High Frequency Traders - HFT

Many, if not all, trading strategies that are trying to capture short term alpha are extremely sensitive to slippage. By slippage we mean the difference between the price you see in your market data and the price you achieve when your order reaches the market place.

Rapid Addition's FIX engines, have been built on a framework designed to minimize latency and hence reduce slippage. With single digit latency from user space to wire, Rapid Addition’s Cheetah FIX engine can often improve the profitability of a strategy implemented using slower technologies such as QuickFIX/J or the other commercially available FIX engines.
