A new version of SuperDerivatives’ FX options system has been launched, offering several enhancements over its predecessor according to the company. SuperDerivatives cited the new platform’s vanilla options section, noting that it now allows quick pricing of many vanilla strategies and hedging strategies. It also offers better control in determining the term structures for pricing according to SuperDerivatives. In addition, the system also offers a multi-leg pricing page which enables the entry of cash flows into the system to check the efficiency of corporates’ hedging. The company noted that the system’s risk management portfolio has also been upgraded to allow users to mark options that have been expired, exercised or knocked in or out. Once this is done, the users’ overall option portfolio, as well as their spot and forward positions, is automatically adjusted.
