Following its launch in the US in April, Moneyline Telerate is preparing to ship an international version of its new browser-based market data platform, WebStation.
The WebStation product is a thin client application aimed at wider dissemination of floor-level market data and analytical services.
Market coverage includes benchmark market pricing, security offerings, news, commentary, and research. Users can access a complete menu of selectable data objects and applications, intuitive drag and drop capabilities, user-configurable windows charting and analytics. Features include scrolling news, dynamic pop-up windows, page tear-off, bookmarking of favorites, and a user-customisable quote monitor.
"Our customers in Asia have been demanding thin client applications that provide full access to market data off the trading floor," says Carl Valenti, managing director of Asia Pacific for Moneyline Telerate. "And, since the global version of WebStation can be tailored to different languages - be it Japanese, Korean or Chinese - traders are able to interact with trading systems and their market data application in a familiar context."
Doug Jeffrey, managing director of EMEA for Moneyline Telerate, says WebStation's portability and ease of access has great appeal in Europe, answering the trader's need for continuing market data services while off-floor.
The recommended system configuration for WebStation is Internet Explorer 5.5 or better. The product will be available in Asia Pacific and Europe beginning in July of this year.
