Thomson Reuters Embeds Data Visualization Technology into Quant Trading Platform

Subscribe to our newsletter

Thomson Reuters today announced it has joined forces with Panopticon Software, a provider of visual data analysis solutions, to embed data visualization capabilities into the Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform for Velocity Analytics. These new capabilities are available both as a managed service within Elektron, the firm’s high performance real-time network and hosting environment, or deployed directly at client sites. The fully integrated high-performance, low latency platform enables firms to move seamlessly from strategy development and testing to deployment and monitoring.

Increased global adoption of automated trading strategies and competitive markets have presented alpha-seeking firms with significant challenges in normalizing, processing and capitalizing on market anomalies across the vast amounts of real-time and historical information required to power trading decisions. By integrating the Panopticon software into the Enterprise Platform for Velocity Analytics, Thomson Reuters will deliver a powerful solution that combines rich content and analytics with data visualization tools that allow clients to display real-time and historical data in a variety of visually intuitive formats.

This new capability enables traders and quantitative researchers to analyze and monitor any real-time or historical data series available via Velocity Analytics, including full-tick depth-of-market direct exchange feeds and OTC-traded instruments, structured news headline archives, corporate actions, and a complete range of custom and pre-built analytics for trading, research, risk and portfolio management, with display technologies that help them quickly identify trends and spot anomalies.

The Panopticon visualization environment allows users to build bespoke analytical dashboards and publish them for system-wide user communities, including specific workgroups and individual named users. This ensures that the displays can be widely employed regardless of individual skill sets and expertise.

Emmanuel Doe, Global Business Manager, Thomson Reuters, said: “Financial firms need a complete platform for quantitative research and execution that allows them to move seamlessly from research and simulation to executing strategies and monitoring performance and risk in real-time. By extending the Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform for Velocity Analytics with a visually intuitive display, we will enhance our clients’ ability to find and monitor their trading strategies.”

Willem De Geer, Managing Director of Panopticon, stated: “Traditional displays, spreadsheets and reports are no longer adequate for maintaining a competitive edge. Traders all over the world have been asking for tools that allow them to both quickly understand market trends and instantly drill down to get all the details. Data displays can only ever be as good as the content they show which is why our relationship with Thomson Reuters – the provider of global low latency full-tick data and analytics is so vital.”

Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform for Velocity Analytics is a strategic platform that facilitates quantitative trading from pre-trade research through to execution and trade compliance, and allows organizations to quickly launch their trading strategies in new global markets.
