Orc Software pushes the boundaries of automatic trading with the new version of Orc Liquidator

With Orc Liquidator 5.1, a faster, more customizable and easy to use application for creation of trading strategies and automatic trading on over 100 markets is introduced.

"The new strategy monitor gives a great overview of all the different trading logic you have running" , says Jonas Hansbo, Head of Algorithmic Trading at Orc Software. "Our competitors will be trying to copy Liquidator’s more than 100 new features and innovations for years to come."

Orc Liquidator is a high-performance server-based trading platform that allows you to, with an extremely high level of performance and flexibility, automatically trade and make markets on over 100 electronic marketplaces supported by the Orc System.

Orc Liquidator provides the ability to quickly design new trading strategies in order to capture short-lived market opportunities – across products and across markets. This capability drastically shortens the time from trading idea to full scale execution and allows for quick adaptation to changing market conditions. Compared with competing solutions, Orc Liquidator does not have the common limitation of only providing a fixed set of strategies.

New features

With the introduction of Orc Liquidator 5.1, handling of multi-instrument trading algorithms has never been more powerful, and now allows for modification directly from the user interface using the new Strategy Monitor. The Order Monitor gives you a powerful overview and is a synthesis between automated trading and manual user intervention of the active strategies, allowing the seasoned trader to be completely in control.

Orc Liquidator 5.1 has also been enhanced with an all new interface for creating custom data columns - allowing you to define any type of information needed for your strategies, orders and trades.

Performance is a key feature for any automated trading system. For Orc Liquidator 5.1, the speed of running the strategies, getting the orders into the market and reacting on market events has been significantly increased. A new tool, the Profiler, provides run time analysis of your trading strategies, which makes it easy to identify and remove any bottlenecks for maximum performance.

Orc Liquidator 5.1 is available now and will be rolled out to customers during the second and third quarter of this year.
