4th Story, a provider of automated trading software to institutions, hedge funds and broker-dealers, Announced last Thursday that it has integrated MATLAB with 4S.Everglades, its automated trading strategy platform.
According to 4th Story, trading strategies, computations and/or trading signals generated by MATLAB can now be moved into real-time, low-latency production quickly and efficiently using 4S.Everglades. The integration is general purpose, which allows 4S.Everglades to manage MATLAB runtimes.
4S.Everglades includes market data and FIX connectivity, real-time monitoring of the strategy's indicators and blotters for signals, orders, transactions, positions, and P&L and execution performance and full visibility into the strategy's decision making process, the company says.
"There are many MATLAB developers working on automated trading strategies," notes Steven Smith, CEO, 4th Story. "Moving those strategies from development and testing into live production can be challenging. However, by using 4S.Everglades, they and their proprietary algorithms can remain in a MATLAB environment yet still trade in real time on a robust platform," he states.
