As financial firms pursue new investment strategies, they encounter an increasingly complex web of Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocols. Even a basic understanding of the FIX language can make the trading process more efficient.
Out of a commitment to provide all market participants with fluency in FIX, NYSE Technologies developed FIX Training. Whether you're an account manager, sales manager or IT team member, you'll get a comprehensive introduction to FIX in a one-day, on-site session. You'll receive a general overview, describing the history of FIX, its uses and insight into why it became the industry staple.
The course also covers different FIX message types, FIX engines, session layers, application layers, connection onboarding and certification processes -- as well as the latest developments, such as FIX 5.0 and FIX implementation of asset classes.
To ensure the knowledge you gain will be practical and not just theoretical, we tailor each session to address the regional challenges and asset classes relevant to your business model. For developer and IT teams already somewhat familiar with FIX, we also offer intermediate training. A deeper understanding of not just “how” but “why” FIX works will help you eliminate future roadblocks and empower you to innovate new solutions.
Even though NYSE Technologies supplies state-of-the-art FIX engines such as Appia and powerful, front-end platforms like TradeScope, our FIX Training is agnostic. Our goal is to offer everyone the tools to become fluent in FIX. We believe a stronger community makes for a healthier global marketplace, and community is built through common language.
Attendees receive copies of the slides, FIX field definitions list, FIXionary CD (FIX reference guide) and a certificate of completion.
