ARQA OMS

ARQA OMS* (order management system) performs the full cycle of clients’ order management including order entry, processing, routing, trading, reporting and client STP. The system meets the requirements of broker dealers in servicing institutional as well as retail clients. The system supports equities, fixed income, FX instruments and futures.

ARQA OMS consists of three software products: OMS Manager Module, Broker Quotation System and Algorithmic Trading Module. The core of the system is OMS Manager Module that automates interaction of its users via GUIs with adjusted settings. Broker Quotation System facilitates OTC trading. Algorithmic Trading Module allows execution of OMS-orders by way of algorithms available in the module.

Being part of a multifunctional QUIK OEMS, the system makes use of risk management functionality and connectivity available in QUIK. ARQA OMS may operate in conjunction with a QORT product — midQORT that serves for position keeping beyond a trading day, P&L calculation and reporting.
