Instrument Pricing and Order Management with Trading Technologies X_TRADER

Trading Toolbox supports the Trading Technologies X_TRADER API. If you have an X_TRADER license, you can use the toolbox to:

  • Access event-based real-time tradable instrument data
  • Track changes in Level II market information
  • Submit orders and track execution by the order server

Integrating Streaming Market Data

The toolbox lets you define event notifiers and callback functions to handle streaming updates of financial instrument data, such as the last traded price and quantity, from within MATLAB. Doing so enables the development and testing of trading strategies and algorithms that react to market changes in real time. You can analyze market microstructure information such as Level II order book data to enhance execution algorithms.
