Join BTS at the Roundtable on Low-latency Trading Wednesday May 17th at 2:10pm

Latency remains a key concern in options trading. In today's increasingly competitive markets the penalty for slowness is steep: traders whose systems are not designed from the ground up with low latency in mind soon find themselves being picked off by faster competitors.

Join Blue Trading Systems’ Pedro Pinto and Kevin Darby this Wednesday at The Trading Show 2017, where we will be hosting a roundtable on the importance of latency in high performance options trading.

If you can’t make it to the roundtable but would like to receive a copy of our report, send us a note at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Join BTS at the Roundtable on Low-latency Trading Wednesday May 17th at 2:10pm

Join Blue Trading Systems’ Pedro Pinto and Kevin Darby at The Trading Show next week, where we will be hosting a roundtable on the importance of latency in high-performance options trading.

The increasingly competitive options market demands systems built from the ground up with low latency in mind. Traders need faster tick to trade latencies to avoid getting picked off by competitors.

We will discuss our benchmark methodology, including the hardware and software used, and how the BTS Edge system was configured to provide numbers consistent with real world scenarios. We will cover what and how we measured, and share what we learned in our pursuit of low-latency.

BTS's Ultra Low Latency Quoter

Blue Trading Systems is proud of the work we are doing to provide the lowest latency platform available. This week we take a look at the performance of our newest CME Quoting Engine.

Our Numbers

In order to obtain meaningful predictors of real-world performance we setup an instance of our Quoter as we expect it to be used in production: we used commodity hardware and production market data and configured the Quoter to maintain quotes on high delta options on the CME ES Future.

Using a high-performance logging facility our Quoter recorded arrival times for the ES future and departure times for the corresponding mass quote update messages. These two data points were captured during a 20 minute window.

From the resulting data we were able to extract a distribution of about 100 tick to quote times. To understand how the number of configured quotes affects the Quoter performance we repeated the experiment for different quote quantities, starting at 20 quotes and ending at 1280.
