Black Dragon and Sol-3 announce partnership for hosted trading facility

Amsterdam, 13th February 2017: IT hosting and networking provider Black Dragon Connectivity Services B.V. and independent software vendor Sol-3 GmbH & Co. KG announce their partnership for a new hosted trading facility in Frankfurt, London and Amsterdam.

Trading companies can now use Black Dragon's flexible and customized hosting and networking solutions for European exchanges and order routing networks in combination with the well-known Sol-3 Trader trading software. Traders can also start using immediately the active trading server, which is available for various market data and order routing providers without own memberships and a minimum time to market.

The Sol-3 Trader is one of the fastest and most reliable standard trading solutions in the market providing sophisticated trading functions for equities and derivatives trading, market-making and algo-trading.

"The advantage is to offer cost-effective, tailor-made solutions to address exactly the requirements of the different traders and trading companies" says Jurre ten Berge, CEO of Black Dragon.

Trading firms can outsource the extensive installation and maintenance of exchange connections either with own exchange memberships or alternatively with various order-routing providers. They have also the choice of various options from a single trader solution to large multiple-market trading operations.

"This turnkey offering is perfect for trading firms who like to trade with a professional trading software but do not have either the resources or the dedicated employees for the technical setup and maintenance of complex trading infrastructures" says Jörg Morbitzer, IT and Support manager at Sol-3.
