NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mantara, Inc., a provider of advanced ultra-low latency trading and risk solutions, today announced two additions to its rapidly expanding Catalyst® Marketplace apps environment. TrendLens from Lumineye and SURFACEwave from SURFACExchange join the growing number of applications available to traders through Mantara's open, scalable, broker-neutral Catalyst® trading platform and companion marketplace.
Designed for performance and usability, Catalyst delivers a fully extensible and customizable desktop trading environment. Its powerful front end enables traders to easily customize or create functionality to achieve trading objectives and execute strategies. Its Catalyst Marketplace provides a virtual financial apps store for research, news and media feeds, and trading tools, algorithms, order routing and analytics from brokerages and investment banks.
Newly added to the Marketplace, TrendLens provides an intuitive visual interface that enables traders to easily build, test, and execute trading strategies using multiple time frames—without writing a single line of code. Operators drag & drop components to create a strategy, set trading parameters, run a back-test using historical data, and validate the concept—all within minutes—without the need to employ expensive programming resources. TrendLens gives traders the ability to "paper-trade" strategies in a live market as the next step toward building confidence to deploy trading capital.
Also joining the line-up of Catalyst Marketplace apps is SURFACEwave, from SURFACExchange, providing the world's first fully electronic, completely anonymous central limit order book for foreign exchange (FX) options for institutional clients. SURFACEwave, offers institutional users globally sourced price discovery, liquid and bespoke trading strategies, transaction anonymity, and straight-through processing of all transactions hosted on the SURFACExchange.
Jay Hinton, Mantara's global product manager, commented, "These exciting additions further expand Mantara's EMS capabilities, and build upon the Catalyst platform's open-API framework to deliver fully extensible and customizable desktop trading environments and add to the growing list of diversified products and services from 3rd-party vendors within the Marketplace financial apps store."
