  • Patent number: 8930737
    Abstract: Provided is a method in a control circuitry controlling the operations of a central processing unit, CPU. The CPU is associated with a nominal clock frequency. The CPU is further coupled to an I/O range and configured to deliver input to an application. According to the method, the control circuitry controls (110, 150) the CPU to poll the I/O range for input to the application. The control circuitry also monitors (120, 160) whether or not each poll results in input to the application and adjusts (140) a clock frequency at which the CPU operates to a clock frequency lower than the nominal clock frequency if a pre-defined number of polls resulting in no input is detected (130). A control circuitry and a central computer server of an automated exchange system are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20140297504
    Abstract: Data transaction request message information associated with a user, a first limit parameter associated with the user, and a second limit parameter associated with the user are stored in memory. A processing system calculates, at a first time, data transaction requests associated with the user and a transactional rate parameter associated with the user based on a relationship between the data transaction requests associated with the user and the second limit amount parameter. Data transaction request messages received from the user between the first time and a second later time are monitored. The transactional rate parameter is adjusted based on data transaction requests associated with the user received between the first and second times. A transactional limit parameter is calculated using the data transaction requests associated with the user, the transactional rate parameter, and the first limit parameter.

  • Publication number: 20140172663
    Abstract: A derivative trade order at a home marketplace is routed to an away market place having a better price for a counter position to the order where it is executed. The executed order triggers creation of a “balance derivative trade” at the home marketplace to balance at a home clearing house the away trade. The home clearing house uses the balance derivative trade to create derivative positions of the balance derivative trade and informs a balancing clearing entity which manages the balance derivative trade obligations. The balance derivative trade order account permits netting and reduced margin benefits for the trading participant. A dual derivative exercise operation allows balance derivative positions to be performed in one day to reduce overnight risk for the clearing entity.

  • Patent number: 8666878
    Abstract: In automated exchange system, a matching unit is supplemented with a calculation unit and a global memory accessible by both the calculation unit and the matching unit. This computer architecture makes it possible to perform some of the calculations related to the volume and/or prices of the baits needed in the matching to be performed in advance. The matching process uses the values resulting from the pre-calculation when needed, and since no or few calculations are done in the matching unit, the process of matching combination contracts can be performed at a higher rate, thereby significantly improving the performance of the matching process. The provision of one or several calculation units makes it possible to perform very complex calculations since many calculations need not be performed in real time.

  • Publication number: 20140040112
    Abstract: Technology is presented that more efficiently calculates a worst case margin requirement for a particular order. The calculated worst case margin requirement is compared to pledged collateral for a particular order to determine if the margin is above the pledged collateral amount. If the calculated worst case margin requirement exceeds the pledged collateral, then the order is not processed (i.e., matched). In determining the worst case margin requirement, several factors may be taken into account including, but not limited to, a scanning risk, an intermonth spread charge, and/or a delivery month spread charge.

  • Publication number: 20130304846
    Abstract: A method of processing exchange system trading data is disclosed. In one embodiment, the method comprises receiving an order data message from a matching engine of an automated exchange. The order data message has first data format and it also comprises identification information associated with a trading entity. The received data message is then converted into a new data message of a new data format, which is different from the data format of the received order data message. Also, the trading entity from which the received order data message is originating is identified. Subsequently, the new data message having the new data format can be transmitted to a plurality of client devices associated with the identified trading entity. This may allow for all, or at least a majority of client devices, of the identified trading entity to get an overview of the total order activity of the identified trading entity.

  • Patent number: 8560424
    Abstract: In automated exchange system, a single matching unit is supplemented with a calculation unit and a global memory accessible by both the calculation unit and the matching unit. Such a computer architecture will make it possible to perform some of the calculations related to the volume and/or prices of the baits needed in the matching to be performed in advance. The matching process is able to use the values resulting from the pre-calculation when needed, and since no or few calculations are done in one of the most critical parts of the system, i.e. the matching unit, the process of matching combination contracts can be performed at a much higher rate. Hereby the performance of the matching process will be significantly increased. The provision of one or several calculation units will make it possible to perform even very complex calculations can be performed since most calculations need not be performed in real time.
