midQORT allows for online calculation, monitoring and control of positions for all trade and non-trade operations with financial instruments of a company or bank and their clients.
The trade data is delivered from front-office systems (mostly QUIK). The trade data may also be delivered directly from QUIK OMS. Trades may be entered manually. They may also be backdated. Trades referring to future dates are not processed or included in statements and performance results until the date of trade becomes operational. When a past period trade is entered, the position is recalculated automatically for every successive date.
