Wolverine Execution Services Enhances SWEEP-X AND SWEEP SPREAD Options Algorithms

wolverine execution – Chicago, IL  – Wolverine Execution Services (WEX), a leading provider of value added technology and execution services, has enhanced its Sweep-X and Sweep Spread options algorithms with the ability to handle hidden orders. WEX Sweep-X is designed to meet the need for immediacy in order execution by aggressively seeking liquidity for marketable orders to quickly capture displayed and hidden liquidity. WEX Sweep Spread works orders using Sweep-X’s proprietary execution logic by simultaneously accessing the various complex order books through direct exchange connectivity.

“At WEX, we are constantly improving our algorithms to meet the evolving needs of our clients,” said Troy Googins, Head of WEX Product and Business Development. “Sweep-X consistently provides industry leading fill rates, in the 99% range on marketable orders, but it’s still critical to provide efficient ways to manage the remaining portion of the order. By remaining hidden, clients can mask their intentions while the order works within the market.”

“By default, Sweep-X provides proprietary display size logic for both single leg and complex orders.  However, clients occasional do not want their orders to be displayed in the market place and would rather have the choice to have their orders remain completely hidden if they are not marketable.” Googins added.

In addition to Sweep-X, WEX also offers WEX Best-X for options, an arrival price algorithm designed to intelligently determine the best execution opportunities for an order and to seek out price improvement while maintaining high order fill rates.

WEX algorithms are currently available via the WEX Trading Platform (WTP), FIX and through other FIX-compliant EMS or OMS providers.
