Trading Technologies (TT) has released X_TRADER 7.6, the latest version of its derivatives trading platform. The new version adds features designed to enhance functionality, usability, deployment and user administration.
“In this tough economy, traders are demanding more and more from their trading platforms,” said Harris Brumfield, CEO, TT, in a statement. “This new version of X_TRADER incorporates a number of enhancements and should give our customers an advantage.”
X_TRADER 7.6 improves performance across all major functional areas, including price updates, order handling, contract loading and workspace opening. The new version also benefits from TT’s upcoming PFX price protocol architecture, which is designed to maximise the speed of price delivery, minimise the size of price messages, reduce client interactions with the price server and achieve faster price recovery in network outages.
X_TRADER 7.6 also provides new ways to filter and manipulate the display of market data, price movements and specific trading activity.
The enhancements include, amongst others, the ability to highlight large trades and apply different filters to multiple products in the Time & Sales window of the platform; and ‘Live Only’, which, when enabled, will display only those contracts with an active bid, ask or last traded price in the Market Grid window. According to TT, this feature is especially useful for options and energy traders.
There are also advanced search capabilities to more easily locate spreads, strategies and options in the Market Explorer window.
