The most important factors for professional traders are the speed of execution, market depth and the quality of orders’ fill. These were the main factors we had in mind when we were building the new execution infrastructure.
Axiory’s traders now have the possibility to trade within milliseconds by the use of MetaTrader platform or FIX protocol. Our MT4 servers are hosted by the world’s biggest hosting centers such as Equinix in London (LD4) or in Tokyo (TY3). In addition, our execution core is using the co-located low latency connectivity with the liquidity providers and top tier banks.
We designed world-class infrastructure that is based around the analysis of our clients’ location. We have always had in mind the ideal set-up which could give our clients the best possible connection with our Liquidity Pool and also the lowest connection time and less slippage for every trade executed through the Axiory Execution Hub.
We have recognized four main points that are important for high quality trading experience with professional brokers. The number one priority is to have a stable core that is cross-connected with liquidity providers. Our continual development is mainly focused on increasing the market-depth and the number of datacenters and back-up systems.
Our trading servers are cross-connected with our Liquidity Pool in our execution center located in Equinix LD4 in London. Thanks to that, all of the orders that come from our servers are being filled in milliseconds.
We are connected with our Liquidity Pool located both in London and New York. This ensures the deep market depth for filling up the high volume trades and also reduces the slippage generated by averaging executed prices.
We use local datacenters in London (LD4), Tokyo (TY3), Amsterdam and more. It helps to improve the speed and the quality of orders from the local trading places. These datacenters also help to avoid the over-connection of customers to a certain trading server which could affect the stability of their orders.
On top of all that we also have the 3-level back-up system for price streams that ensures great level of stability. We have automatic control mechanisms in place for cases in which the trading servers freeze. The automatic re-booting system and the back-up server for each main server can bring peace to traders’ minds.
Our infrastructure set-up is built for ultra low-latency trading, to the full potential of what the MetaTrader technology allows. The trading servers and the execution core are located in London Equinix LD4 datacenter and cross-connected with our Liquidity Pool.
For the high frequency traders and experienced programmers we also offer the FIX protocol 4.4 where all trades are executed directly in Equinix London (LD4).
Furthermore, we do our best to be transparent in terms of execution slippage. Unfortunately it is not possible to create public statistic from MetaTrader server that we could share with you, so instead we decided to show you the data of slippage distribution we measured on our own.
Note: The slippage provided above represent the occurrence of slippage for the period from 1.5.2016 to 31.5.2016.
