Connection Scheme for FX Market
Connection Scheme for shares
The module is connected to trading venues (sources of liquidity) both through the FIX protocol or interfaces available on the QUIK server.
The Module Processes the Following Classes of InstrumentsShares – a class with shares traded on connected trading venues.
Bonds – a class which combines liquidity of sources the bonds are traded in.
Compound FX pairs — a set of instruments consisting of FX pairs from the simple class of SOR instruments. Thus, an FX pair USD/EUR can be set with USD/RUB and EUR/RUB pairs. In this case, quotes are calculated on the basis of SOR instruments USD/RUB and EUR/RUB.
Request for Quotation in Simple SOR Class
- After initialization, the module requests quotes for all instruments of the class and forms aggregated quotes. During the module‘s operation all quotes are kept up to date.
- When the user submits an order for a given volume, the module calculates buy and sell quotes for the instrument at the weighted average or worst execution price for the volume of the order. The request for an amount can also be formed with regard to required sources of quotes and the currency of the instrument’s price.
Request for Quotation in Compound SOR Class
- The client can forward limit or market orders for the quotes received.
- After the client submits an order, the module forwards corresponding orders to the trading venues. Distribution of the total order volume is based on the proportions used for quotes calculation and on prioritized liquidity sources.
Resending of limit orders to platforms
Variants of Application
- The module can be used both for own trading and client servicing.
- The module can only use the means of access to external trading venues available on the QUIK server.
- To build a more sophisticated technological infrastructure, other products by ARQA Technologies can be used, for example, QUIK Matching Engine, Module of electronic execution of sales QUIK EES and FIX program interfaces. Thus, the QUIK SOR module is used for access of the broker’s clients to FX instruments within FX Dealing.
