To create a platform that effectively bridges the bifurcated pool of liquidity in NDFs (Non-Deliverable Forwards) through a unique workflow, and eliminates barriers to onboarding, a skilled team of Developers and QA Engineers is essential.

Langate ensured regular updates, introducing new features and bug fixes to maintain a seamless and efficient currency trading experience. FIX Protocol enables the exchange of real-time information, order instructions, and trade-related messages in a consistent and standardized format, ensuring efficient and reliable communication.

The Client

Our client operates a dynamic, emerging multi-dealer trading platform designed to facilitate cost-efficient exchange of financial assets for market participants. They offer a range of trading options, enhancing profitability for users across various trading workflows. The company provides options for foreign exchange spot and derivatives trading.

The Problem

The lack of FIX Protocol automation necessitates the development and debugging of an automated system. The main objective was to enable trading through a user-friendly UI system while generating revenue by increasing earnings through commission rates. By addressing these issues, the client aimed to streamline the trading process, enhance user experience, and maximize profitability through efficient commission management.

Primary Challenges

Crafting intricate trading scenarios to mirror real-time trading, tackling technical glitches stemming from multiple systems and interface gateways, regulatory compliance, and constantly managing multiple APIs. Align testing according to FIX protocol.  

Multiply Systems 

One of the primary challenges lies in the involvement of multiple systems that interact with each other through a diverse range of languages, gateways, and protocols. This complexity gives rise to a dynamic trading environment, demanding test cases and scenarios capable of capturing its intricate nature. In particular, the Financial Information eXchange (FIX) protocol, a widely used messaging standard in the financial industry, plays a crucial role in enabling communication between different systems and needs to be seamlessly integrated into the testing process.  

Constant Adjustments 

Our client requires the capability to adapt swiftly and accurately. Through weekly releases and diligent bug fixing, we ensure a well-designed infrastructure with reliable support, empowering our client to respond effectively to market challenges. Getting onboard, wiring funds, pausing accounts can all be handled digitally, thanks to automation framework.

The Process

Langate demonstrated remarkable success in updating the admin console and developing an innovative GUI for the trading platform. The project required expertise in both technical aspects and a deep understanding of the financial domain.

  • With an agile development methodology, we swiftly iterated through design and implementation, ensuring seamless integration with the backend systems.
  • Regular feedback sessions, workshops, and user testing allowed us to align the GUI with the traders’ needs, ensuring an intuitive interface for executing trades and analyzing market data.
  • The fruitful work of the client-side team and Langate was built on mutual trust and a shared vision for the project’s success.
  • Open lines of communication and active involvement of stakeholders on both sides fostered a strong partnership.
