Trading has changed to be always on, highly automated, spread across multiple platforms and brokers, blindingly fast and sometimes dangerously unpredictable. The ability to monitor and control trading is more important than ever, and solutions on the market have not kept up.

RiskResponder is risk monitoring for the modern trading era.


RiskResponder monitors your trading activity in real-time, 24/7 , so no incidents slip through the cracks.

Complete View

RiskResponder integrates data across ISVs, brokers and exchanges and both orders and positions to understand the full scope of your trading activity.

Rapid Response

When RiskResponder detects behavior outside of risk parameters, it can rapidly respond to slow down or halt the trading activity.

Enhanced Coverage

RiskResponder improves the effectiveness of existing infrastructure with an open API that is easy to integrate with other risk systems and vendors.

RiskResponder manages risk for many use cases across the trade lifecycle that are not covered by current solutions.



Pre and Post-trade Risk Management

Overly risky trading behavior may not be caught until after the fact. RiskResponder checks for quantity limits, price collars, execution and messaging thresholds before each trade.

Persistent Compliance

Non-compliant trades may result in fines or suspensions from the exchange or regulators. RiskResponder checks for commonly triggered exchange and CFTC rules to ensure compliance.

Holistic Risk Limits

Traders may exceed their risk limits by trading across multiple platforms or excessive orders. RiskResponder integrates data from across exchanges and ISVs and considers both positions and order when calculating risk.

Loss Reduction

Traders or algorithms on a “losing streak” may benefit from temporarily reduced trading activity. RiskResponder monitors profitability in real-time, and can slow-down or stop trading entirely to reduce losses and lock in profits.

Kill Switch

A “black swan” runaway algo can cause millions of dollars in losses. RiskResponder can detect and kill all abnormal trading activity from the exchange, the ISV or the black box in real-time.
