Fidessa, a provider of trading, portfolio analysis, compliance, market data and connectivity solutions for the buy-side and sell-side, has integrated US options trading into its EMS Workstation.
The system now supports fast trading for this asset class directly from redesigned options matrix and market depth views.
The EMS Workstation also supports users’ DMA, care and algorithmic trading needs, as well as smart order routing and access to options algorithms.
Martin Hakker, executive vice president marketing for Fidessa in North America, says: "The EMS Workstation has experienced a period of rapid development as we strive to meet the ever-growing needs of our users. The US options functionality is a key development for the product as it enables clients to trade both US equities and options from a single platform. This allows them to reduce the total cost of ownership of their trading technology, while still remaining competitive."
The EMS Workstation is a broker-neutral, low-latency trading workstation that supports equities and listed derivatives across global markets. It provides access to more than 130 execution venues and over 530 brokers worldwide and incorporates real-time market data, including level one and level two security and index data, news, charts and fundamentals.
Market data is now also available for all seven US options exchanges and can be accessed within the level two and options matrix controls.
