KMM Trading deploys Panopticon information visualisation software

05 August 2009  |  1027 views  |  0 Source: Panopticon

Panopticon Software, the leading provider of Heatmap data visualization software today announced that KMM Trading, a Chicago-based hedge fund led by JP Morgan veteran James Gislason, has implemented its information visualization software.

KMM Trading works with a wide variety of financial instruments, including equities and options in all sectors of the economy. KMM uses the software to filter and highlight market, pricing, and other data relevant to its trading strategies. The firm uses the Treemap visualization as a filter that doesn't necessarily initiate transactions, but brings important data to the trader's attention and shows him where to drill down for more detail.

James Gislason, President of KMM Trading, said, "I employ several strategies, including intra- and inter-sector pairs trading. I'll go long one energy stock and short another, or I'll go short one basket of energy stocks against shorting a basket of basic materials. Panopticon allows me to track individual stocks and sectors, as well as spreads, more easily than I could without this tool."

Gislason continued, "I'm often following between 100 and 150 stocks. Concentrating on those numbers individually and also across various sectors is mentally exhausting and very difficult to do well. There are limits to what you can absorb, so having these visual cues from Panopticon has helped me a lot in my trading."

Brian O'Keefe, President - Americas for Panopticon, stated, "Mr. Gislason's experience with our software is quite typical. Business users most often have a bad experience with data. However Panopticon users can easily understand their data in seconds, identify trends and patterns that are normally hard to see in standard reports and make more informed trading decisions in a fraction of the time. There is no substitute for actionable intelligence, no matter what business you're in. We're happy to learn that KMM Trading has successfully integrated Panopticon into their critical real-time operations."
