Capital markets are rapidly expanding with state-of-the-art technologies, not just to solve challenges but also accelerate innovation. Trading platforms have become powerful tools for brokers and traders in the current dynamic marketplace. As millennials make up an increasingly large percentage of the investor market, online trading remains hot and accounts for a higher share of industry revenue. In an industry where every second in an e-trade transaction can cost a trader thousands of dollars, latency during operations can never be excused. While hardware and network inherently exhibit a certain amount of latency, it is the job of the developer to ensure that the platform is not the source of undue delay.
To add more to the efficiency of the traders and brokers, developers are also working on mobile-based fast, high-resolution e-trading software. Such software powered by the cloud technology has been paramount in the advancement of time series database integration and the introduction of parallel streaming, providing users with a holistic view of diverse activities anywhere, anytime. These solutions also incorporate highly sophisticated security features fitting for a financial service. Having pioneered machine-to-machine communications technology, the industry is taking also tapping into the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance its offerings.
Driving these mobility and IoT efforts, data also plays a critical role in modern trading platforms. Investors and traders rely on big data tools to gather and process a huge amount of information for effective and intelligent market prediction. To make these tools much more useful and efficient, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities are being incorporated into the trading platforms.
