Recapping Qbitia’s stop at The Trading Show Chicago

by Qbitia on June 23, 2016 , No comments

Last month Qbitia was at the Trading Show Chicago along other 1.000 leading CTOs, quants and data scientists from automated trading firms, hedge funds, banks and asset managers.

The Trading Show, pioneering event of the quant and trading sector, provides the opportunity to make new connections and showcase the most innovative technology, driving forward algorithmic trading. We see these type of events as the best opportunity to share industry knowledge and meet peers from the algorithmic trading community. That’s way this year Qbitia participated as associate sponsors in this leading conference.

This show took place on the 18th and 19th of May in which the foremost experts and professionals of the sector were speaking and sharing knowledge of their field. The topics covered in these conferences were about automated trading, the quant world, Big Data in Finance and HPC. During these days there were also multiple meetings, networking breaks, interactive roundtables and 1-2-1 partnering sessions, bringing together peers from the algorithmic trading and quant world.

The actual show didn’t start until Tuesday, though Qbitia started warming up the previous night. We sponsored an awesome evening party in collaboration with Trading in Chicago in which we had the chance to get together, catch up and hear from big leaders of the trading industry before the show started.

After this awesome two-day show, our team went onto host a meetup at The Randolf´s Tavern, approaching topics to do with algorithmic trading. In this meeting we enjoyed a lovely evening in between beers, professional chats and encounters with experts from the trading and fintech sector.

This event was a great success as it gathered a huge amount of traders interested in getting to know our algorithmic trading platform, Qcaid, and hearing from our high qualified team members. Definitely these were two really productive hours talking about algo trading and solvingall doubts and issues raised.It’s also great to read the good feedback received from this event, which allows us to get closer to our clients and bring accurate solutions to their needs.

Overall, we are pleased to say that these three days overcome our expectations and we got to meet and chat with interesting profiles from the industry. It was great to catch up with all our colleagues and we can’t wait to see you again at the next one.

Qbitia, winners for “Best Automated Trading Product: Strategy Development” at the Technical Analyst Awards 2016

by Qbitia on May 6, 2016 , No comments

Thursday, April 21st was a remarkable day for all Qbitia´s team. It was the day when all our hard work, dedication and constant effort came together and was rewarded with a privileged award.

This year, Qbitia was competing at The Technical Analyst Awards in two different categories. These were Best Automated Trading Product: Strategy Development, nominated for second year in a row, and Product Execution, shortlisted for the first time. At a start it was a great honour to be in these categories besides giant multinational fintech companies. This feeling extremely intensified when our name was pronounced as winners of the Strategy Development category.

Firstly, we would like to thank our staff for their constant and professional work that daily proves to be harvesting results. The award is all yours. We are also grateful for all the support from our partners and collaborators who believe in us and in the work we do. Last but not least, we are thankful to our users for putting their trust in us from a very early stage.

Taking advantage of this post, we congratulate our partner CQG for winning the award for Product Execution, the other category we were nominated at. It’s satisfying to know that we are both growing and building a solid ground reaching our goals as a team.

At last, I want to thank The Technical Analyst Awards for considering us as contestants for these prize and recognising our performance. It means a lot for us, encouraging and motivating our team to continue working hard, with patience and perseverance, to achieve all our goals. This award is a step towards a bright and successful future, but it won’t be the last.

Check out the press release from Business Wire about these awards.
