Wolverine Execution Services, the agency brokerage affiliate of the large market maker, launched two new algorithms: WEX VWAP and WEX Basket VWAP.

Wolverine Execution Services, the agency brokerage affiliate of the large market maker, launched two new algorithms: WEX VWAP and WEX Basket VWAP.

Both algorithms utilize a logic that seeks to minimize market impact and price slippage. WEX VWAP and Basket VWAP timeframes can be set to as short as five minutes or as long as the entire trading day. They do not require other user-defined parameters and settings, eliminating the need for time-consuming user configurations and inputs.

The VWAP algo works orders using Wolverine’s ‘Best X’ proprietary execution logic to spread trades along a historical volume distribution within a specified time period.

The Basket VWAP algo is designed to work with long/short equity or market neutral baskets. It manages executions for basket or index components using Best X logic and historical volume distributions. When executing long/short baskets this approach strives to keep the basket neutral throughout the execution, the company said in a statement.

“The addition of these new algorithms is in direct response to client requests to marry the proprietary logic of Best X with a VWAP strategy,” said Kevin Kernan, WEX director of product development. “The superior performance our clients have seen from WEX Best X when compared to other arrival price algorithms was a key driver in creating these new algorithms for clients that use a VWAP strategy.”

The algorithms are available via the WEX electronic trading platform or any other FIX-compliant execution or order management system platforms.

Liquidnet and Capital Group complete first post-trade via FIX Protocol


Liquidnet and Capital Group complete first post-trade via FIX Protocol


Liquidnet and Capital Group extend FIX into confirmation and allocation

New York – Liquidnet and Capital Group have become the first broker and asset manager combination to successfully complete the post-trade lifecycle by utilizing the FIX Protocol.

FIX Protocol has been considered a reliable, open and independent industry standard for years, with many asset managers and brokers adopting the technology for front office messaging pertaining to executions and orders. More recently, some asset managers have also chosen to use FIX to communicate their allocations to their executing brokers. The extension of FIX into confirmation and affirmation by Liquidnet and Capital Group marks the first use of FIX for the complete post-trade life-cycle.

“At Liquidnet we are constantly searching for new ways to partner with our Members and provide them with value-added solutions to their everyday needs,” said Paul McSherry, Head of US Trading Operations at Liquidnet. “By employing FIX Protocol, we now have a reliable and highly customizable tool that enables us to further cater to the buy-side community’s evolving needs of minimizing cost, diversifying risk and processing trades seamlessly.”

“When we first took on this project, we were looking for an alternative to our current post-trade process. Leveraging our existing front office FIX infrastructure for confirmations seemed an efficient and cost effective solution” said Darrin Vallone, Vice President of Operations at Capital Group. “We put together a great team to work on this project and what they were able to accomplish in such a short time is impressive.”

“FIX Protocol provides buy and sell-side firms with a standardized approach for more effective management of risk issues, enhanced transparency, reduced costs and greater efficiencies for equities post-trade processing,” said Courtney McGuinn, FIX Protocol Operations Director. “We’re thrilled to see early adopters expanding their use of this technology to increase efficiency in the post trade environment.”

Independent Software Vendors


Who is an ISV (Independent software vendor)?
An Independent Software Vendor (ISV) is a business term for companies specialized in making or selling software products catering to specific business segments. Specialized products generally offer higher productivity to organizations than more generalized software. In essence, the more applications that run on a platform, the more value it offers to customers. DGCX encourages and lends support to ISVs through a special Empanelment process to develop front end application for trading on DGCX platform.

How to become an ISV
In order to provide better flexibility to members, DGCX will allow ISVs to write their code based on exchange provided FIX API (Financial Information eXchange Application Processing Interface).

The Exchange empanels Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) for providing “Private Order, Risk Management & Trading Software” (PORTS) to Members of the Exchange.
ISVs desirous of being empanelled with the Exchange shall be evaluated on the basis of various criteria including background, infrastructure, systems etc.

Procedures for empanelment
The ISV shall make an application to the Exchange for empanelment in the prescribed format and execute an undertaking prescribed by the Exchange.
– Application Form
– Criteria for Empanelment
– Guidelines for submission and format of undertaking.

Subject to the ISV meeting requirements of the Exchange and on receipt of the duly completed application form, undertaking along with the fees, the FIX protocol Version 4.2 based Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) will be provided to ISV. ISVs will be required to upgrade the product/software as and when the Exchange migrates to a higher version of FIX protocol.
