Trade performance analytics are:
Fill rate: Order tracking state is used to monitor the success or failure of orders through the fill-rate calculation – the percentage of the request volume that was filled.
Tick to order: Calculates the algorithm response latency – the time from receipt of the triggering tick to the transmission of the order.
Order to tick: Calculates the venue response latency – the time from transmission of an order to receipt of tick update on the venue feed reflecting the trade.
Order response: Calculates the venue order response latency – the time from transmission of an order to receipt of acknowledgment of the order from the venue.
Gap detection: Track the sequence numbers of all multicast market data feeds, and use this tracking to report and alert on any gaps.
Relative latency: Calculates the relative latency between two measured events with time-stamps from a common time reference.
Brand width protection: Calculates an estimate of the amount of bandwidth need to meet a quality of service objective for a given traffic load e.g. a market data feed.
