Fidessa expands trading partnership program

Fidessa’s partnership program brings third-party tools and technologies to its trading community.

Fidessa has expanded its partnership programme with the addition of data visualisation firm, ChartIQ.

Launched in September 2015, the partnership program provides Fidessa’s trading community with access to third-party tools and technologies.

ChartIQ is the latest to join the program, bringing a HTML5 visualisation toolkit to embed code-sensitive charting directly within Fidessa’s trading workflow.

Fidessa users will now be able to overlay order information directly onto a stock chart to analyse the interaction between prices, auctions and events within the trading system.

With complexity and volumes of data continuing to rise, a dashboard approach has become more important to understand trading workflow, Fidessa said.

Steve Grob, director of group strategy at Fidessa, explained the firm is constantly scanning the capital markets technology scene to uncover companies to join the program.

“The evolution of technologies such as HTML5 and more powerful visualisation and analytical techniques, are now allowing us to contextualise information right into the live trading workflow,” he said.

Integration is currently underway and ChartIQ will be available on Fidessa’s platform later this year.
