Replacing a C++ front end application with high performance JavaScript

Over the last two decades, Trading Technologies’ legacy platform, X_TRADER®, set the standard for professional trading platforms. In 2012, despite the undisputed success of X_TRADER, Trading Technologies made the bold decision to develop TT®, the first trading platform to utilize a hybrid-cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model. By leveraging Javascript, TT pushed the limits of financial technology and secured its rank as the world’s fastest commercially available futures trading platform.

In April 2017, TT further demonstrated their commitment to innovation with the launch of TT Desktop, a front-end application that delivers best-in-class performance and access to industry-leading functionality across the largest, most complex workspaces. Learn how TT leveraged Javascript to develop the TT platform – and shatter industry misconceptions about HTML5-based trading applications.
