Standard Bank is now live with a full installation of Patsystemsâ trading solution, which includes market connectivity, pre-trade risk management and the use of Patsystemsâ front-end trading platforms, J-Trader and Pro-Mark. Standard Bank will use a white labelled version of Patsystems J-Trader, which will be known as MetalsWeb e-Trader, to support its base metals business in Asia Pacific and worldwide with a direct, low-latency connection to the London Metals Exchange (LME).
Using MetalsWeb e-Trader, customers of Standard Bank can trade LME products, such as aluminium, copper, nickel, tin, and zinc, directly on the LME during Asia time. The platform provides traders with an intuitive and flexible trading screen. Key functionality includes access to multiple markets and instruments from one screen, real-time profit and loss, multi-exchange spreading and one-click scalping, protection of orders and integrated charting. More advanced front-end functionality is available through Patsystems Pro-Mark, which offers strategy creation functionality, Excel integration, sophisticated multi-exchange, multi-leg spreading and advanced order types such as Icebergs and Ghost orders.
