment to reduce overhead and improve latency and memory usage
- Simplified integration with existing IT infrastructure with new modular framework for real-time data feeds and snap-in analytics, support for server side agents and Photon GUI as well as web services interfaces as part of new client APIs
- Improved support for multiple simultaneous broker connections with broker notifications and availability through Photon
- Enhanced UI with new configurable desktop notifications, dynamic trade suggestions and more
Marketcetera say their platform lets brokers and traders build effective automated trading systems, develop proprietary algorithms, create order management solutions and manage risk faster, easier and at much lower cost than with closed platforms. To date, they claim 10,000 software downloads and more than 20 production deployments.
