FIA Expo, our first stop!

by Qbitia on October 28, 2016 , No comments

Due to the recent release of Qcaid Tick, the new version of our algorithmic trading platform, Qbitia goes on a world roadshow. Our first stop was at FIA Expo where we participated as exhibitors and panellist at the BYO Algo panel.

Annual Futures & Options Expo is FIA’s flagship event and gathers more than 5.000 attendees annually, including senior executives from trading firms, exchanges, brokerages and service providers.

At our booth, our professional team didn’t have a moment to spare as they were constantly demanded for Qcaid demos. It was definitely the best place to launch the new incorporation of our cloud-based trading platform as it offers wide opportunities to make valuable connections and network with professionals from all around the world.

The show wasn’t over for us when the Trade Floor closed as Marcos Suárez, our R&D director, was invited to speak about algorithmic trading at the BYO Algo panel. This event was all a success for us so we would like to thank everyone that took the time to stop by our booth to meet our team and our platform.

With the FIA Expo over, Qbitia follows its roadshow tour, currently on its way to New York. Here we will be hosting a meetup on the 3rd of November at 121 Fulton Street and we will be talking about algorithmic trading and enjoying a pleasant evening with drinks and canapés.

If you’re interested in meeting our team and Qcaid, you can register for our meetup here.

We hope to see you there!

QCAID Tick is on the road

by Qbitia on October 5, 2016 , No comments

Qbitia is excited to announce QCAID’s newest version, QCAID Tick! We will be traveling around the world on our 2016 Roadshow showing how powerful this cloud-based platform is and how it can help its users to optimize their trading.

QCAID Tick allows traders to analyse the market tick by tick with live bid and ask data. This makes QCAID more efficient and powerful than ever before and it enables users to see the quantity and the price of every trade that occurs in the market. Thanks to its live bid and ask data, users can know where the market was, where it is and where it might go. With this volume of bid and ask, users can analyse and quickly decide the next step to take in their strategies.

Qbitia’s trip starts in the four top trading cities of the globe, Chicago, New York, London and Singapore.

Tour route for the following three months:

  • Starting in Chicago, we will be introducing QCAID Tick for the first time at the FIA EXPO Chicago (19th-20th of October). On Thursday 20th our R&D manager will be speaking about algo trading and QCAID Tick at “BYO Algo” Panel. You can also come by our booth (#112) for a personalised demo.
  • Our next stop will be New York, where we will be hosting a meetup on the 3rd of November. Our experts will be presenting in depth this algorithmic trading platform and potential clients will be trying its new incorporation.
  • London is the next stop, where we will be attending the Finance Magnates on the 14th&15th of November and hosting our own meetup on the 16th.
  • Our last stop of the year will be Singapore at the FIA ASIA. From the 4th until the 8th, our team will be introducing Qbitia to the Asian market and on the 7th we will be hosting a meetup presenting our algorithmic trading platform, QCAID.

Now that you know where you can find us, if you are interested in getting to know QCAID Tick, contact our team and we can tell you more about each stop and maybe schedule a meeting.

Recapping Qbitia’s stop at The Trading Show Chicago

by Qbitia on June 23, 2016 , No comments

Last month Qbitia was at the Trading Show Chicago along with other 1.000 leading CTOs, quants and data scientists from automated trading firms, hedge funds, banks and asset managers.

The Trading Show, a pioneering event of the quant and trading sector, provides the opportunity to make new connections and showcase the most innovative technology, driving forward algorithmic trading. We see these types of events as the best opportunity to share industry knowledge and meet peers from the algorithmic trading community. That’s why this year Qbitia participated in this leading conference as an associate sponsor.

This show took place on the 18th and 19th of May and the foremost experts and professionals of the sector spoke and shared knowledge on their field. The topics covered in these conferences included automated trading, the quant world, Big Data in Finance and HPC. During these days there were also multiple meetings, networking breaks, interactive roundtables and 1-2-1 partnering sessions, bringing together peers from the algorithmic trading and quant world.

