28 October 2013, London & New York: NanoSpeed, the provider of ultra-fast FPGA solutions to the trading community, has today announced the launch of Nano-TG, an ultra-low latency trading gateway. NanoSpeed provides the lowest latency, highly-robust FPGA-based trading, market data and risk management solutions to investment banks, prop traders and hedge funds, as well as exchanges and other financial institutions.

    Nano-TG is easily customisable by NanoSpeed, for example by incorporating client-specific risk checks and changes to protocols. It offers a host of features, including:

    • Hyper-fast risk management, with numerous pre-trade checks such as price limits, stale orders, average daily volumes, duplicate orders, etc.
    • Support for the most widely-used protocols, including NASDAQ OUCH 4.x, FIX 4.x and 5.x and others.
    • Support for multiple asset classes.
    • Multiple client connections and market data streams – up to 32 market data streams per physical connection.
    • 20 million messages per second throughput on binary orders.
    • Sub-half microsecond wire-to-wire latency.
    • APIs for a range of functions, including order display, stop trading and back-office feeds for client- and venue-side orders.
    • Nanosecond time-stamping of all messages.

    Sanjay Shah, CTO of NanoSpeed, says: “FPGA solutions are now an established and competitive component of the trading lifecycle. The ability to execute trades with greater speed reliably and to handle greater volumes is crucial to gaining and maintaining a competitive edge. The need to outpace your competitors is a continuous goal for market participants. Nano-TG provides what is arguably the fastest technical trading solution.”
