CHALLENGE & SUCCESSES

 

  • Feed Capturing and set-up various kinds of notification alerts to ensure bad feed, service failure and untoward incidents are kept at bay.
  • HLOC (High, Low, Open & Close) data calculation from tick data and setting up automated infrastructure to support the application.
  • Enabling the system with various ways of processing, day processing, selective processing, single currency & strategy processing and reprocessing of the history data.

Initially the application just had a daily & fixed time based frequency processing infrastructure, but as the solution evolved we faced the need to enable the application with Single Currency & Single Algorithm processing to handle exceptions if any, individually without impacting or affecting the other currency data or information. Further the application was integrated with exchange wise setup to handle processing of symbols under one exchange.

Tracking and analysis of the validity of the various alerts, entry condition, profit target hit condition, stopped out alerts etc.

Sigma Infosolutions formulated an approach to test and validate the correctness of the application with different data points.
