Observing Intraday Indicators Using Real-Time Tick Data on Apache Superset and Druid

Observing Intraday Indicators Using Real-Time Tick Data on Apache Superset and Druid

Room 129-130

The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey is primarily responsible for steering the monetary and exchange rate policies in Turkey.

One of the major core functions of the Bank is market operations. In this context, analyzing and interpreting real-time tick data related to money market instruments has become not only a requirement but also a challenge.

For this use case, an API provided by one of the financial data vendors has been used to gather real-time tick data and data routing has been orchestrated by Apache NiFi.

Gathered data is being transferred to Kafka topics and then handed off to Druid for real-time indexing tasks.

Indicators such as effective cost, bid-ask spread, price impact measures, return reversal are calculated using Apache Storm and finally visualized by means of Apache Superset in order to provide decision-makers with a new set of tools.
