Traders can now supplement their strategies using Cantor Market Data's AutoSpeed View. The product combines a direct-data feed from eSpeed (Cantor Fitzgerald's electronic-trading system for treasury bonds) with proprietary analytics tools.
The result of the marriage is the ability for the user to view real-time pricing as well as build proprietary models - in a range of markets - through a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Bernard Weinstein, senior managing director at Cantor Fitzgerald, emphasizes the simplicity that a spreadsheet can offer a trader who might otherwise need assistance to create models from data feeds. Without timely information, he adds, a model can't effectively track strategies and visualize opportunities. "Excel is second-nature to traders. It's easier than balancing a checkbook," he says. While AutoSpeed was released as an automated-trading tool for eSpeed customers early in 2003, AutoSpeed View is intended for a broader audience. Cantor is offering the solution for viewing without execution capabilities to non-eSpeed customers. AutoSpeed View is currently available through Cantor Market Data's live fixed-income-data feed, Cantor Direct.
