Fidessa group has added ChartIQ to its Partnership Program. The aim of the Program, which was launched in September 2015, is to allow Fidessa's trading community to access the latest third-party tools and technologies, and for partner firms to leverage Fidessa's workflow and distribution.

ChartIQ brings an HTML5 visualisation toolkit to the Fidessa trading community. The new partnership will embed context sensitive charting directly within the Fidessa trading workflow, adding to the range of analytics already available which include Prospector and live order monitoring tools.

Steve Grob, Director of Group Strategy at Fidessa, said: "We are constantly scanning the capital markets technology scene to uncover exciting companies that stand apart for the quality of their software and that share our values and our vision. The evolution of technologies such as HTML5 and more powerful visualisation and analytical techniques, are now allowing us to contextualise information right into the live trading workflow. We're excited to be working with ChartIQ to deliver this to our own community."

Commenting on the partnership, Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ, added: "Our partnership is not just two technology companies working together to integrate - we really have a shared vision of the future of the institutional desktop, one that will enhance the user experience and trader workflow all around."
Integration is underway and ChartIQ will be available in Fidessa's platform later this year.
