Our Algos

Benchmarking algos

An algorithm that targets the time weighted average price (TWAP) benchmark and strives to minimize slippage against it.

An algorithm that targets the volume weighted average price (VWAP) benchmark.

This algorithm participates in the market passively based on the percentage of historical volume (POHV) in the traded currency pair.


Execution optimisation algos

A passive liquidity providing algorithm that will never cross the mid-price.


An algorithm meant for urgent but smart execution.

The Sweep algorithm uses the smart order routing logic to take liquidity aggressively. Sweep gathers all the available liquidity from firm and last-look ECNs. These sources are evaluated dynamically by the algorithm to find an optimal allocation between the available liquidity sources.

Article 2: The rise of FX algos at Profit & Loss

The Profit & Loss Scandinavia event gathers the Scandinavian FX community and outlines themes, topics and FX products that are surfacing in the industry. This was the 6th annual event this year held in Stockholm. Participating as a panelist was Nordea Market’s very own Niklas Jahnsson. We caught up with the Algo Quants and Insights expert to learn more.

Article 3: Learnings from BIS
Bank for International Settlement (BIS) released their report on monitoring of fast-paced electronic markets in September 2018. The report takes an outset in the fact that Foreign Exchange markets have undergone significant structural changes in recent years.
