Software to assist in trade surveillance

market and trade surveillance

With the advent of computer technology and its advancement to what it is today, pilferage and malpractices are at its helm in on-line trading. The positive side of technology is misused in any field by unscrupulous elements, turning it to impact negatively and computer technology is no exception.

Therefore, spoofing and layering in a layman’s eyes is jacking up the price of a particular company share by raising massive sale order. The market price is ballooned up by raising sale orders of this share for a higher price.

This software includes the following alerts designed to meet the needs of introducing and executing brokers:
