New York and London- Energy and commodities traders can now execute futures and options orders directly from Thomson Reuters Eikon, helping reduce the need to pay for expensive market data fees across multiple platforms without sacrificing functionality. The service is provided through City Execution, a third party app developed by OptionsCity Software and now available via App Studio on Thomson Reuters Eikon.
City Execution is integrated into the Thomson Reuters Eikon platform. Users can access spread data, futures and options, and execute trades while also accessing other news, data and analytical tools available on Thomson Reuters Eikon. Having both data and trading functionality available on one platform aims to create a better integrated workflow and eliminate the need for trading firms to pay for multiple execution platforms and data providers.
App Studio, Eikon's third party development suite, enables clients and vendors to embed their applications, content and work flows into Thomson Reuters Eikon, creating an integrated end-to-end solution. This open approach allows users access to financial apps created by third party developers, built directly into Thomson Reuters Eikon.
