Friday, 30th November 2018 – Berlin. This release features several enhancements to both the market leading ferdecTS® analytics engine and to client usability features. Many of these enhancements were customer led. “This release is a fantastic example of how we at FERDEC place our clients at the heart of our roadmap development and prioritisation process”, says Christian Endter, MD of FERDEC. “We strongly believe that by working closely with our clients, who have day to day experiences using ferdecTS® in live market conditions, we are best able to further hone our solution by applying the practical lessons learnt through hands-on experience to the benefit of all our users”.
A significant enhancement is the new, configurable Grouping function that allows the user to group or to isolate the same instrument across the venues or broker platforms on which it is traded. For example, if a particular gas contract is traded on PEGAS as well as through brokers on Trayport, the ferdecTS® analytics engine applies its market leading analysis logic separately to each instance giving Compliance the flexibility to see the market as regulators and exchanges might. Indeed, this scenario featured in a high-profile enforcement case in 2018 and demonstrates that ferdecTS® remains firmly aligned to market developments. The same principle applies at the client level where ferdecTS® may now be configured to group or isolate trading activities by desk, business units or even by legal entity. Crucially, this is not a superficial enhancement but rather is deeply integrated into the market abuse indicator and pattern calculation logic in the ferdecTS® analytics engine.
Other usability and functional enhancements include:
- Significant improvements to the speed and configurability of the ferdecTS® data viewer functionality.
- Greater user configurability for the ferdecTS® market replay functionality.
- Introduction of a MiFID II ‘hedge trade’ flag to support drill down analysis for MAR instruments.
- Introduction of dynamic parameters for the Physical Withholding monitor.
- Significant performance run improvements due to material enhancements to our pre-processing and staging table approach.
