AWACS-Exchange Surveillance System

Ensure effective surveillance of capital markets 

Exchanges and regulators constantly strive to meet one of today’s most difficult challenges – that of effective supervision of the dynamic capital markets. Any transaction or behavior, be it buying, selling or instigating in a manner to willfully produce an abnormal effect on prices, goes against the very fundamental objective of the exchange of ensuring a fair marketplace.

As markets become vulnerable to manipulation and price distortions, no exchange can exist without a surveillance mechanism. There is an urgent need to constantly monitor and control manipulation, price distortion and other market abuses.

Robust monitoring, warning mechanism

AWACS – Advanced Warning And Control System – handles all the critical elements of the surveillance process and provides a robust monitoring and warning mechanism. It is designed to protect the integrity of capital markets from fraud, manipulation and abusive practices and to foster open, competitive, and financially sound markets. Its astounding set of features and functions ensure strict market vigilance and quick access to historical information, which is essential to the user in decision-making.

AWACS is geared to address the needs of the regulator / exchange / monitoring entity with its capacity to analyse multi-exchange and multi-segment information. Relative assessment of market activity is made possible by real-time comparison of exchanges and / or segments.

Warning signals or alerts are the core of AWACS. Alerts can be configured to trigger in real-time or offline, i.e., during the trading hours or end-of-day. The user may create his / her own alert conditions with the Visual Event Response Builder (VERB). Mullti-dimensional Analysis, Post Order and Post Trade Analysis, Circular Trading Detection, Time Slice Analysis, are some of the highlights of the AWACS capabilities. The Critical Reports Indicating Manipulation in Prices (CRIMPS) when coupled with Alerts, provide strong indications of manipulation.

AWACS is equipped with powerful graphics that enhance transparency and visibility of details. The Market Replay is one such feature, which helps to revisit any day’s trade activity sequentially ‘tick by tick’, with capability to ‘freeze’ moments in time, forward or reverse data streams, or even enable / disable specific transaction streams. The Case Manager meets the needs of Investigation and Evidence Management together with Case Reporting. The Query Builder facilitates the creation of custom reports which can be exported to standard formats.

AWACS supports English, Arabic, Chinese and Dutch languages.
