TT Awarded “Best Trading and Execution Technology” at the Inaugural CTA Intelligence Service Awards

Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT), a global provider of high-performance professional trading software, received the award for “Best Trading and Execution Technology” at the inaugural CTA Intelligence Services Awards in New York last Thursday.

The CTA Intelligence Services Awards recognize and reward companies that have provided outstanding support and services to the North American managed futures industry over the past 12 months. An independent panel of judges assessed the entrants in the areas of financial performance and revenue growth, new product development, client feedback and continued innovation. TT was recognized as having the best trading software and execution solutions, including its X_TRADER® order-entry software and MultiBroker ASP solution.

"As a user of TT's platform, I'm not surprised that they won this award. I've used and traded on other platforms, but TT's functionality sets them apart,” said Jim Mulroy of BEAM LLC.

Matt Smith, CTA Intelligence Head of Content, commented on TT’s selection, "CTA technology requirements go far beyond the front end. It was clear to the judges that TT differentiates from their peers in a variety of ways, most recently and notably with their MultiBroker solution and visual programing platform, ADL®. We congratulate them on their well-deserved ‘Best Trading and Execution Technology’ award."

Tom Haldes, TT’s Group Product Manager, Buy-side Technology, offered, “CTAs represent an important, growing part of our global user community, and we will continue to work closely with them in developing the next generation of trading and execution tools. With that, we thank the CTA Intelligence Awards judges for their close examination of the TT ecosystem and appreciate this honor.”

In January, TT achieved a milestone with its University Program, with its X_TRADER software now installed at more than 50 universities across the globe, encompassing schools in 10 countries throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. TT is in the process of developing new trading solutions for derivatives and fixed income professionals and market connections to NASDAQ OMX eSpeed, London Stock Exchange Derivatives Market and IDEM.

Next week at the 39th Annual International Futures Industry Association Conference, TT will make an important announcement about how it is creating and delivering its next-generation technology to the market.
