API to wire measured in microseconds to nanoseconds depending on use-case

Control Trading Risks

Perform risk checks and track order status while managing portfolio state

Execute Trades More Reliably

Persistence engine enables intraday order state recovery

Orders generated by local (in-server) trading applications may be received by the Order Execution Gateway (OEG) using our highly optimized execution API.

This market access solution not only forms and submits each order to the chosen trading venue for direct market access (DMA), but also performs order and portfolio management, real-time order tracking, pre-trade risk checks, and system monitoring.

The results? A more complete execution solution at lower development costs with vastly improved trade execution. Redline’s Execution Gateway has been used by top tier hedge funds, proprietary trading firms, and global investment banks to trade hundreds of billions of dollars daily since 2012.

Customers have utilized Redline’s Order Execution Gateway to power their direct market access trading needs including use cases such as algo trading, high frequency trading, smart order routing, and market making.

Powerful, Modular Architecture for Buy-Side & Sell-Side Use Cases

Directed flow may be sent straight to the chosen destination gateway for order formation and delivery. Destinations can be a direct market access trading venue, liquidity provider, or a broker DMA platform.

  • Orders may be sent to your smart order router, where InRush™ market data ensures that routing decisions are based upon the most accurate pricing.

  • Incoming orders may be sent to a brokerage application — receiving client orders, delivering them to the OEG for processing, and sending order updates back to clients.

  • Orders may even be sent to another OEG server in a remote colocation center to be executed at a trading venue in that co-lo for lower connectivity costs and faster execution.
