Algorithmic Trading


A third of all EU and US stock trades in 2006 were driven by automatic programs or algorithms, according to Boston based consulting group from Aite Group LLC.By 2010,that figure will reach 50 percent according to Aite.

In 2006 the London Stock Exchange,over 40% of all orders were entered by Algo Traders, with 60% predicted for 2007.

Current stock market has reached to the stage where the human intervention is completely erased by the algorithmic trading. 70% of trades in US are program driven trades and in Europe it is approx. 40%. In India, one third of the exchange trades are done through algorithmic trading in both the segments.

Treasury Management


The continued economic instability and a tsunami of banking regulation over recent years has brought much change and challenge to the financial services industry. Against the backdrop of constantly changing local and regional regulations (which are not always harmonised), and ever growing political attention, the pace and scale of these developments has arguably changed the foundation of modern banking institutions.

It can be argued that change initiated by the financial crisis has brought to the forefront previously forgotten divisions within financial institutions. None more so than Treasury.

Algorithmic trading in India

Algo trading started in India in 2005. But it was only in 2008, after the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) allowed Direct Market Access, or electronic interaction with the order books of exchanges, that this facility started gaining wide acceptance.

Today, around 16 to 17 per cent of trading on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange is algorithmic, with about 80 to 90 companies engaged in it.

The Indian market is very big for Algorithmic Trading. Taking figures from the World Federation of Stock Exchanges , the Indian market, in dollar value, may still be relatively modest – it’s the 10th largest. However, when you look at the number of trades, India’s the 3rd largest market, only beaten by the US and China.

By pursuing EPAT from Quantinsti, lot of opportunities would open in Algorithmic and Quantitative trading industry.
