Software provider Orc has launched its derivatives market making solution in Hong Kong, Sydney and Tokyo, providing a server-based trading engine for advanced quoting and hedging.
Orc Market Maker helps firms manage low-latency quoting strategies across multiple markets from a single interface. Its volatility and risk management tools let users manipulate their pricing based on Orc’s own models. The solution also features pricing and volatility APIs, letting customers integrate their proprietary pricing models.
“In today’s highly volatile Asian markets, sophisticated technology is critical for market makers to capture market opportunities and to maximise profits,” said Jesper Alfredsson, vice president of product management at Orc. “The newly launched Orc Market Maker answers the key challenges faced by today’s market makers, and gives firms an edge in terms of the speed, market reach and intelligence required for optimum performance.”
Orc Market Maker provides automated hedging, liquidity-sensitive pricing, delta-based quote volumes and strike prioritisation to help facilitate more intelligent quoting.
