The traders of yesteryear would physically shout, scramble, and signal their way into trading pits, positioning themselves as close to the center of activity as possible. These days, technology has changed a lot, but one thing remains the same—proximity pays.
Over the years, 7ticks customers have exploited the benefits of physically locating near financial exchanges, creating drastic reductions in latency between client servers and the exchange. We have built proximity POP’s (Points-of-Presence) for many leading exchanges, and whenever possible, co-locate in the same building as the exchange presence and run direct cross-connects into our network infrastructure.
Market Data and Order Routing
Client strategies often involve multiple markets. Interactive Data's 7ticks has built an ultra-low latency, carrier-grade network between proximity sites to facilitate even the most latency sensitive of these trades.
Our long-haul connections distribute exchange feeds across the fastest available telco paths between sites, frequently providing our clients a distinct latency advantage over marketplace competitors.
Proximity Co-Location Services
Clients who leverage our proximity hosting services receive co-location cabinets, power, cooling, and direct cross-connect exchange access for the ultimate in ultra-low latency trading. Interactive Data's 7ticks builds, manages, and monitors the network infrastructure and exchange connections, providing our clients the ability to concentrate on what matters most—trading!
