TradingScreen, the leading provider of SaaS solutions for the financial markets, has introduced a new member of its TradeAnalytics product group, the Market Surveillance Tool. The user-friendly solution can be used to monitor a wide variety of manipulation scenarios, including spoofing, flashing front running, and pinging, across all asset classes but with a special focus on listed derivatives, the company said in a press release.
Growing Demand for Transparency
The software solution comes in response to a growing demand for market transparency in the derivatives segment in particular. It will alert the users about any detected potential for market manipulation, flagging the actual likelihood of abuse of trading practices. It will also contribute to the accumulation of “an abuse library”, which features the latest regulatory requirements and updates and compliance criteria, the company explained.

According to TradingScreen, the Market Surveillance Tool is itself compliant with all regulatory requirements pertinent to trading in different asset classes and is compatible with all trading platforms in operation currently.
Timely Detection of Issues Essential for All Market Participants
Commenting on the product launch, the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Philippe Buhannic said, “”Financial institutions and Buy-side alike are under great pressure to provide market transparency and best execution. The ability to spot issues across all systems in an open manner, as close as possible from the origin, is essential to satisfy investors and regulators. TradingScreen is proud to provide an innovative tool for the Listed Derivatives market.”
TradingScreen markets trading, liquidity and investment SaaS solutions with the principal aim of simplifying the financial market by providing a single unified platform for exchange-traded and over-the-counter financial instruments. It allows its clients to customize the solution they use, by selecting only the trading components they wish to use. The major growth of electronic trading coupled with the global drive for a regulatory overhaul of the financial services industry has made such software solutions much in demand.
Earlier this year, Finance Magnates reported that TradingScreen had partnered with Object Trading, whose infrastructure technology it would use to offer direct market access (DMA) to a range of liquidity providers and trading venues.
