Powerful, Ultrafast and Easy to Use
The Stellar Front End combines ultrafast order entry with a high degree of flexibility. The front end comprises an integrated suite of applications designed from the ground up to present a rich, responsive and consistent interface.
Emphasis on Speed with Server-Side Execution
The Stellar Front End has an emphasis on speed, displaying market data and routing orders as fast as possible. Unlike other trading systems, the Stellar architecture places the complexities and workload of the trading system onto the servers, freeing the front end to focus solely on trader interaction. Stellar responds instantly, even in the busiest market conditions.
Uniquely, every aspect of the front end, from price ladders and grid view, to order book and spread matrix, is fully customisable, allowing traders to tailor their screen look and feel to that of their existing system. This minimises migration disruption and the time out of the market that is traditionally associated when switching to a new trading system, whilst the trader benefits from the enhanced performance and functionality provided by Stellar.
Stellar provides comprehensive pre and post trade risk control. The Stellar Risk system is an integral part of the Stellar architecture, analysing all order flow and position updates on a real time basis. Risk managers may set limits at a variety of severity levels, with warnings delivered via visual, audible and email alerts. The Stellar Risk front end provides the risk manager with a one-stop overview of all account activity.

- Powerful synthetic order types, including stops, icebergs, brackets, OCOs, and conditional orders. All synthetic order functionality is server based for maximum performance.
