Exegy Delivers Iceberg Order Insights to Symphony Users

New Signum Bot presents insights from iceberg detection signal

St. Louis – March 9, 2023 – Exegy Inc. announced an integration with Symphony Communication Services to deliver insights from Exegy’s iceberg order detection signal to users of the Symphony financial markets infrastructure and technology platform.

Subscribers can receive updates from Exegy’s automated Signum Bot, which is designed to report unusual activity by institutional investors.

Signum Bot is powered by Signum Liquidity Lamp, which identifies trades that are part of larger iceberg (reserve) orders on all securities traded on US exchanges. Iceberg orders are a hidden order type used by informed investors to minimize the impact of large orders on a stock’s price.

Instead of waiting days or weeks for SEC filings detailing the movements of large investors and company key personnel, customers can get Signum Liquidity Lamp delivered as a real-time signal or end-of-day summary file (CSV).

Based on this dataset, Signum Bot sends select, timely alerts to subscribers on the Symphony platform. Each message identifies unusual iceberg order activity, which gives insight into potential movement in the stock.

Andy Lee, Exegy’s Director of Quantitative Research, said the bot is an easy-to-use source of institutional sentiment.

“These data points are rich sources of alpha opportunities and Signum Bot pushes them out to Symphony users automatically,” Lee said.

Exegy plans to supplement Signum Bot with other messaging bots on the Symphony platform, also based on the Liquidity Lamp signal.
