Raptor Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA)
TCA is a broadly defined as the planning, monitoring and measurement of trade execution to ultimately lower the cost of trading. Raptor continues to develop the tools needed for a successful TCA; those tools are categorized as Pre-trade, Intraday, and Post-trade.
Pre-trade analysis consists of forecasting price appreciation and market impact, as well as timing risk for the specified strategy, then evaluating and selecting strategies consistent with the investment objective.
Intraday analysis is intended to ensure that execution strategies are performing within expectation, measure progress against benchmarks, and explain any deviations.
Post-trade analysis is the report card of execution performance. It consists of two parts: measurement of costs and evaluation of performance at the broker, trader, and algorithm level.
Raptor TCA recognizes that the analysis of fills (street trades) leads to great insight. The evolution of TCA from order to trade analysis closely examines trading endpoints with a posture to determine venue execution quality, which in turn feeds into routing policies.
