Looking for Info/Threads on Auto Trading&Data Errors

  1. How do you make your Auto system guard against any "fat finger" type trades or bad prints?

    I was searching the forums but unable to find anything.

    Please let me know your feelings on this issue and if there are any prior threads on this topic!!

    Thanks a bunch!
  2. Here is a thread on stuck quotes

    In general, I've never had a single "fat fingered" quote on any feed.. many times a day though, the best gets deleted and i dont receive the new best quote for another second or so and it creates a spurious outlier somtimes 50 cents fro the best and is immediately fixed.

    A simple filter th remove any quotes that jump some threshold above the last is fine for that.

  3. maxpi


    Basically you probably want to look for a confirming tick before firing off an order.
