Trading Technologies Launches New Equalizer(TM) Order Entry Tool
_TRADER(R) Pro Plug-in Application Features Extremely Small Footprint; Allows for Trading Multiple Contracts in One Window
CHICAGO, Sept. 19 /-- Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT) today announced it has released Equalizer, a new order entry tool that displays market depth in a unique space-saving horizontal fashion. Equalizer, which functions as a plug-in application within the X_TRADER Pro futures trading platform, combines an extremely small footprint with a static price ladder, single-click order entry and horizontal market depth display. It supports a range of functionality and features that appeal to professional futures traders and brokers:
-- Quickly view and trade many contracts
-- Display and re-center prices around Net Change to "draw the curve"
-- Drag and drop orders from one contract to another
-- Organize contract groups onto different tabs and display hundreds of contracts per tab
-- Enter virtual and OrCA orders comprised of many orders across various contracts
-- Display a quantity indicator to view trends in the bid and offer quantities
-- Choose between two viewing modes: Depth view, which displays horizontal depth, and Traditional view, which is similar to TT's traditional Market Grid with a pop-up vertical depth window
-- Link the right-click quantity to the contract's net position or total net position
"Screen space is extremely valuable to traders, but functionality is equally important. Equalizer combines considerable functionality with a very small footprint. Our customers can use Equalizer to execute orders on multiple products from a single full-featured window. We expect Equalizer will have strong appeal to traders and brokers," said Harris Brumfield, TT's CEO.
