New in 2012


Gen 3 DMA
ITS upgraded to our 3rd Generation DMA Convert Engine in late 2011 and it is currently in production trial on a limited basis with very positive feedback. Gen 3 has decreased the DMA processing latency by more than 50%. This upgrade will be applied to ALL of our DMA Convert Engines through Q1/Q2 of 2012.


Risk Management—Fat Finger and Limit Check
ITS has embedded the first phase of its patent pending riskmanagement algorithm into its DMA and SOR Engines providing “fatfinger checking” of orders based on a broker’s pre-defined risk parameters. This feature is in final testing with a beta customer and should be available by the end of April, 2012.


Additional Marketplaces
In 2011, ITS added routing capability to both TMX Select and SIGMA X Canada. Customers can now route to 11 Canadian marketplaces using the ITS SOR.
