Is your data correct? How do you know?

You have the fastest, highest bandwidth feed from your exchanges and data vendors; but how do you know whether the prices are correct?

  • How do you know whether a specific market or instrument on your feed has stopped updating while you continue get other data?
  • Can you tell when a micro-burst has resulted in delayed or missing ticks?

The panel will discuss the vendors that provide solutions in this segment and market data metrics that can be used to assess the quality of data being employed in trading decisions.

Blockchain for Dummies

Blockchain is the new buzz.  But it's actually just one implementation of "crypto-ledger" technology.  The objective here is to take the mystique out of cyrpto-ledger and to give everybody a basic understanding.  The presenter will also show the community has cyrpto-ledger systems are successfully penetrating into other verticals (and why).  How are they successful at  expanding their presence?  How will they evolve?

Terminals on the decline, feeds on the rise

There are fewer human beings consuming market data on a day-to-day basis. Feeds delivering market data to computers running algos and robo-advisors is definitely the way forward.

  • Do feeds need to transform from their current state to use more innovative APIs or technologies, like torrents and blockchain's security mechanisms which are more effective with aggregation and "finger printing" data?
  • Is it time to re-visit multi-vendor data aggregation/distribution platforms that use new technologies?
  • How can your business benefit by this transformation?
  • Do information policies have to change to embrace this technological transformation?
