Speed up your Trading

Acceleration experts realize the evolution of trading


Nanoseconds can make huge money

Financial markets in which incredible amounts of various financial assets are trading every day, are dramatically changing in accordance with the evolution of technology.

For derivative transactions such as futures and options, structured bonds, competitors are struggling to calculate the fair worth of them based on the underlying assets ahead of other competitors.

Also, a method of automatic transactions in nanoseconds at high frequencies utilizing a slight price distortion such as HFT (High Frequency Trading) also is adapting to hardware performance improvement and algorithm evolution , now it has become a considerable part of trading.

In addition, the movement called Fintech embodied by block chains and virtual currency is spreading rapidly, and the development of innovative and distributive new products and solutions using technology is accelerating.


In this way, the field of finance continues to evolve with technology, those who can adopt leading-edge technology and can achieve high speeds in nanoseconds can gain competitiveness and profit beyond their competitors.

Fixstars' solution for finance

— As an acceleration professional, we will contribute to the improvement of our customers competitiveness


Improvement of Risk and Derivatives Evaluation System

Along with the evolution of financial engineering, the calculation of risks and derivative valuations is increasingly complex every day.
In Fixstars, we realize high-speed operation by making use of mathematical analysis and statistical methods required for financial engineering, including knowledge about Databases, distributed processing, and technology to derive accelerated performance.


Further evolution of HFT

The competition of trading methods aimed at arbitrage is not limited to algorithm development, it is now required to optimize at the data path level inside the semiconductor as well as at the system level.
In order to realize speed-up in units of nanoseconds, we not only improve the algorithms themselves but also support hardware development and optimization for each semiconductor architecture.


Huge tranding data processing

With the spread of HFT and the establishment of dark pools by securities companies, the cost to finance companies and the profit levels have been greatly influenced by how to cope with the proliferation of trading data.
Fixstars offers distributed processing platforms and development environments that are easy to scale out in order to respond to the increasing trading data.
