Miletus Strategy Engines™ range from the most advanced basket algorithms to traditional single stock strategies. Miletus’ advanced execution logic works with real-time analytics and a wide array of liquidity sources, enabling the algorithms to rapidly react to changing market conditions and quickly take advantage of opportunities.
