How Does Custom Algorithmic Trading Software Work?

Trading software solution reduces the risks and requires less effort from traders. Generally speaking, a custom program saves a lot of time, though delivers better results. To develop such application the system must be programmed in accordance with algorithmic trading strategies.

NEW YORK - Sept. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- Algorithmic trading software that automates the whole trading process is the best solution when it comes to trading. Developed accordingly, the program monitors stocks and places orders promptly, essentially, delivering effective end-results. Sometimes even milliseconds matter and could mean either gains, or expenses. Custom-built software does what a group of people working 24/7 wouldn't be able to do properly.
With a wide-scale adoption of internet and accessible development technologies, professional traders can jump in while the heat is still on. The application, employing a certain algorithmic trading strategy would require less efforts from traders to successfully place orders. Let's look deeper in how GBKSOFT handles developing this kind of software solution.

Picking a Strategy

All programs and systems do what they're told to do. In other words, developers program them to work in certain predefined scenarios to reach the desired outcomes. Algorithmic trading has been in the game for a long time and in many cases trading wouldn't unimaginable without following certain algorithms. In order for the software to work in the most efficient ways one or more strategies are implemented in the system to react on the stock changes accordingly. Here's a list of the most widely accepted strategies to pick from:
  • Trend-following strategies
  • Implementation shortfall
  • Index fund rebalancing
  • Arbitrage
  • Percentage of volume (POV)
  • Mean reversion or trading range
  • Time-weighted average price (TWAP)
  • Mathematical model-based strategies
  • Volume-weighted average price (VWAP)

Here you can find out more about each of the strategies listed above.


A pair of algorithmic trading strategies can be considered a blueprint of the future algorithmic trading software. However, there are certain technical requirements the project should meet to have a computer program that does specifically what it needs to do - placing the right orders in the right time.
Here's what is required for it to work:
  • Historical dataset for backtesting
  • Access to trading platforms
  • Access to market data feeds
  • Infrastructure to backtest strategies
  • Ready-made trading software solution / skilled team to develop it

GBKSOFT has extensive expertise in dealing with the implementation of algorithmic trading strategies in the system to delegate routine tasks to the software (because that is exactly what optimization means). With already released projects and experienced software developers we can minimize the time it takes to deliver the project, make the price optimal for you, and reduce implementation risks, since we already know what we're dealing with here.
