This webinar will provide insight into Dell Processor Acceleration Technology - a free firmware download for the Dell PowerEdge R620, R720 and R720xd servers featuring the Intel E5-2690 processor - which can boost their performance by up to 30%. Market data and trading applications immediately run faster as a result, with no time consuming and potentially dangerous code changes. Dell experts will cover customer drivers that led to this offering, together with details of how it works, and how it meets your needs.

Trading firms continue to seek faster execution and lower latencies for their high frequency and algorithmic trading strategies. Beating the competition to trade in today's fragmented marketplace is crucial to avoid price slippage and to maximise alpha. But the competition isn't staying still, and constant infrastructure investment is required in order to stay ahead.

This webinar will focus on synchronizing ultra precise time (i.e. sub microsecond) across distributed (Linux) applications deployed in high frequency and algorithmic trading. The challenges are twofold:  First, how to very precisely synchronize the time between computers in a trading system. The second, is how that time can be precisely synchronized with other computers around the planet.

This webinar will focus on synchronizing ultra precise time (i.e. sub microsecond) across distributed (Linux) applications deployed in high frequency and algorithmic trading. The challenges are twofold:  First, how to very precisely synchronize the time between computers in a trading system. The second, is how that time can be precisely synchronized with other computers around the planet.

This presentation will demonstrate how to overcome these challenges, and will be supported with real data/measurements. The goal is for the audience to learn about the need for time synchronization, technology to deliver the time, the techniques to validate/verify the time accuracy and precision, and real world data supporting the claims.

Paul Skoog, Product Marketing Manager at Symmetricom, will be the presenter.

Attend this 45-minute webinar and learn about:

1. The importance of time stamping and synchronization for high frequency and algo trading.

2. Current challenges to time synchronization, and business impacts of errors.

3. What is PTP, PTP accuracy and why not all PTP synchronization systems are created equal.

4. Overcoming network and (Linux) operating system issues that impact synchronization accuracy.

5. Time measurement techniques at the trading application layer.

It is often said that financial markets firms face the challenge of 'coping' with huge volumes of extremely high frequency data.  But what if those firms can transition from coping to leveraging - for new trading and investment opportunities?

As financial markets firms face the challenge of managing huge volumes of extremely high frequency data, the opportunity exists to transition from just managing this data to strategically leveraging it for new trading and investment opportunities.

What was once the impossible is now a reality - and via this webinar, Dell, Kove, Kx Systems and Intel will demonstrate how their joint solution provides new options and opportunities for analyzing and leveraging 'Big Data' for profit in ways that were not previously possible. Participants include:

* Pete Harris, Editor, Low-Latency.com (Moderator)
* Daryan Dehghanpisheh, Global Director, Financial Services & Institutions, Intel
* Simon Garland, Chief Strategist, Kx Systems
* Mark King, Global Strategy & Business Development Director, Banking & Securities Vertical, Dell
* John Overton, CEO, Kove

Click below to watch the recorded webinar, or download the white paper–for free! In 2010, financial markets participants will continue to expand their trading activities as liquidity increasingly becomes fragmented, seeking alpha in new markets, best execution in dark pools, arbitrage opportunities across the order book and by implementing high frequency and complex, multi-leg, cross asset class strategies.

The successful operations – whether they be the proprietary desks of traditional broker/dealers, specialist high frequency and algorithmic traders, or quantitative hedge funds – will leverage a trading infrastructure that combines high performance analytical, algorithmic and order routing platforms with the lowest latency access to multiple, geographically dispersed execution venues. Multi-market trading – leveraging a fragmented market landscape – introduces new challenges, even for trading firms that have mastered the complexities of low-latency execution using approaches such as co-location and proximity hosting. Those mechanisms, while still relevant, provide a less complete solution when trading across markets that are geographically dispersed.

The webinar and white paper explain the drivers for fragmentation and multi-market trading, the evolving landscape of market access, and explores connectivity and hosting approaches to minimize latency.

Click below to watch the webinar (recorded Nov. 9, 2010), or download the slides–for free! In today’s ultra-competitive electronic trading marketplace, having lower latency than the rest is the only way to succeed. But there’s more to success than just the lowest latency system - your firm also needs the agility to move first into new asset classes, leverage new liquidity pools, react to increasing regulatory pressure, and seize trading opportunities to maximize alpha.

Watch this educational webinar to learn how you can rapidly build, deploy and maintain high performance, adaptable, resilient and scalable low latency trading infrastructure, while also minimizing deployment risk and TCO.

As part of the webinar, you’ll hear how Chi-Tech leveraged IBM’s Financial Market Frameworks - an offering including software, hardware and services - to leap ahead of its competition. Also featured is an overview of an IBM reference architecture for high performance low-latency trading systems, incorporating IBM’s WebSphere® MQ Low Latency Messaging, the IBM XIV® a file system and IBM System x® and BladeCenter® servers. Performance benchmarks of this architecture are also discussed.
