Internet Trading Technologies Integrates Javelin Technology's FIX Technology into Universal Trader

FIX Messaging Enables Cross Platform Communication For ASPs

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 2, 2000-- Internet Trading Technologies, Inc. (ITTI), an application service provider (ASP) of fully-outsourced, Internet-based trading solutions, today announced that it will integrate Javelin Technologies' Coppelia FIX Engine with its core trading system, Universal Trader.

Universal Trader is a mission-critical, front-end order entry, routing and communications software program deployed by market makers and other executing brokers to their smaller and mid-sized broker dealers and buy side customers.

As increased order routing is outsourced to ASPs, it is critical that providers be in a position to communicate across industry platforms, access all pools of liquidity and ensure execution of all trading transactions. Javelin's Coppelia FIX Engine will integrate into ITTI's infrastructure to service all FIX message processing for marketmakers, small institutions, broker dealers, hedge fund managers, and prime brokers who use Universal Trader. Coppelia's proven production track record, in addition to its suite of easy-to-use development and support tools, were key factors in ITTI's selection of Javelin.

``We came to Javelin because it is the technology leader in providing connectivity for global trading,'' said Tom Joyce, director of business technology at ITTI. ``Javelin's platform provides a scaleable infrastructure that will significantly advance our overall strategy of ensuring that ITTI clients have access to the best available technology for competing in a dynamic marketplace.''

``The Internet is fast becoming the way to trade,'' said George Kledaras, president and CEO of Javelin Technologies. ``With our technology and expertise in electronic trading, we connect companies like ITTI to the global trading community and enable them to offer untold value to clients.''
