Direct Market Access

Rithmic LLC (“Rithmic”)

Rithmic LLC (“Rithmic”) develops high-performance trade execution software and low latency direct market access to some of the world’s largest futures exchanges.  You can connect your platforms to Rithmic’s API or we can help you connect your own equipment directly to the exchange to achieve low latency execution.

ITG Futures utilizes Rithmic’s technology to assist you with the following:

  • A fully managed, high-performance trade execution and technology platform
  • A set of standards-based APIs
  • A comprehensive order management system ("OMS"); and
  • A robust order execution system ("OES") with direct market access to the world’s premier securities and derivatives exchanges.
  • Access to non-throttled, real-time market data and historical one-minute bars for embedding analytics within your own platform.

How do you call unparalleled low latency execution of sub-500-millisecond order submission? FAST!

System developers, professional day traders and screen designers interested in futures trading execution can choose to incorporate standards-based REST and C# APIs as well as Rithmic's C++ and .NET R | API™, into their proprietary software or systems.

Traders who integrate these Application Programming Interfaces (“APIs”) are then able to take advantage of what is believed by many to be the industry’s fastest and most reliable market data and order routing infrastructure, providing access to the futures markets.

What is the R | API?

R | API is a collection of C++ and/or .NET software libraries and interface definitions distributed under license to our professional customers.  R | API provides un-throttled real-time market data, historical tick data, historical one-minute bars, as well as order execution and order management capabilities.  For execution-only capabilities, a Financial Information eXchange (“FIX”) 4.2 compliant interface is also available.
