QuantHouse, the independent global company of end-to-end high performance market data and trading API based technologies, today announced that Horizon Software, the provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has joined the qh API Ecosystem to benefit from global reach and end-to-end performance.
This collaboration results in a unique offering, which will enable buy-side and sell-side firms to benefit from high-capacity and ultra-low latency trading systems to complement or replace existing legacy trading infrastructures. Horizon provides sophisticated tools for creating, testing and implementing automated algorithmic strategies within incredibly short timescales; the proprietary fibre optic network from QuantHouse offers a proximity hosting infrastructure and unique end-to-end, ultra-low latency market data feed via QuantFEED.
Users can benefit from the Horizon Replayer to replay an entire day of QuantHouse historical market data for a broad range of asset classes and instruments, including stocks, futures, options, bonds, indexes and ETFs. For the first time this enables traders to test and fine-tune their algo strategies using real data.
The new solution is available via QuantHouse’s API Ecosystem, a global initiative connecting multiple API providers with the aim of fostering greater innovation and cross-selling opportunities between ecosystem participants. This is achieved by helping providers turn their software and hardware product portfolios into global, available on-demand solutions through open APIs, removing the burden of the traditional per customer implementation model.
Sylvain Thieullent, CEO, Horizon Software, said:
The performance of the Horizon Platform is closely linked to the quality of the trading infrastructures our clients are using. We want to be able to offer easy access to our trading technology combined with performance and global reach. This is the reason we are so pleased to have our solutions available on the qh API Ecosystem. I am confident that our clients will be quick to benefit from this collaboration.
Stephane Leroy, Business Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer, QuantHouse, added:
At QuantHouse we understand the need for rapid adoption by clients of advanced API based trading solutions. We are delighted to welcome Horizon onto the qh API Ecosystem as it will help clients improve their trading performance while optimising their investments.
