Rithmic
Rithmic Data: Trade Better, Trade Faster - Low Latency Trading

The trading platform you use must be able to withstand large volumes of market data with the lowest possible latency. Having access to the right data – quickly, constantly and consistently – is the key to trading successfully! Rithmic provides traders access to the ultimate routing and connectivity solution for the fastest and most reliable market data and order routing solution.

Is slow execution ruining your method?

Rithmic’s tade execution software delivers to you the low latency and high throughput performance used by large trading houses and boutique hedge funds. Level the playing field and place your trades via high paced dedicated servers co-located on the CME exchange - Tick-to-Trade in less than 250µs with Rithmic – That’s a Quarter of a Millisecond!

Do you trade on short term intervals and seek to get a few points or ticks?

Most data feeds are unable to keep up with market volatility and are only able to provide the “average prices” or "aggregate data", often referred to as “filtering”. Rithmic's streaming real-time quotes provides fast, unfiltered data to your trading platform and order routing to and from the exchange, giving you a true tick-by-tick view of the market - Clear and Instantaneous picture of price activity!

Do you often see your price get hit again and again but your order does not get filled?

Trading execution is based on first in, first out; the faster you are in the more likely your orders will get filled ahead of others in the queue. Execution must occur in the shortest time span possible (low latency) to minimize slippage. Success in trading requires that you react faster than everyone else to changing conditions in the market. Stay ahead of the curve – Platforms connected via Rithmic are able to withstand large volumes of market data with low latency!

For example, client programs built on R | API (as depicted by the green box in the lower right-hand part of the diagram) connect to the infrastructure from inside the firewall (above the red rectangle), avoiding any of its latency.

Whether you are a professional screen trader, Hedge Fund or a Commodity Trading Advisor trading on behalf of multiple customer accounts, a system trader executing automated trading models, or an investor just beginning to experience electronic markets, we believe you will enjoy faster and more efficient execution by utilizing Rithmic’s data feed.

We hope that this technology combined with our customer service will yield a long term relationship that will benefit all our clients. We never underestimate the difficulties of trading, the challenge of finding a profitable methodology and the discipline required by traders to trade the futures markets. Therefore, we value our customers by providing them with what we believe to be the leading technology.

While many market data products provide a snapshot of real-time data - or use protocols that are less likely to delivery every tick, IQFeed provides a TRUE, tick-by-tick data feed. IQFeed feed is completely unfiltered, allowing you to see EVERY TRADE the exchange sends in real-time. Because many symbols trade dozens of times per second, you could be missing more than 50% of the actual trades with your current service! Non Executable Feed

DTN iQFeed

While ITG Futures provides multiple data feeds for execution, many traders supplement it with the DTN IQFeed, a real-time, streaming quote and news service with data direct from the exchanges.

As a Tier One Data Vendor, iQFeed is one of the very few data providers that still receives the full feed (every tick) direct from the exchange. Many other data feeds will bundle or consolidate their data while some only send out data on a refresh cycle.  This means that their customers aren’t receiving the same true tick by-tick-data that iQFeed provides.  Without true tick-by-tick data, charts and technical analysis programs aren’t as accurate, and could give false buy-sell signals that end up costing you money in bad trades.

IQFeed also owns and manages their own datacenter without relying on third parties or co-location facilities. By controlling fully redundant systems, they are able to react before an outage occurs. Many 3rd party quote vendors don't have the infrastructure and bandwidth to handle today's high volume market. iQFeed’s Quad Redundant ticker plant was built with today's technology, providing traders with fast and reliable data.

Third Party Platforms

DTN also seamlessly integrates to multiple 3rd party platforms. Many traders use one platform for analysis, one for execution, and maybe even another for specialized data processing. A large number of customers also use the IQFeed API to write their own algo's and trade routines directly to the feed.

The following platforms are optimized to take advantage of the data IQFeed:

  • Agena Trader
  • Bookmap
  • Investor/RT
  • Jigsaw daytradr
  • MarketDelta Cloud
  • MarketDelta Desktop
  • MultiCharts
  • Multicharts.NET
  • Sierra Chart

Benefits of DTN iQFeed

  • Several years of minute history: Data going back as far as 2005 and building every day. Not only does this include continuous contracts, but they also have back adjusted/normalized continuous contracts.
  • True tick by tick data (no filtering, no aggregated ticks, etc): You see every quote and every trade from the exchange. This is critical if you want to accurately look at volume analysis, bid/ask analysis or trade rates.
  • 180 calendar days of tick data: It’s a lot of data, but when you need to backfill ticks, iQFeed not only provide the trades, but the bid and ask at the time of trade also. This is fantastic for traders doing buy/sell pressure analysis.
  • Over 700+ market breadth indicators such as TICK, TRIN, ADVANCE/DECLINE, PCRATIO, Equity Only PCRATIO, and many more. This includes options scans, index scans, etc. They key here is that they update every 1 second. You can’t get this data with broker feeds, and other commercial vendors only update this data between every 5 seconds and 1 minutes.
  • Four free live market newswires, including the Premium version of Benzinga News (a $39/month value).  Other popular newswires are also available to add.
