Bellwether is a proprietary trading firm active in multiple Indian and U.S. exchanges across different segments - cash equities, options, and futures. Using quantitative trading strategies and leveraging other automated trading technologies, we are able to distinguish ourselves and generate alpha in all market conditions. Today, Bellwether is a team of expert traders, researchers, and developers who are passionate about emerging technologies and are always looking for new opportunities.
To ensure the highest amount of alpha creation, our team of traders, developers, and researchers follow a thorough process from ideation to execution when developing a strategy. After identifying a new trading idea based on research papers, journals, and credible trading articles, we model and rigorously backtest data to guarantee the idea’s alpha-generating potential. Once the soundness of an idea is validated, we optimize and identify other exchanges where we can execute these strategies.
Bellwether is currently active in multiple Indian and U.S. exchanges across three main segments: cash equities, options, and futures. On Indian cash equities, options, and futures exchanges in particular, we have been running market-making as well as mid and high frequency trading strategies since 2013. We also deploy other proprietary, frequency-based trading strategies in global equity markets, most notably in the United States. Today, the international equity exchanges we are plugged into include the NSE, BSE, SGX, DGCX, NYSE, NASDAQ, and more.
Where there is volatility, there is opportunity. We are currently working closely with our network to identify new trading opportunities and generate alpha across different global cryptocurrency exchanges. Today, we are running some basic arbitrage trading strategies on multiple exchanges, including Binance, Bithumb, Poloniex, Bitrex, Bitfinex, and more. We are looking to expand this operation in the months ahead.