The actual show didn’t start until Tuesday, though Qbitia started warming up the previous night. We sponsored an awesome evening party in collaboration with Trading in Chicago at which we had the chance to get together, catch up and hear from big leaders of the trading industry before the show started.

After this awesome two-day show, our team went on to host a meetup at The Randolf´s Tavern, approaching topics to do with algorithmic trading. At this meeting we enjoyed a lovely evening among beers, professional chats and encounters with experts from the trading and fintech sector.

This event was a great success as it gathered a huge amount of traders interested in getting to know our algorithmic trading platform, QCAID, and hearing from our highly qualified team members. These were definitely two really productive hours talking about algo trading and solving all doubts and issues raised. It’s also great to read the good feedback received from this event, which allows us to get closer to our clients and bring accurate solutions to their needs.

Overall, we are pleased to say that these three days exceeded our expectations and we got to meet and chat with interesting profiles from the industry. It was great to catch up with all our colleagues and we can’t wait to see you again at the next one.

by Qbitia on May 6, 2016 , No comments

Thursday, April 21st was a remarkable day for all Qbitia´s team. It was the day when all our hard work, dedication and constant effort came together and was rewarded with a privileged award.

This year, Qbitia was competing at The Technical Analyst Awards in two different categories. These were Best Automated Trading Product: Strategy Development, nominated for second year in a row, and Product Execution, shortlisted for the first time. At a start it was a great honour to be in these categories besides giant multinational fintech companies. This feeling extremely intensified when our name was pronounced as winners of the Strategy Development category.

Firstly, we would like to thank our staff for their constant and professional work that daily proves to be harvesting results. The award is all yours. We are also grateful for all the support from our partners and collaborators who believe in us and in the work we do. Last but not least, we are thankful to our users for putting their trust in us from a very early stage.

Taking advantage of this post, we congratulate our partner CQG for winning the award for Product Execution, the other category we were nominated at. It’s satisfying to know that we are both growing and building a solid ground reaching our goals as a team.

At last, I want to thank The Technical Analyst Awards for considering us as contestants for this prize and recognising our performance. It means a lot for us, encouraging and motivating our team to continue working hard, with patience and perseverance, to achieve all our goals. This award is a step towards a bright and successful future, but it won’t be the last.

Qbitia gets its second nomination in a row for the “Technical Analyst Awards 2016”

by Qbitia on March 14, 2016 , No comments

We are grateful and honoured for being nominated, for the second consecutive year, as a finalist for The Technical Analyst Awards, one of the most prominent awards in the technical analysis as well as in the trading software development sector.

Qbitia has been selected once again in the Products and Software category, being finalist for the second time as Best Automated Trading Product: Strategy DevelopmentWe also reached further this year, being nominated for the first time for the Best Automated Trading Product: Execution.

Since 2011, we have been developing innovative software for capital markets and, despite our brief history, our company goals are progressing and expanding rapidly. After years of research we are proud of our product, QCAID, an innovative algorithmic trading platform which allows users to design and execute real-time trading strategies without programming skills.

Our achievements are, unquestionably, a result of a series of smaller daily accomplishments, making us bigger and stronger every day. It means a lot for us because we are aware that QCAID is growing and our objectives are coming together. We are what we pretend to be and we know clearly what we want. Nevertheless, we are going to keep working hard to continue improving and achieving new goals. Qbitia´s current aim is to consolidate our business in the U.S and in the U.K and expand to Asia in a near future.

Therefore, the announcement of our nomination for these Awards is a joyful way to start our News Blog. Undoubtedly, this is the result of our team’s hard work and it is only a fraction of what we are capable of. I am very pleased with what we have done up to now, that´s why we are definitely going to carry on and keep bringing awards home. The best is yet to come.

Luis Taboada, CEO at Qbitia
