RealTick has upgraded its multi-broker trading platform’s options functionality.
Version 9.3 of RealTick enables multi-legged options strategies by allowing users to interact with the International Securities Exchange spread book and offers an indicative spread montage across exchanges for better use of managed spreads. Users of the new version can also automatically delta hedge options positions.
The platform already offers real-time options analytics and volatility-based trading.
International head of sales Peter Ward said the upgrade was in response to trader demands for additional and linked multi-asset strategies aimed at increasing trading opportunities and investment returns.
He said the platform would also enable brokers to offer a broader range of markets and electronic execution services, in particular direct-to-market and algorithms in options and futures markets.
“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,” added Ward.
