Interactive algos

Cortex iX employs 3 execution algorithms: Chameleon, Viper and Iguana. Cortex iX allows users to simply define a strategy based on their risk appetite and begin trading. This user-friendly experience is then augmented with a range of interactive features which will allow the client to set the precise parameters for how they want to execute.



BNP Paribas’ 4th generation of algorithms continually monitor the markets, interpreting possible market movements by employing adaptive execution technology. This allows Cortex iX strategies to achieve optimal execution. The algorithms are designed to service different levels of risk appetite. This is guided by finding the right balance of exposure between market risk and market impact.
