Superalgos is designed for coordinated, flexible, and scalable trading operations.
In its current version, the system may be deployed in multiple machines—as many as desired—and each machine may constitute a node in a network of nodes. In fact, different networks of nodes may live within the same computer network.
For example, you may have a set of nodes running data mining operations extracting data from multiple markets and multiple exchanges. You may have a set of nodes specializing in processing indicators and technical studies. And you may have a set of nodes specializing in running trading sessions.
You may also use different criteria to arrange the network. For example, you may have a node running combined data mining, data processing, and trading operations on a single exchange or market, and other nodes running similar combined operations on other exchanges or markets.
What is unique about Superalgos is that the system keeps track of the network arrangements you create and makes sure that all components and data structures in the system can seamlessly track dependencies across the network. This means, for example, that trading sessions running on
Node X may access data in
Node Y and
Node Z without requiring any sort of configuration.
The following explanations assume that you are familiar with the basic workings of Superalgos, and in particular, of the Network hierarchy. If that is not the case, then please read the Network pages before diving into building a trading farm.
