CQG has launched Spreadsheet Trader in response to trader and broker demand for tools to better navigate and perform in increasingly fragmented markets, the company announced today at the International Derivatives Expo (IDX) 2012.
According to Thom Hartle, CQG's Director of Product Training, "Spreadsheet Trader builds on the global market visualization capabilities of CQG's Portfolio Monitor by combining trade execution functionality with robust market visualization and analytical tools." The new interface features fully integrated depth-of-market trading functionality, enabling order execution through CQG's network of Hosted Exchange Gateways.
Spreadsheet Trader's key features include:
• Multimarket monitoring in a single spreadsheet view
• Depth-of-market direct trade execution
• Customization combined with functionality designed to streamline workflow
"The consolidated functionality available in Spreadsheet Trader gives traders a complete set of tools in one place," said Marcus Kwan, CQG's Vice President of Product Strategy and Design. "It is increasingly necessary for traders to take a big picture view to find opportunities. Spreadsheet Trader allows them to do just this and then react quickly and efficiently."
