The cornerstone of our business are machine readable feeds for algorithmic trading and risk management.
We will release machine readable feeds for Forex (FX) traders and the US equity market soon.
Our goal is to create the first guaranteed alpha generating machine readable feed (aka money making machine) for the US equity market, the by far biggest equity market in the world with almost 19 trillion US dollars.
Our team at HAAWKS consists of quants, developers and business analysts from the high frequency, low latency trading (HFT) and complex event processing (CEP) world.
We work with the latest technology and are familiar with the competition in different trading fields and the market microstructure.
As part of our consulting services we provide latency optimization, market research, quantitative and business analysis and a cost-efficient open source CEP trading and analytics solution.
What do you get?
Why should you buy it?
There is public information about this topic, why buying it?
There is no doubt that there is still significant movement and motivation to invest in microwave networks for latency arbitrage trading in Europe (Jump Trading bought Belgian Houtem tower for € 5 millions in December 2012).
Nowadays POP latencies of commercial network providers are more and more publicly disclosed on their website. (Quincy Extreme Data Latencies) It´s interesting to see that these numbers improved significantly in less than 2 years - Aurora CME to Slough LD4 latency reduction by 1.212 milliseconds. (Quincy Data Breaks Ground in Europe with Lowest Known Latency for CME Market Data – 36.40 milliseconds)
For obvious reasons proprietary traders are very secretive about their networks and latencies - as millions if not billions of dollars are at stake. Therefore, a lot of questions still remain:
The answer is YES, there is a huge investment opportunity in microwave networks in Europe but the opportunity is narrowing by the minute.
To our knowledge one big player already bought 2 licenses and installed antennas on a very crucial route late in 2014.
This would be a reduction of 1.5 milliseconds compared to Quincy Data latency of 31.109 milliseconds.
Due to technical limitations of this route there are probably only one or two licenses for high capacity links left.
We are going to be offering a powerful research paper with the following up-to-date facts. This paper will be available on Feb, 4th and delivered to all buyers at the same time.
