Easyscreen Ltd, a leading solutions provider to professional traders, has confirmed connectivity of its Easy Active Trade platform to London Metal Exchange (LME).
Easyscreen's Easy Active Trade platform was one of the first systems to connect to LME in 2006, when it became the adopted technology of the highly successful Marex branded E-Trader platform.
Easy Active Trade combines user-friendly design and ease of use with comprehensive trading functionality for all outrights and carries including:
- Advanced and complex order types
- Good till cancelled and stop limit orders
- Custom spread trading
- FIX connectivity
- White labelling (including a Chinese version)
Easy Active Trade also provides dynamic "Buying power" pre-trade risk management based on continuous real time calculations of available equity using full SPAN margin calculations. This effectively eliminates the need for risk management departments to continuously recalculate and monitor lot limits for every contract, a time-consuming burden.
Firms can connect to LME either by hosting Easy Active Trade and the LME trading gateways themselves or via Easyscreen's fully managed hosting solution, EasyXchange, which offers high speed connectivity to all major European and US derivatives exchanges.
Gary Ball, Easyscreen CEO, said "Easyscreen has been at the forefront of innovative design and functionality specific to LME trading since the introduction of LMEselect in 2006. We look forward to further increasing access to these markets through our continued emphasis on innovation, ultra low latency and enhanced algorithmic capabilities."
Martin Abbott, LME CEO, said "We are delighted to confirm Easyscreen as an approved independent software vendor. This will further increase the accessibility for users to trade LME non-ferrous metals, steel billet, plastics and minor metals futures contracts on LMEselect."
