Risk Management

Control your trading risk effectively

smartTrade’s LFX clients can control their risk by managing their positions and capturing profitable trades. You can configure hedging rules or use our out-of-the-box auto-hedging of client trades to manage positions and skew, or check, their net open positions. You can use our fully integrated margin credit extension to allow your end clients to trade larger amounts, leveraging their cash margin, monitoring and managing risk coverage in real-time.

Granular client controls
Firm and last look pricing
Multiple risk routing rules
Margin credit module

Augment your risk management using rules that are configured by users. Automate flows and optimize execution avoiding excessive market impact. Protection mechanisms ensure data is sanitized before granular control of client liquidity, pricing, and risk is achieved via the configuration of specific rules. You can hedge risk via auto/manual/algo execution and adjust auto/manual hedging rules based on book/s inventory.
