FlowAlgo is a financial technology company that provides a cloud-based algorithmic trading platform used by both institutional and individual traders. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, the company was founded in 2015 with a vision of democratizing algorithmic trading and making it more accessible.

Some key features of the FlowAlgo platform include:

  • Strategy Development Environment: Users can create, test, optimize and deploy trading algorithms using a visual coding interface similar to block programming languages. This allows building strategies from ready-made components without extensive coding skills.
  • Backtesting: Strategies can be rigorously backtested on historical market data to analyze performance statistics and refine parameters before deployment. Both out-of-sample and walk-forward testing is supported.
  • Cloud Infrastructure: The platform leverages cloud technologies so algorithms run seamlessly on highly scalable servers to achieve best execution. Strategies remain isolated and do not interfere with each other.
  • Exchange Integration: Direct market access is provided to major crypto exchanges through native APIs and connectors. Support for traditional assets is forthcoming.
  • Strategy Sharing: Users can publish their strategies which other members can then subscribe, copy or modify based on their needs with full attribution.
  • Affordable Pricing: Unlike most competitors, FlowAlgo has a free tier and offers cheaper pricing tiers for individual traders with no minimum balance requirements.

FlowAlgo thus provides a feature-rich yet affordable algorithmic trading solution that lowers the entry barrier. Its collaborative approach to strategy development also fosters knowledge sharing among participants.
