Trading Technologies’ X_TRADER® Named Best Commodities Trading Platform

Chicago, IL - November 2011

Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT) today announced that its X_TRADER trading platform was named Best Buy-Side Commodities Trading Platform in the Buy-Side Technology Awards 2011 hosted by Waters Technology. X_TRADER was chosen from a crowded pool of applicants by the magazine’s editorial team and industry consultants from Accenture, The Aite Group, Deloitte Consulting, Investit and Morse Consulting. This is the fourth year that TT has won this award, which was presented last Friday at an awards ceremony in London.

“While there were a number of good candidates for the Best Buy-Side Commodities Trading Platform, TT’s X_TRADER stood out for its global reach, performance and functionality. The judges were also impressed by the new ADL™ platform that enables traders to rapidly create, test and execute algorithmic trading strategies without writing any code,” said Victor Anderson, Editor, Buy-Side Technology.

“We are honored that Waters Technology selected X_TRADER as the best platform for buy-side commodities trading. We strive to create innovative products and solutions for our customers, so impartial endorsements such as this are very rewarding,” said Harris Brumfield, CEO of TT.

Some of the world’s largest buy-side firms rely on X_TRADER for commodity trade analysis, execution, hedging, risk management and reporting. The next release of X_TRADER, version 7.11, is currently in beta testing and slated for release within the next few months. It features ADL (Algo Design Lab), a revolutionary new visual algorithm programming platform that employs a drag-and-drop building-block interface, allowing traders and programmers alike to create and deploy trading algorithms in hours or days rather than weeks or months. With connectivity to more than three-dozen exchanges in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia/Pacific region, TT provides access to more than 10,000 products across multiple asset classes, including futures, options on futures, and cleared and OTC energies.
