RealTick, the leading global multi-broker, cross-asset class electronic trading platform has expanded its options functionality, providing RealTick clients with advanced execution capabilities and tools for trading in European, Asian and US markets.
RealTick 9.3 includes enhanced spread trading capabilities, allowing users to view and interact with the ISE spread (complex order) book, facilitating multi legged options strategies. In addition, RealTick now provides an indicative spread montage across exchanges for enhanced use of RealTick managed spreads. This new release also enables users to automatically delta hedge options positions. This functionality is in addition to previously available options trading benefits around US and European option trading in RealTick including real-time options analytics, volatility based trading and other broker based options algorithms.
"We continue to see accelerating multi-asset usage through RealTick. Traders are looking to increase trading opportunities and investment returns through the use of additional and linked multi-asset strategies. This package of advanced functionality is in response to that demand, providing clients with further cross asset capabilities in a single platform," states Peter Ward, Head of International Sales at RealTick. "In addition our broker partners want to efficiently offer a broader range of markets and electronic execution services, in particular direct to market and algorithms in options and futures markets, on top of their existing equities execution available to clients, " continues Ward.
"Traders are looking for a single platform which is functionally rich, integrates well into their workflow and is fully configurable to their trading needs. The ability to easily execute across asset classes with chosen brokers, monitor multi-asset positions in a single blotter and have a suite of advanced trading tools, empowers clients with opportunities for better execution performance and provides a competitive advantage in executing investment strategies across equities, options and futures markets," adds Ward.
