Open Futures as High Frequency Traders
With the emergence of electronic trading, a need to process large amounts of market information and rapidly react to changes in the market arose. This led to the creation of a different kind of trading firm – a kind that uses advanced technology to do the above and greatly increase its earning potential.
Open Futures is amongst the Top 5 High Frequency Trading (HFT) firms in India, and was conceptualized along these lines. It was also the first to avail of NSE’s co-location services. Using a diverse set of algorithmic strategies and sophisticated technology, we trade securities in all asset classes, i.e. Futures, Options, Commodities, Equity, FX, etc.
The trades are made by computers, and positions may be held for merely a fraction of a second. Our strategies are dynamic and respond rapidly to market changes. With this speed and reach for higher profits comes higher risk, but the rewards are exponentially greater than traditional buy-and-hold strategies.
Our traders and developers come from top engineering institutes and have a vast array of skills in Mathematics, Statistics, Finance, Engineering, Physics, and Computer Science. We have several trading teams, each working independently – while each team has access to the firm’s resources, they maintain strategic freedom. This enables each team to perform as an entrepreneurial unit.
Each individual is encouraged to enhance their knowledge and skills, and we facilitate the all-round growth of our employees. The positive work environment and a confident, committed attitude are factors that lend themselves to excellent performances every time. Work-life balance is an important part of our philosophy.
