Low-latency market data provider ACTIV has made its real-time equity market data available on the Marketcetera trading platform. Marketcetera is a developer of open-source platforms for automated trading systems.
The jointly developed solution enables hedge funds and proprietary trading firms to access ACTIV’s data feeds and integrate them with the Marketcetera platform.
The platform includes Photon, a visual order-entry application that can be set up to receive and display ActivFeed, ACTIV’s fully-managed direct-feed global data feed solution. This provides real-time streaming exchange prices and supporting data. Other components of the Marketcetera platform include Marketcetera ORS (an order routing system), certified brokerage connectors and the ACTIV market data adapter.
“By giving our customers a seamlessly integrated real-time equity data feed on an open source trading platform, traders can worry about generating alpha not dealing with technology headaches,” said Graham Miller, CEO, Marketcetera, in a statement.
