Lime Brokerage Introduces Sponsored Access Solution for High-Frequency
Trading Firms

    LimeInside provides pre-trade controls that meet or exceed proposed
    regulatory criteria with single-digit microsecond latency

<p>NEW YORK, <span class="xn-chron">March 24</span> /CNW/ -- Lime Brokerage LLC (<a href=""></a>), an independent high-volume agency broker and leading provider of high-throughput, low-latency technologies to the professional trading community, is rolling out an offering that addresses the SEC's pending ban of naked sponsored access.  LimeInside is the industry's fastest and most comprehensive solution for high-performance, exchange co-located sponsored access.</p>

<p>The patent-pending order placement validation and market-driver platform enables trading firms to co-locate at major U.S. trading venues, without the potential for exceeding trading limits or violating other regulatory requirements imposed upon the sponsoring broker.</p>
<p>LimeInside seamlessly integrates risk controls, order management, real-time market data, and directed destination routing for the most efficient market access. A non-intrusive trading API resides directly within the client's trading environment to minimize latency and maximize performance.</p>
<p>The practice of sponsored access is subject to numerous compliance criteria defined by regulators that require real-time pre-trade risk monitoring on sponsored trading of exchange-traded equities and equity options. The LimeInside solution satisfies both existing and anticipated compliance criteria, offering:</p>

    --  Pre-trade order validation, as mandated by Nasdaq and proposed SEC
        regulations, with high throughput and minimal latency;
    --  Risk aggregation across venues via LimeInside's patent-pending
        information sharing protocol;
    --  Verification checks that prevent submission of orders to the markets
        trading limits are exceeded;
    --  Configurable checks on human error ("fat finger");
    --  Highly optimized  order management and delivery to the exchange's
        matching engine;
    --  Integration with Citrius(TM), Lime's real-time Quote Delivery System
        for multiple destinations;
    --  Patent-pending data-output shaping algorithm for low latency and
        high-throughput quote delivery;
    --  Protection of flow from hidden information leakage attacks - Lime
        Brokerage does not operate a proprietary trading desk or dark pool and
        offers the highest level of security to protect both the client
        application and the pre-order validation model;
    --  Solid reliability, thanks to Lime's redundant, scalable

<p>LimeInside is currently available for a select number of firms who want sponsored access to NASDAQ, NYSE Arca and BATS; additional markets to be added based upon customer demand and availability of co-location facilities.  The solution is quickly and easily installed and integrated at the exchange's co-location site via Lime's C++ API. LimeInside's speed, scalability, configuration and service alternatives provide significant advantages to firms operating either as hedge funds or broker dealers.</p>
<p>"Lime has long been a vocal proponent of rules preventing naked access and as an industry leader, we have created a solution that is consistent with regulatory mandates without sacrificing performance," states <span class="xn-person">Jeffrey Wecker</span>, President and CEO of Lime Brokerage.</p>
<p>"If you are among the fastest traders on the planet, you owe it to yourself to take a closer look at our patent-pending technology," Wecker adds. "Our pre-trade order validation is so fast, you will not only reduce your latency, but in many cases will see net-negative latency relative to your existing platform."</p>
