BOCA RATON, Fla. and NEW YORK, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — As financial industry leaders from big institutions gather in Boca Raton today through March 18 to examine the outlook for commodities futures trading, Jubin Pejman predicts: “New technology breaks the barrier for more smaller traders to participate in sophisticated high frequency trading; once the purview of large firms.”
Says Pejman, FCM360’s founder and managing director, “With FCM360’s low latency trading technology, entry costs are a fraction of what they once were,” adding, “We’re providing ultra low latency trading infrastructure to traders in the sub-$100 million-under-management category.”
FCM360 (http://www.fcm360.com) makes it possible for those with a minimal investment to trade in an environment in which microseconds matter.
This advanced technology arrives at time when financial institutions are grappling with complex financial regulations under the new Dodd-Frank Law. “Technology helps avoid regulatory issues for an industry that traditionally relies on voice trading and relationships,” says Pejman.
Interest in energy and other commodities is growing, especially among pension funds and other institutional investors. Explains Pejman, “Rising oil prices and the price at the pump have gotten America’s attention. In 2008 we also saw record level prices for natural gas, crude and sugar as well. The democratization of trading has arrived. Investors now need solutions that will allow them to trade commodity futures and navigate the new regulatory minefield.”
