True Direct Market Access

Exegy’s DMA Platform was built for speed to help achieve quality execution and superior fill ratios. The DMA Platform offers low-latency direct market access to major futures and options markets. Exegy does this by ensuring that all gateways are deployed in major exchange co-location data centers and all infrastructure components are designed to minimize latency. The DMA Platform’s full end-to-end stack is tuned for performance.

Access 40+ global listed derivatives and fixed income venues through a unified API that simplifies exchange connectivity and order routing. Client-facing APIs include FIX and the Binary API—a multithreaded and asynchronous API designed for speed.

The DMA Platform also offers an extensive risk management system with a central risk management API that conducts low-latency pre- and post- trade risk checks. Brokers can manage risk and order flow with tiered limit controls for other brokers, clearing firms, and trading firms. Other features include a kill switch for cancellations at the trader and firm levels as well as drop copy functionality for audit and compliance.

Exegy’s DMA Platform removes the burden of connecting and managing the infrastructure required in today’s trading environment. Market participants can focus on core business by using a write-once approach and gaining access to our DMA Platform’s hosted testbed environment before deploying into production. The DMA Platform is fully managed and supports all bug fixes, upgrades, and exchange-driven changes.
