CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — FCM360, the financial systems infrastructure hosting and market connectivity company, has just added weather trading applications for commodities traders through Weather Insight as well as access to 24/7 futures and options trading, it was announced today at the Futures Industry Association Expo Chicago.
FCM360’s addition of Weather Insight’s (http://www acheter generic viagra.weatherinsight.com) Weather Dashboard, Power Trader Dashboard, Gas Trader Dashboard and Agricultural Dashboard for traders and commercial hedgers provides access to low-latency data feeds supplying key government weather forecasts and other fundamental drivers in real-time. The Dashboard also provides an open framework to create individualized trading strategies or simply use the Trading Signals already embedded in the Dashboard.
“FCM360’s infrastructure services, that include voice and order execution capability along with weather-related buy-sell triggers puts smaller traders on equal footing with big firms,” says Jubin Pejman, FCM360, founder and managing director.
In making the announcement, FCM360’s Pejman explained, “With traditional voice trading migrating to hybrid trading, FCM360 (http://www.fcm360.com) is meeting a growing need for small and medium-size trading houses to outsource the operation of their trading system infrastructure so that they can focus on their core business – client relationships, trade execution services and generating revenue.”

In addition to its datacenter and IT services, the New York-based FCM360, provides low-latency connectivity to over 50 exchanges including CME, NYMEX, ICE OTC, ICE Futures, NYSE, NASDAQ US/EU and the ability to run analytics and charting against European OTC commodities trade data.
Pejman added, “Although exchanges provide access to trading and market data they leave traders to build and manage their own increasingly complex technology solutions. We eliminate that burden with our managed application hosting, exchange connectivity, proximity hosting and IT services – and now 24 hour-a-day order execution and commodities analytic tools.”
According to Pejman, the former Vice President of The Americas with Trayport, the UK firm that developed the dominant carbon and energy-trading platform in the EU, “Our world-class datacenter environment and IT management services include life-cycle solutions such as creating technology specifications, procuring hardware and software, installation and configuration of applications, network security and managed support for all applications.”
