CMS WebView will provide SunGard Data Management Solutions with a data feed of historic tick data from the London Metal Exchange (LME), International Petroleum Exchange (IPE), London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (LIFFE), New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), Commodity Exchange Inc. (COMEX) and New York Board of Trade (NYBOT).
Bob Antell, chief executive of CMS WebView, commented, "The rapid development of algorithmic trading applications has brought to the fore the need to have easily accessible, tick-by-tick trading data for back testing of new trading strategies. The combination of the FAME Energy Data Service and our TDI Data Feed will help to provide exactly this capability. The TDI Data Feed uses a single protocol to feed tick data from a number of exchanges around the world into SunGardâs FAME Time Series Database."
"SunGard recognizes that with recent developments in modern trading techniques, market participants have a requirement for increasing volumes of clean, accurate, and timely historic tick data. Weâre continually integrating new sources of content to widen the range of energy data available through our applications," added Emma Garvey, energy data product manager at SunGard Data Management Solutions. "The decision to add historic tick data from CMS WebView came in response to a requirement from one of our larger investment bank customers. After conducting some research as to the availability of this data, CMS appeared to be one of the few providers with a central source for historic tick data from a number of worldwide commodities exchanges."
CMS WebView data will be made available through SunGardâs energy data offerings, including EnergyScope, a Web-based energy data desktop that offers advanced analytics for risk management, marking to market and many forms of market analysis.
