Caplin Systems has launched Caplin Trader, an out-of-the box web trading application that enables banks to build multi-product trading portals in FX and fixed income. The solution is an interactive web application that uses Ajax technology. It offers integration with existing transaction systems, and delivers an intuitive trading interface to users’ desktops. Customers can access Caplin Trader from any standard web browser, with nothing to install and no changes to security settings or firewalls. The solution’s drag-and-drop Ajax framework comprises a series of standard components including product grids, trading panels, trade blotters, trading tickets, product and instrument search, charts and news displays. Banks can also create their own components, customise appearance and configure the trading logic to meet their precise requirements. Caplin Trader has been in development for two years and is built on the existing Caplin Platform.
