QB Octane

A liquidity-seeking strategy designed to optimally execute when urgent completion is the primary objective. This algo is recommended for orders expected to have a strong short-term alpha. It aggressively hunts for liquidity as intelligently as possible, while attempting to minimize market impact and still allow opportunities for spread capture.
