FlexTrade Leverages OneTick to Add Enhanced Analytics to Flagship EMS Platform

Offers Seamless Integration of OneTick’s Capabilities with FlexTRADER’s Strategy Servers, Advanced Analytics and Signal Generation

New York, NY  – April 15, 2013 – OneMarketData, a leader in tick data management and analytics, today announced that FlexTrade Systems, a global leader in broker-neutral, multi-asset execution and order management systems,  offers integration  with OneTick, a single solution for complex event processing (CEP) and tick data that spans both historical and real-time, to enhance FlexTRADER, its execution management system (EMS). By incorporating OneTick’s analytics capabilities into its flagship EMS, FlexTrade users will benefit from a single platform that gives them critical market insight to optimize execution management and strategies across multiple asset classes.

OneTick’s CEP capabilities enable FlexTrade users to generate trade signals and develop strategies based on real-time and historical data. FlexTRADER will also tap OneTick’s extensive historical database to store tick data as well as trade data for real-time and post trade analysis across asset classes, including equities, foreign exchange and listed derivatives.

“FlexTrade is committed to continuously evolving our platform to meet the growing needs of our clients,” said Vijay Kedia, President & CEO, FlexTrade. “OneTick empowers FlexTrades’s clients with powerful, proven analytics to efficiently and effectively create, test and implement quantitative strategies from one central platform.”

“Financial firms today are under increased pressure to develop and execute sophisticated quantitative trading strategies that can quickly discover untapped alpha in these volatile market conditions,” said Richard Chmiel, senior vice president at OneMarketData. “OneTick’s unique ability to draw on both real-time and historical data will give FlexTRADER users the advanced analytics they need to generate the superior trade alerts and signals they need to keep them ahead of the competition.”

OneTicks’ intuitive, performance-driven design provides quants, analysts and traders with greater freedom to analyze as opposed to process data, leading to increased performance and ultimately profits. Built specifically for the financial services industry by Wall Street veterans, OneTick is the only CEP product in the market that solves two problems with one platform by functioning as an integrated combined CEP and tick database.

FlexTRADER is a multi-asset execution management system for trading individual securities or portfolios in equities, FX, equity options, futures as well as fixed income. It provides out-of-the-box cross asset trading strategies which can be customized, global access to broker algorithms, as well as the ability to build proprietary algorithms. The platform also provides organically developed pre-trade, real-time and post-trade analytics (FlexTQM), predictive analytics (FlexEdge); risk and cost optimized portfolio trade scheduling (FlexPTS); advanced integrations with major OMSs; integrated real-time allocations and cash management; smart order routing; a fully integrated high performance Complex Event Processing (CEP) engine; commission management; complete transaction and IOI quality management, and a dynamic strategy matrix. In addition to equities, FlexTRADER facilitates foreign exchange trading via the award winning FlexFX, while equity options and futures trading are administered by FlexOPT, Derivix and FlexFutures, respectively. For fixed income trading, the system is certified to trade US treasuries as a member of the BGC Partners Preferred Vendor Program.
