The new Decalog Trader v5.0 has been developed using the latest technologies and user interface tools. Decalog Trader v5.0 is a Java-based solution that
is also available on an ASP basis. New features include support for money
markets and fixed income securities such as interest rate swaps and repos,
as well as the ability to deal with linked and basket orders. The new system also enables traders to review multiple sources of real-time market data, access Internet or in-house Intranet applications, and efficiently monitor orders sent electronically to brokers, ECNs or exchanges. All information is presented in an easy-to-use, highly visual format based on context sensitive, color-coded indicators. The new version can be customized to the trader's individual needs including blotter display, order workflow or system functionality.
