Execution Algorithms – A Brief Introduction

Introducing Wyden’s advanced execution algorithms.

In the fast-paced world of trading, especially when it comes to crypto and digital assets, professional market participants constantly seek efficient and reliable solutions to optimize their strategies and maximize their returns – and our built-in execution algorithms can help.

Wyden’s comprehensive suite of execution algorithms empowers hedge funds, crypto funds, banks, asset managers, and boutique investment firms to navigate complex and volatilve markets with ease and efficiency. In this article, we will introduce you to each of our cutting-edge execution algorithms, including TWAP, VWAP, POV, Sniper, Iceberg, Trailing Limit, Market Sweep, and Target Position.

Discover how these execution algorithms can enhance your trading performance and help you achieve your investment goals for both traditional and crypto assets.

Execution Algorithms of the Wyden Platform


Our Time-Weighted Average Price (TWAP) execution algorithm is an invaluable tool for executing large orders over a specified time period. By spreading out your order evenly throughout the trading day, TWAP minimizes the impact on market prices, reducing the risk of price manipulation and ensuring a fair execution. With the TWAP execution algorithm, you can achieve an average price that closely mirrors the prevailing market conditions during the specified duration, enabling you to take advantage of market trends while maintaining control over your TradFi or crypto asset trading strategy.


Our Volume-Weighted Average Price (VWAP) execution algorithm is designed to execute large orders while taking into account the trading volume at different price levels. By dynamically adjusting the execution rate based on trading volume, VWAP ensures that your order is filled in proportion to market activity, preventing adverse price movements caused by disproportionate order sizes. This execution algorithm allows you to obtain an average execution price that aligns with the volume-weighted market conditions, providing enhanced accuracy and reducing slippage.


Our Percentage of Volume (POV) execution algorithm allows you to execute trades while maintaining a predetermined percentage of the total trading volume. Whether you’re looking to execute a large order quickly or simply match the market volume, POV provides you with the flexibility to adjust your order size based on prevailing market conditions. This execution algorithm intelligently balances execution speed and market impact, ensuring that you maintain control over your trading while achieving your desired volume participation.


When it comes to executing trades with precision timing, our Sniper execution algorithm is the ideal solution. Sniper monitors the market for favorable price movements and executes your order at the optimal moment, allowing you to take advantage of short-term price fluctuations. By combining real-time market data and advanced order routing techniques, Sniper execution algorithms maximize your chances of obtaining a desirable execution price while minimizing the risk of adverse market impact.


For traders looking to execute large orders without revealing their full hand, our Iceberg execution algorithm provides a discreet solution. Iceberg divides your order into smaller, visible “display” quantities and undisclosed “hidden” quantities. By concealing the true size of your order, Iceberg execution algorithms minimize market impact, ensuring that your execution remains confidential and reducing the risk of price manipulation.

Trailing Limit

Our Trailing Limit execution algorithm empowers you to execute trades while dynamically adjusting the limit price based on market movements. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, Trailing Limit execution algorithms allow you to set a trailing percentage or fixed offset from the market price, ensuring that your order is executed within your specified boundaries. This execution algorithm enables you to capture favorable price movements while protecting against adverse market fluctuations.

Market Sweep

When speed is of the essence, our Market Sweep execution algorithm delivers rapid execution by leveraging multiple liquidity pools. Market Sweep searches for the best available prices across various markets and swiftly executes your order at the most advantageous price points. This execution algorithm is particularly useful when time-sensitive execution is critical and enables you to capture liquidity across multiple venues efficiently.

Target Position

Our Target Position execution algorithm allows you to maintain a desired portfolio composition by automatically rebalancing your positions. By continuously monitoring your portfolio’s current allocation and target weights, Target Position executes trades to align your positions with your desired targets. This execution algorithm streamlines the portfolio management process, ensuring that your investments remain in line with your strategic objectives.
