“We’re already connected to main cryptocurrency exchanges and offering full scope of Principal Trading strategies on crypto cash & futures through Market Making and Algo Trading.”

Horizon Software has expanded its crypto trading platform by adding Binance to the list of its cryptocurrency gateways, allowing clients to trade spot and futures on cryptocurrencies.

The provider of automated trading solutions and algorithmic technology has adapted its trading platforms to the world of crypto, which takes place 24/7 with quantity precision at 10-9.

Its algo framework and Principal Trading features allow users to implement long and short strategies, as well as arbitrage strategies to seize opportunities without being constantly glued to their computer or phone.

Horizon has thus added Binance to its growing list of crypto gateways, which includes the likes of Coinbase, Kraken, Bitstamp, and Bittrex.

Vincent Dumontoy, Global Head of Product Management at Horizon Software, said: “Cryptocurrency market capitalization reached close to $3 trillion USD at its peak in November 2021. We believe cryptocurrencies are here to stay as market participants use them to diversify their portfolios and to perform transactions on-chain.

“As a cross-asset trading platform, cryptocurrencies are an integral part of Horizon’s strategy. We’re already connected to main cryptocurrency exchanges and offering full scope of Principal Trading strategies on crypto cash & futures through Market Making and Algo Trading.

“In 2022, we’ll extend our Principal Trading scope to options on Deribit and our Agency Trading modules will also handle 10-9 quantity precision to be able to execute crypto client orders. As our full trading platform & workflows become crypto-compliant, we believe Horizon is uniquely positioned on crypto markets”.

In November 2021, Horizon Software expanded its Electronic Trading platform to include market making and agency trading functions.

Offered in one single platform powered by Horizon’s algo framework, the firm’s Market Making and Algo Trading services leverage its expertise in latency, scalability and expertise in algo and execution strategies to banks and brokers.

The market making and agency trading solution features advanced functionalities in high touch, DMA, DSA and global order routing for equity and global derivatives.

This will enable banks and institutional and retail brokers to meet the trading challenges of today and tomorrow.

Horizon stated that clients using their Market Making solution are now expanding towards client order flow and execution through one single platform, optimizing their running cost and implementing cross businesses logic such as Internalization or Central Risk Book.

Horizon’s Managed Services and Hosting is a complementary service that turns the solution into a one-stop shop and takes ownership of upgrades, monitoring, configuration, and full users support.
