ARQA Technologies took part in exhibitions-conferences World Exchange Congress and Exchange Technology World which were organized and conducted by Terrapinn (the UK) in Istanbul on March 21-23
The principal participants of the events were senior executives from the world's leading exchanges and trading venues as well as their partners who develop trading and settlement infrastructures and services.
At the conference’s part devoted to technologies of carrying out exchange and OTC trades and organizing an access to trading, the following key issues were discussed:
What changes do the participants need to be prepared for in the light of discussing new regulations (MIFID II)?
Is the software for conducting trading and settlement to be developed inhouse or do you need to buy solutions of well-known brands?
Should the exchanges offer the software for end investors to help brokers in improving the quality of their service?
What changes in technologies for pre-trade control of operations for the exchanges and market participants are in the making?
Is HFT good or bad?
And many others.
ARQA Technologies did not only take part in all debates, but also presented to the participants its program solutions and services at a separate stand.
The great interest of the participants was drawn to solutions for direct access to exchange trading systems using universal and exchange specific protocols. These solutions allow the users to implement online pre-trade control for orders sent to the trading systems without a noticeable slowdown of order processing speed.
