The full suite of ConvergEx services are now available through the Fidessa trading platform, Fidessa LatentZero EMS Workstation, Minerva OEMS or via Fidessa's global FIX connectivity network, which provides access to 310 brokers, 1800 buy-sides and 100 venues worldwide.
ConvergEx's algorithms are available immediately in North America, Europe, and Asia and include: VWAP, TWAP, POV, Initiation Price, IQx, Scaling, and Closing Price, as well as TactEx, which is ConvergEx's suite of advanced DMA order types. Each algorithm is designed to help users track market sensitivity, monitor marketplace changes and nuances, and dynamically optimise performance and minimise market impact.
In addition, Fidessa users can now access ConvergEx CrossSM, which is ConvergEx's block crossing system that brings together unique institutional, agency-only order flow to provide anonymous execution at the mid-point with natural buy-side contraparties and zero market impact.
