Back to all announcements


Misys Securities Trading Systems (Misys) continues to deliver significant improvements to its front office suite of products. Most importantly, the latest release of Market Trader is now integrated with Market Watch, Misys' real time, multi-market trading room data information integration and distribution system. In addition to support for the London Stock Exchange and Xetra, Market Trader offers trading, position keeping and order management support for all Euronext exchanges. The new version also supports connectivity to the London Stock Exchange RSP Gateway and full function wave trading capabilities.

The new version of Market Trader integrates market data information components within the Market Trader display. These components are able to display news and pricing information from any of the supported market data feeds including Reuters and Moneyline Telerate. In addition, filters can be applied to sectors, or specific instrument lists enabling the configuration of the data screen to the needs of the individual user.

This integration of real time market news and financial data display and exchange trading capabilities within a single workstation provides users with a highly functional tool for both monitoring and participation in the markets.

In parallel to these enhancements, Misys is developing data feed handlers to use independent vendor supplied data as a source for both market data (via Market Watch) and trading data (via Market Trader in Europe). Delivering data directly into the Market Trader order book removes the need for a dedicated exchange feed and its associated increased bandwidth requirement.

Andrew Murray, Product Manager at Misys observed that, "This development is in line with our strategy of working with our clients to provide solutions that enhance their operations. The ability to satisfy all data requirements from a single, independent source benefits the client's business as market data costs are significantly reduced. The wave trading capability enables our customers to trade more efficiently particularly in volatile market situations."

The latest release of Market Trader is undergoing implementation at two new client sites and is available as an upgrade to existing clients.
