4th Story Introduces Real Time Execution and Risk Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- 4th Story, a leading provider of automated trading and analytics software, has introduced new capabilities for analyzing order flow and positions. Trading desks and brokers can use these new analytics, data visualization and notification features to pro-actively address critical execution management and risk issues.

4th Story's new dashboard delivers a comprehensive overview of current working orders with the ability to overlay complex, sophisticated analytics and alerts. The system helps traders focus on key execution issues, especially across large numbers of orders, whether it is simple monitoring of algorithmic execution performance and drift from a benchmark to complex custom metrics and informative visualizations.

The system can also monitor position and P&L by account, instrument, etc. and run real time analytics on them that go beyond simple threshold breaches, such as contrasting trading behavior against historical profiles.

Combining both of these with 4th Story's market color analytics allows more sophisticated risk management monitoring, such as alerts around accounts with positions in securities that are behaving abnormally in the markets.

"The system provides the refinement and customization of tier one level tools in an accessible package," noted Steve Smith, 4th Story's CEO. Designed for quick, flexible integration, the system easily bolts onto most existing order management systems. The front end is browser based to speed deployment.
