Rithmic, LLC announced today that its front end trading screen, R | Trader Pro™ now accepts orders placed directly through Microsoft Office Excel.
In June, Rithmic announced that R | Trader Pro™ could easily create spreadsheets and stream real-time market data and orders to the spreadsheets it creates. Now, the real-time market data and orders in those spreadsheets can just as easily be used to create new orders which R | Trader Pro™ picks up and submits to the exchanges through Rithmic’s R | Trade Execution Platform™. Without the need for scripting or programming languages, a trader can configure orders to be submitted by a simple mouse click or automate the submission of orders based upon real-time data using “=IF()” statements.
For traders who prefer to write code, look no further than VBA. No longer must a trader learn a third-party scripting language or know C++ or C#. Combined with the vast library of functions that come with Microsoft Office Excel or with the use of third-party commercial indicators compatible with Microsoft Office Excel, a trader can easily implement very sophisticated trading strategies.
“The efficient interface we have developed to Microsoft Office Excel is a great breakthrough for Rithmic and the entire trading community”, said Jonathan Walden, CEO of Rithmic, LLC.
