OptionsCity Selects ChartIQ to Offer Advanced Charting Functionality

OptionsCity Software, a global provider of futures and options trading and analytics solutions, today announced that it has selected ChartIQ to provide new and improved charting functionality to its entire user base. ChartIQ builds lightweight financial applications that drive capital market innovation. The integration allows OptionsCity to deliver seamless charting through its futures and options trading platforms. OptionsCity CityTrader customers will be the first to benefit from the charting functionality as the firm expects the charting capability to be added to its web-based platform in the coming weeks.

“OptionsCity is committed to providing the best possible trading experience across our product lines. Our customers have expressed an interest in seeing more advanced charting in our CityTrader and Metro platforms, and by partnering with ChartIQ we are able to offer incredibly sophisticated charting capability” said Iqbal Brainch, VP Marketing and Product Strategy at OptionsCity. “Moreover, we’re adding charting from ChartIQ to our CityTrader mobile app to ensure a consistent experience across all devices for our customers.”

OptionsCity continues to build on its leadership in the futures and options space by enhancing its product suite with new innovative features as well as launching new software offerings. OptionsCity low-latency platform, Metro, caters to institutional options traders and market-makers, while CityTrader provides low-cost futures and options execution through a cloud-based solution. Built on the same City API used by CityTrader, City Execution on Thomson Reuters Eikon was also launched last year.

ChartIQ builds powerful, lightweight financial applications that redefine the trading experience for capital market institutions, fintech firms, and millions of financial professionals around the world. Delivering the most intuitive data visualization software available, ChartIQ specializes in advanced technical analysis, trading configurations, and high performance charting. ChartIQ is based out of Charlottesville, Virginia, with offices in New York, London, and Cyprus. Founded in 2012, ChartIQ has a global customer base with over 150 firms represented. 

OptionsCity Software powers the trading, risk management and analytics needs of professional futures and options traders, market-makers, introducing brokers and financial institutions worldwide. OptionsCity’s diverse suite of powerful tools includes Metro, its flagship electronic trading and market-making platform, and Freeway, an automated trading engine designed to build, test, and deploy algorithms and custom trading strategies. OptionsCity also offers a cloud-based futures trading platform, CityTrader, with its REST-based, easy-to-implement City API for accessing futures and options market data and analytics. OptionsCity's latest offering, City Execution, allows Thomson Reuters Eikon users to execute futures and options trades seamlessly from within Eikon.
