If you are trading electronically, then you know microseconds matter. ACTIV's market data system is the lowest latency, end to end solution, available on the street. We understand writing and maintaining feed handlers with raw exchange data is time consuming and removes you from your core business. To address this need we've forged global direct feeds with the following attributes:
Low Latency - Industry leading latencies without compromise. The ActivFeed DCS delivers microsecond latencies on over 5 million+ messages/second, including order books.
Normalized API Interface - Normalized market data streams, so that your applications can consistently point to the same API across exchanges. As exchanges change their specs, let ACTIV do all the work for you as your strategy executes at markets around the world.
Record & Update Filtering - Powerful APIs, so only the instruments you are trading need to be pulled into your application, freeing up CPU cycles to speed your trading application. ACTIV's APIs can also filter on message type, so you can just get the data you need.
Exchange Co-Location - Co-Location at major exchange facilities around the world, or implement your own ACTIV system right in your datacenter or cage.
Hosting - Hosting services for your applications directly in ACTIV's cage, or a cross-connect away.
Cost Savings - Where your feed requirements may not justify your own direct exchange feeds, the Hosted ActivFeedDirect service allows your firm to leverage ACTIV's investment in exchange feeds and co-location facilities.
