ADL (Algo Design Lab) is a TT platform that introduces traders to an interactive way of creating their own trading algorithms and automated strategies. ADL allows traders to design, test and deploy trading algorithms without having to write a single line of code. With an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, traders can use building blocks to construct circuit-like designs in their browsers. At the same time, ADL grants granular flexibility in design instead of offering pre-made strategies.
When an ADL algorithm is deployed to the TT Algo Server, the algorithm is compiled and run as if it were a traditional computer program. ADL makes algorithm design accessible to anyone, not just computer programmers. It provides safety measures (at design time and at run time) that are not available in traditional programming context, which can reduce the risk and the time required to design, create and test programs while providing a safer trading environment. What once took days or weeks, now takes minutes. In addition, by handling code-writing "behind the scenes" for the user, ADL lowers risks for traders, trading firms, and exchanges—especially for automated trading.
