Android Alpha was founded by two engineers who developed an interest in options, ultimately turning this interest into a successful proprietary trading business. The firm has operated profitably on a nearly daily basis since being launched in 2008. Our edge comes from models which allow us to view the options market through a different set of lenses, and from proprietary technology we have developed which allows us to perform the vast amount of computation required to run those models efficiently in real time.

We have spent the better part of a decade building our trading business. In the process, we believe we have developed unique technology and insights into the options markets that could add significant value to a variety of potential collaborators. For example:

  • Trading firms looking to enter or expand their presence in the options markets
  • HFTs looking to combine equity expertise with options expertise and engage in options arbitrage
  • Market makers looking to enhance their options technology and risk controls
  • Data providers looking to provide a unique options feed with tighter spreads than the OPRA NBBO
