eip Trading

eip Trading is in the early stages of developing a U.S. Treasury Bond trading engine. The goal is to completely automate the trade life-cycle, a process that will include market making, trade execution, risk management, accounting, and settlement.

If the project is successful, it will provide the marketplace with better liquidity at a much lower cost, driven by the efficiency of an artificial intelligence (AI) trader and the speed of today’s computers and high-speed networks.

The Story Behind the Name “eip Trading”

Leonhard Euler was a famous 18th century Swiss mathematician and physicist. His many achievements include his contributions to calculus, trigonometry and complex analysis, his introduction of functions (f(x)), the natural logarithm “e” (named for him), and his popularization of the letter “i” for imaginary numbers (i is the square root of negative one) and the Greek symbol π (pi).

Euler also derived one of the most famous mathematical equations in history:

Euler's Equation

This equation unifies five critically important numbers (e, i, π, 1, and 0)  in one elegant equation.

The simplicity and beauty of Euler’s Equation is the inspiration for “eip”. The numbers 1 and 0 are implied, since the project involves computers and algorithms, where the binary 1 and 0 are the building blocks of logic, computer science, and the digital age.

    • Alex, I no longer have access to the source code after selling the company many years ago. I believe Thomson Reuters owns the intellectual property. Good luck.
