âWhile there were a number of good candidates for the Best Buy-Side Commodities Trading Platform, TTâs X_TRADER stood out for its global reach, performance and functionality. The judges were also impressed by the new ADLâ¢ platform that enables traders to rapidly create, test and execute algorithmic trading strategies without writing any code,â said Victor Anderson, Editor, Buy-Side Technology.
âWe 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,â said Harris Brumfield, CEO of TT.
Some of the worldâs 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.
