Atlanta Businessman James Shaw Begins Trading on New Sterling Trader Platform

Another Experienced Trader goes with Sterling Trader

James Shaw of Atlanta recently re-launched his trading career utilizing the new Sterling Trader platform supported by Bayes Capital and Knight Capital Group. The unique platform will allow James Shaw to place trades for equities without exposing positions to price slippage, predatory orders or leaking of information to the market. The platform offers many other advantages.

With regard to pre-trade compliance, Sterling Trader compliance technology creates a single tool that Jim Shaw can use to manage risk and compliance across multiple trading platforms. Sterling Aggregator allows Jim Shaw to view all orders, manage trading risk and enforce 15c-3 compliance controls in real time using the Sterling Risk Manager user interface. Orders that would violate risk or compliance checks are rejected while those that pass are routed to the appropriate execution venue.

Sterling Trader offers James Shaw post-trade compliance technology through integration with Trillium Surveyor. Surveyor is a post-trade surveillance and analytics platform that uses full depth-of-book direct feed market data to detect spoofing, layering, and other forms of market manipulation. Surveyor is also used by traders and order routing professionals to review and optimize order routing strategies. Using Sterling Trader Jim Shaw can review and analyze order message data in Surveyor without any additional connectivity.

“Speed of execution of trades is vital in today’s environment” according to Jim Shaw. According to Jim: “Sterling Trader’s low latency FIX API is one of the fastest API solutions on the market today, with processing speeds under 100 microseconds and the capacity to handle up to 10,000 orders per second. This is the kind of speed that can make my trading execution competitive with the largest players in the market.”

James Shaw will be operating his trading business out of offices in Atlanta, GA and DelRay Beach, FL. According to Jim, “the Sterling Trader platform will allow me to work in any location and achieve the speed and efficiency as if I were in a broker’s office, which is much more conducive to my workstyle.”
