FIA Expo Undertones: BTS Spark is What the Market Needs

Blue Trading Systems is back in the office after a busy week at FIA Expo in Chicago. We met with a lot of traders that are challenged by their current futures platform. We heard that traders want lower latencies, more control over their server hardware and better support from their vendor partners. BTS Spark answers all those concerns elegantly.

BTS Edge, our flagship options trading platform featured at past FIA Expos, was built with a focus on engineering excellence, speed, reliability and flexibility. Once we saw the need in the futures space, we brought the same philosophy to building BTS Spark.

We introduced BTS Spark at this year’s Expo (you may have seen the kick plates at the 8th Street entrance or visited us at booth 1013) because we believe this is what the market needs right now.

We have invested heavily in R&D to establish our niche delivering the lowest latencies commercially available. You can read the Quantitative results on speed in our white paper here. Also, we will be sharing more information on latency in BTS Spark in the coming months.

Your algos can be linked through BTS Spark API, and we’ve partnered with Celoxica for more deterministic latencies with less jitter. Reasonably priced for $1000 a month, the accelerated FPGA version upgrade costs an additional $1000 per month.
