NYSE Liffe ( is one of the world’s largest derivatives exchanges with 4.5M contracts being traded on an average day, with a notional daily turnover of €470bn. The trading is fully electronic with many participants trading at high frequency, taking advantage of the liquidity offered by the exchange. A significant amount of this trading uses algorithmic signal generation methodologies. To support these activities, the exchange offers cutting edge technology with its UTP platform, supported by 200 research and development staff.

This talk will cover the basics of the products offered by the exchange and then go onto look in detail at the exchange matching engine and its role in the price discovery process. It will then go onto examine how an understanding of the price discovery process can lead to the development of prediction algorithms.
