NEW YORK, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvergEx Group, a leading provider of global brokerage and trading-related services, today announced that its LiquidPoint options technology business has expanded its offering of multi-leg solutions to include the NXP DARK™ algorithm. With the market for complex order types expected to grow more than 20% in 2014*, LiquidPoint continues to enhance its capabilities to address the unique demands that this growing trend places upon its clients: efficient price discovery on spreads and finding liquidity in fragmented markets.
Using DARK, clients can act without potential market impact. Clients with multi-leg trading strategies can access LiquidPoint's NXP dark pool with their originating order only going to market if a match is found within NXP. If liquidity is not found, the order immediately returns to the client as canceled. NXP, an SEC-registered alternative trading system for U.S. listed options, sources liquidity by aggregating LiquidPoint's extensive order flow and network of liquidity providers, leveraging the firm's long history of providing price improvement opportunities within a secure and anonymous venue.
"Since May 2013, our spread algorithm volume has nearly tripled," said Anthony J. Saliba, CEO of LiquidPoint. "Customers are using complex orders more frequently to achieve their investment goals, and DARK's multi-leg order capability delivers a powerful new dimension for their trades."
DARK joins LiquidPoint's suite of multi-leg algorithms that have seen broad adoption by options traders since their launch last year, including Complex Order Book Sweep, Reserve, Hidden and Pulse. Additionally, LiquidPoint's Execution Quality Dashboard provides clients with daily transparent reporting for both single- and multi-leg orders.
ConvergEx's LiquidPoint offers flexible, customizable and comprehensive solutions, specifically designed to meet the diverse needs of the options trading community.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
