How to Use RCM-X Algo Strategies on CQG

As we’ve discussed in our whitepaper – “Execution: the Cost You Can Manage” 80% of CTAs and traders out there are using algos to execute their trades. Which means if you’re in that 20% executing trades manually, you’re likely at a disadvantage. Enter the world of execution algorithms and TCA (transaction cost analysis) platforms allowing investment managers to avoid bringing the proverbial knife to a gun fight.

CQG, one of the industry’s leading platforms for traders of all shapes and sizes, has wisely seen the Algo writing on the wall and recently launched the ability to use different execution algos right there within the CQG platform, in addition to a built in TCA tool.

RCM’s new technology unit RCM-X has been launched to provide trading technology and risk management services to the professional trading and investment management space (that’s you CTAs, CPOs, hedge funds, and prop firms). To learn about RCM-X’s algo strategies and how to access algos and TCA on CQG’s Platforms, register for our upcoming Webinar with CQG on March 20th at 3:00 P.M. CST..
