  • Financial Market Orders Generation and Execution System

    At OneMarketData I led a small team in building financial market orders generation and execution system. We named it Orders Management (OM) system.

    OM is a distributed system written on C++, which can automatically handle all the steps and issues that appear in automated algo trading, including automated signal generation based on a given trading algorithm, responses handling and fault tolerance issues.

    The system supports FIX and AMQP protocols to communicate with third-party exchanges and brokers.
