OptionsCity Software, a global provider of electronic trading solutions for professional futures and options traders, today announced the release of Metro 5.0, a major update to its flagship trading and market-making platform.

Metro 5.0 contains functionality and enhancements that allow traders and brokers to manage global risk and efficiently navigate electronic markets.

"Today's trader identifies a trading edge in markets around the world, so the one-size fits all trading platform will never meet those dynamic needs," remarked Victor Glava, CTO at OptionsCity. "Metro 5.0 sits inside a flexible and scalable ecosystem that provides analytics and capabilities with low latency and unmatched throughput."

Metro 5.0 includes a Risk Command Center with macro views of portfolio risk across entire organizations globally; new theoretical pricing models, including a Whaley/Ju-Zhong hybrid model, which reflects trading characteristics across global markets; Excel integration for auto-export of trade data; a Request For Quote HotList, which enables traders to set alerts based on personalized and defined criteria; and a Bumped Risk option displaying skew-adjusted theta and vega visualization.

OptionsCity also enhanced its broker offering to include a Trade Account Wizard, in which users can quickly switch trade accounts on all widgets, utilizing labeling and color customization for fast identification. Metro 5.0 also allows brokers to execute cross-trades and interact via Instant Messenger with Over-The-Counter market information in a real-time environment.

The release of version 5.0 underscores OptionsCity's commitment to providing its customers with cutting-edge technology to develop and test strategies and trade global markets.

In addition to the software enhancements, OptionsCity recently launched OptionsCity Hosting, a global infrastructure with proximity and colocation hosting in Chicago, New York, London, Frankfurt and Aurora.
