Today marks the debut of Trading Technologies’ official corporate blog, Trade
Talk. On behalf of my colleagues, I’m excited to have another way to
communicate with our global community of customers, partners, employees and
others who have taken an interest in TT.
Who You’ll “Meet” Here
All of our product managers will write for Trade Talk. They are the folks who
lead the evolution of our product line on a day-to-day basis. They know our
software and the markets we serve inside and out, and they’ll provide our
readers with interesting content and commentary regarding a broad swath of
topics. We think you’ll enjoy hearing from them.
What You Can Expect to Find
We’ll write regularly about TT’s software, of course. We’ll offer “tips and
tricks,” introduce new features and products, explore existing capabilities and
present interesting use cases to help our customers best leverage our platform.
But we also plan to elevate the discussion beyond TT-centric topics and examine
key issues facing our industry. If something important happens in our world,
you might find us offering an analysis or opinion here.
Given that the range of topics we plan to discuss is wide-ranging, we hope
Trade Talk will become a place you’ll visit regularly for provocative content,
even if you’re not a TT customer—or, for that matter, not a trader. That
If You’re a Trader
Traders in particular will find valuable content here, especially if they use
our X_TRADER® order-entry platform and related software.
Among the products we’ll cover frequently is ADL™, a truly revolutionary DIY programming platform for automated trading
that launched in March. ADL enables programmers and non-programmers alike to
develop, test and deploy automated trading strategies in hours or days rather
than weeks or months through an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Many of our
customers tell us ADL is the most exciting product to hit the market in years.
We plan to present some of their stories here as we tell you more about ADL.
We’ll also talk about new and “coming soon” initiatives including X_TRADER’s
new Order Staging functionality, the recently released TT API, the upcoming connection to Eris Exchange and some pretty unique enhancements to our charting and
analytics application, X_STUDY®.
And we’ll be telling you soon about our forthcoming MultiBroker functionality,
which will allow clients to enter and route orders to multiple brokers and
markets from a single X_TRADER workstation with the simple click of a mouse.
Given the current economic environment and the trend towards broker
diversification, we’re confident our clients will quickly embrace MultiBroker.
As we move into beta testing and get closer to launch, you can expect to see
MultiBroker become a popular topic.
From time to time, we’ll share our news releases here. In fact, this week we
had the pleasure of announcing that TT was named “Professional Traders ISV of the Year” at the FOW Awards for Asia. This
award is quite meaningful to us because it comes from the traders themselves.
We are very grateful for the recognition.
As you read Trade Talk, bear in mind that we’d like to hear from our readers.
