At the 2020 Eagle Alpha Conference in December of 2020, Anton Antonov spoke about index management and how dxfeed works in its design and construction.

Iceberg Detection Solution[edit]

dxFeed Solution for Iceberg Orders Detection uses its proprietary algorithm.

dxFeeds supports two types of iceberg orders: native and synthetic:

  • Native icebergs are managed by the exchange itself. All new tranches are submitted as modifications of the initial order; this means that the original order ID is preserved throughout the whole lifetime of the iceberg.
  • Synthetic icebergs are submitted by independent software vendors (ISV), whose infrastructure is physically separated from the exchange. ISVs split the initial iceberg order, submit new tranches and track their execution. These tranches are indistinguishable from regular limit orders submitted by other participants.[20]

The processing of both order types is supported by the algorithm. Synthetic icebergs are identical to non-iceberg orders in how they are processed by the exchange, so they can only be detected heuristically and relying on a set of assumptions. An unambiguous detection of native icebergs is possible.

Anton Antonov, a lead quantitative analyst at dxFeed, discussed dxFeed Iceberg Detection Solution at the 6th annual Quant Insights Conference 2020.[21]
