What we’ll cover:

Performance is crucial in trading, but the term is loosely defined and ambiguous at best. What exactly does it mean? How can performance be quantified, compared and evaluated? Typically, “performance” in trading technology is understood as the “response speed” to any given action. This white paper focuses on measurements in two fundamental areas:

  • Trading latency in automated exchange trading technology.
  • Options market making strategies.

Modern automated exchange trading technology is extremely complex and includes hundreds of different critical paths, all of which could potentially be measured. However, measurement efforts should be focused on the aspects that truly make a difference as the very action of measuring can have a negative impact on performance if your tools aren’t suited for the job.

This white paper serves as an introduction and focuses on the basic measurement metrics and concepts.
