GAIN Capital has deployed StreamBase LiveView for liquidity optimization and back-office risk monitoring. The StreamBase LiveView Analytics Server enables GAIN Capital to access a single real-time view of market liquidity and quickly deploy analytics to help GAIN ensure efficient and optimal liquidity provision.
StreamBase LiveView is a real-time analytics platform that processes both live and historical data, continually pushing live updates from the StreamBase LiveView Analytics Server to the StreamBase LiveView Desktop. Using StreamBase LiveView, users at GAIN interact with streaming and historical data via the StreamBase LiveView Desktop, where raw data and the results of analysis are presented in custom visualizations such as graphs and tree maps. The goal of the LiveView system is to help GAIN optimize available liquidity for customers.
Live notifications and alerts are also a key part of the LiveView platform for GAIN, enabling back-office users to manage liquidity and risk more efficiently, and provide real-time reporting.
“The FX markets are highly fragmented and fast-moving – LiveView provides us an up-to-the-millisecond analytics platform that’s truly unique in the industry,” said Rob Perez, VP of Trading and Risk Management Systems at GAIN Capital. “With GAIN’s global client base from over 140 countries trading around the clock, StreamBase LiveView helps us oversee our trading ecosystem, and provide live intelligence that helps better serve our customers’ needs.”
“The development of the StreamBase LiveView platform is driven by clients’ needs to analyze, anticipate and act on data in motion, rather than at rest,” said Mark Palmer, CEO of StreamBase. “LiveView helps firms increase visibility, efficiency and control over their infrastructure so that they are able to provide their clients with integrated liquidity and timely solutions.”
GAIN Capital, a global provider of online foreign exchange services, has partnered with StreamBase to offer a complete solution for their mutual clients to quickly deploy FX high-frequency trading algorithms.
The deal combines StreamBase’s award-winning CEP platform and with direct adapter to GAIN GTX, GAIN Capital’s new ECN trading venue. StreamBase’s adapter allows clients looking to build high-frequency FX trading algorithms rapid connectivity to the GTX marketplace. GAIN will also use the StreamBase CEP platform to improve market-making, risk-management and surveillance capabilities of its core retail business line.
“We are always looking for new technologies to improve our customers’ experience as well as our internal operational efficiencies,” said Andrew Haines, CIO of GAIN Capital. “With StreamBase, we have a mutually beneficial partnership where the combined offering delivers a powerful solution on which our customers can develop and execute trading strategies with minimal effort.”
“As a customer of StreamBase, we are also proving out the value of their technology internally. Leveraging their development environment, we are delivering business solutions in a fraction of the time it would have taken with traditional programming languages.”
GAIN Capital selected StreamBase after evaluating numerous CEP providers and off-the-shelf products. GAIN needed a high performance CEP platform powerful enough to integrate with their retail execution systems that process nearly $200 billion in trades per month with its clients and trading partners, 24 x 5, across the globe, and scalable enough for future global service expansion. StreamBase’s easy-to-use visual development environment enables business and IT users to rapidly build, test, debug and deploy real-time FX trading applications.
