Subject : ATS vs DSS

ATS seems to be using same concepts as DSS with one major difference being the ability to test the ATS rankings with PortSim which DSS is lacking. It appears to me that now DSS has become redundant. Is there anything which DSS can do which ATS can't? Do we have any use left for DSS now?

Great question. This question was the first thing I thought of when reviewing the OT2018 info webpage yesterday, no brochure yet.

ATS is a big improvement over DSS. It can do almost everything DSS does & more. And it improves all of the previous Port Sim methods with the ability to optimize trade number and size.

So far, the only additional thing DSS can do is market balancing. With market balancing, it can change your allocation settings based on different market conditions.

DSS was very useful feature marred by lack of ability to test it. Many times in the past I had requested to give DSS ranking as a "Trade Selection" criteria in Portfolio Simulation. That would have made it very useful and powerful.

Now I would go to the extent of saying that either give an option of DSS ranking as a "Trade Selection" criteria in the PortSim or completely remove DSS from OT. I seriously doubt anyone using DSS with this serious limitation after having ATS.

ATS is pretty new, & Ed & Jeff are very excited about it & continue to discuss ideas for improvements on it. Definitely expect more to come very soon. If DSS is completely made obsolete by it, we will look into removing it in the future.

That is great news. I also feel that ATS may turn out to be the most useful feature added to OT in recent year. For the first time I would recommend all the OT users to upgrade to OT2018 for this feature alone.
