trading platforms

T8 Software Consulting enables traders and investors to access the global financial markets through a wide range of (prime) brokers, such as Interactive Brokers and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The system provides state-of-the-art pricing models for derivatives trading, combined with portfolio management and risk management functionality, offering the user an optimal tool to simultaneously trade, manage portfolios and monitor risk.


Improving the system together with the traders

As a trader, you often come across new opportunities and ideas to execute your trading strategies better and faster. Generally, this means an adjustment or addition to the software. It is crucial to implement such a technical update quickly so the trader can test it. At the same time, current software in production must keep running in a stable unchanged state. By using Microservices combined with a solid architectural DNA and optimized develop-deploy workflow, those experiments, new releases and patches can be performed all together.

The technical solution to trade in all time zones

Solve the time zone gap when Volatility explodes

With its excellent pricing models and multiple market access, T8 Software Consulting’s software is particularly suited for global volatility arbitrage trading. When market events happen, discrepancies in volatilities provide trading opportunities in global markets. While speed is a core focus in our software development, we strongly believe that other factors such as span-of-control and overview are at least as important as low latency for profitable volatility trading.

Proprietary, Volatility and Retail trading

As our developers have decades of software development expertise for professional market makers, we designed our trading screen setup similar to professional traders. This includes an easy overview of the current market situation, with various color settings to alert users to changes in the market. All the screens can be configured to suit the specific trader's needs to get easy working screens for quick order entries.

The design of the screen provides the trader with a snapshot of implied volatilities, theoretical values and order books. This snapshot can contain any series and strikes of both index and single stock options. All the columns can be changed according to your own personal setup to create the perfect personalized view of your trading screen.

With its excellent pricing models and multiple market access, the software is used by our clients for global volatility arbitrage trading. The differences between realized and implied volatilities are generating opportunities in the global markets. Although speed is a core rule in our software development, we strongly believe that there are several factors besides low latency that impact profitable trading.

T8 Software Consulting is used by retail investors. The ease of order entry, portfolio overview and risk analyses make it ideal for retail investors. The "one account solution” and the “one point access” to the major global equity and derivatives markets make the software very useful for private investors.

Scale and expand in seconds

speed-up
Scale

Microservices make your trading business scalable. Instantly.

Scale Item 1

Expand massively and quickly

By using various different small services and by combining those services in various ways, we have created a flexible and scalable system adjusted to the actual needs of users. These combined services can be expanded quickly without losing any performance on the total delivery of the services.

With Microservices, the trading system simply multiplies the active instances adjusted to the demand, for example in case of huge volatility or other trading situations where high performance is needed. Whether the explosive capacity is needed for a few seconds or for several days, the system keeps working perfectly.

Scale Item 2

Multiple instances for different tasks

Besides the explosive capacity, Microservices can execute various tasks without losing performance. If there is a demand for many different or complex tasks, those tasks will be distributed over several instances. Those instances work simultaneously and expand again when the load gets higher.

In this way, the complexity of tasks is handled by the trading software to deliver those tasks quickly and accurately. On top of complexity, the system can also scale quickly on capacity.

You can use all the features and modules while maintaining smooth performance.

Scale Item 3

Shorten the software update cycle and test ideas faster

Microservices combined with an optimized development workflow enables IT to handle and deploy multiple ‘new experiments’ quickly without influencing the production environment.

The number of ‘experiments’ can be endless and the iteration from idea to deployment can be performed faster. The Microservice used for the ‘experiment’ can stay active as long as needed.

Releasing software updates more often also reduces the need to apply patches (bug fixes).

The system improves at high speed and keeps up with the traders’ need to ensure the competitive advantages that result in maximizing profits for their clients.
