External Agent Integration
Many AIM Users have External Agents or Money Managers and have to key these trades in manually to their system for Position Keeping and Analytics. The Inforalgo CMFFi middleware can upload these trades to Bloomberg automatically thereby saving time and money as well as reducing risk.
Trade information (from single or multiple sources) to be sent to AIM is obtained from External Agents (often by flat file) and submitted to the Inforalgo middleware in a standard format. Some Agents may have a different layout and Inforalgo will, on request, map from this incoming format to the Standard Format using its Mapping Tool. End-of-day trade files containing only currency spot trades can also be submitted.
The intraday cancel/corrects are also included as long as the file format is consistent and in the same format as that provided and Bloomberg is able to accept cancel/corrects for that instrument. Next day cancel/corrects are handled in the same way as intraday.
Inforalgo’s “Extractor Module” is then used to extract the trade information from the flat files (or TCP/IP Socket, MQ Series message queue, FIX or a database) and map it into the format required.
When an acknowledgement is received back it contains the Bloomberg transaction Number that is then loaded back onto the database table.
Major Functionality includes:
- Real time operation Transactions processed as soon as received by the Inforalgo middleware
- Trade Information can be taken from multiple sources and multiple locations
- Comprehensive Viewer gives GUI client operation for transaction viewing and repair queue actions to your Consolidated Feed database. This Viewer can be Web-enabled to allow usage anywhere on a client’s Intranet
