Optimize Your Autospreader® Experience with ADL®

TT’s Autospreader has long been a favorite tool among the proprietary trading and order desk communities. Automating hedge leg execution opens the door for superior hedge price execution and adds to the bottom line. The paradox we see now is why use a client-a front-end that can never compete with the execution speed and efficiency of server-side logic-for the quote-side execution? When striving for optional spread execution, why not automate the entire process? This is where the TT platform’s ADL DIY algo design tool comes in to improve your performance.

We’ve asked two representatives from TT’s automated trading team, Andrew Renalds and Russell Tromans, to share their thoughts on how ADL can be used to optimize your spread trading experiences. Their feedback centered on two key areas. Through the use of ADL logic, traders may attain even greater execution speed and efficiency. Let’s take a look at how ADL will improve your overall performance when executing Autospreader logic.

Execution Speed

Execution Risk

Set It and Forget It

Added Structure

How many markets do you watch with your strategy? Are you watching stocks, bonds, energies, metals, FX, crypto and/or a myriad of other indicators? Ever hear of paralysis by analysis? Algos don’t suffer from that. With ADL, you can factor in numerous contracts as part of your trading strategy. You may take execution a step further to aggregate multiple Autospreader configurations and dictate the optimal route for execution.

Spread Execution Management

Are you a portfolio manager who is always rolling positions? Ever get to thinking that these frequent rolls are costing you a lot of money? Use ADL to handle multiple Autospreader configurations and roll positions more cost effectively by using the liquidity of back months.

ADL is also capable of bringing in data from outside sources to use in your calculations. Need live FX or equity prices in your Autospreader analysis? With ADL, these outside sources can be considered.

The addition of ADL to Autsospreader logic brings in an additional layer with which to differentiate your spread logic. The flexibility of Autospreader is already a great differentiator, but the addition of DIY algo logic created in ADL further expands upon the world of opportunity to make your spread logic superior to what is running in the market. Looking for more examples of what can be done with the combination of ADL and Autospreader?
