QuantHouse has today announced that it has launched Historical Data on-Demand designed to speed up the research, development and back-testing phase of any trading strategy.
Market participants must identify data sources, align formats and code to those data sources, allocate storage capacity to download the necessary files and ultimately incorporate into their trading models to assess the viability of their trading strategy. By this time the market has often moved on and the backtesting cycle needs to be repeated. The new service from QuantHouse is the first of its kind to speed up this process. It delivers fast, reliable historical data – on-demand – for use in any client model and allows clients to implement new trading ideas within days rather than weeks or even months.
Stephane Leroy, Chief Revenue Officer and business co-Founder, QuantHouse, said:
The trading landscape has changed significantly in the past few years; it is no longer about how fast your trades are sent, but how quickly your trading strategy can be ready. In order to move away from speed trading to smart trading, you need access to trusted, reliable and consistent data on-demand, so that you can spot changes and emerging patterns in the market quickly and evaluate and adjust your trading strategy accordingly. Our new Historical Data on-Demand service gives clients a distinctive edge by moving to a much more real-time environment. This provides a real breakthrough for the algo trading industry.
Denery Fenouil, Chief Technical Officer, QuantHouse, added:
The length of the research, development and backtesting cycle often pushes the actual execution of the trade beyond optimal timings. By giving your research and development teams the right tools like Historical Data on-Demand, they will be able to rapidly test new and current trading strategies in order to detect potential losses or degradation of the strategy within days, not weeks. This then enables clients to quickly adjust their trading strategies, in order to make the changes needed before it hits your P&L.
