GL TRADE launches MarketMap Plus to provide enhanced trading decision support

23 April 2008

GL TRADE, global provider of integrated multi-market and multi-asset solutions for financial institutions, will launch the latest addition to its market data product suite, MarketMap Plus. Providing financial professionals with comprehensive market data and analysis, GL TRADE has specifically developed MarketMap Plus to support traders in their price discovery and decision making processes. This includes a new faster link to Excel spreadsheets, global alerts for 24x7 market monitoring and the ability to create dynamic charts using Object Linking and Embedding (OLE).

In addition to displaying and analysing real-time and delayed market data from over 160 global exchanges and OTC sources, MarketMap Plus includes specialised financial data to support trading floors, including:
- Global equity ownership information;
- Economic & financial indicators;
- Corporate actions;
- Fixed income credit ratings;
- Constituent weightings

Financial institutions are demanding access to broader market coverage, enriched analysis tools and increased monitoring capabilities. GL TRADE MarketMap Plus offers them all of this and more, including peer group lists for sector analysis, sophisticated calculators and user defined fields for scenario simulations and large data capacity for market wide performance comparisons and decision support.

Robert Jeanbart, Global Head of GL TRADE’s Information Services business line comments: “MarketMap Plus is a highly competitive and cost effective solution that provides clients with all the financial market data they need to support their trading decisions. Because it shares the same platform as the other MarketMap terminals, clients can now have one GL TRADE market data solution serving all users but offering different sets of functionality and data. In this way they can smoothly manage deployment, continue to have a tight grip on costs and capitalize on an environment they are familiar with; all managed by our SMART entitlement system.”

Alongside MarketMap Plus and completing GL TRADE’s Information Services product suite are MarketMap, a professional Microsoft Windows based terminal, MarketMap Web, a flexible zerofootprint terminal accessible anywhere via the internet and MarketMap Mobile, a “go anywhere” PDA version.
