New Product Offers Unmatched: Benefits to Trading Markets

By Staff Reports

CDA/Spectrum has announced the release of the next generation of its security-ownership solutions to financial-trading institutions. The new product provides users with an array of benefits previously unavailable in any product on the market. The ShareWatch Gateway will be powered by state-of-the-art, high-capacity servers configured to maximize system performance and stability. CDA/Spectrum understands the need of financial-trading professionals for instantaneous access to the kind of high-quality data that helps to drive decisions. The ShareWatch Gateway answers this need with superior performance at the desktop.

With the ShareWatch Gateway, CDA/Spectrum has succeeded in creating a product in tune with the current demands of the market. The benefits of the product include its integration of CDA/Spectrum's entire database of ownership information in a single application. Users of the new system will save an enormous amount of time using functionality that enables them to pinpoint sales and trading opportunities. For example, users can create their own client lists and match those lists to securities on their firm's Buy-Sell-Focus list. Accessing important names, titles and telephone numbers of contacts at institutional owners will be easier than ever before with the new Contacts Report. Users can even segment various reports based on filtering criteria such as geography, exchange or even type of institution.

The ShareWatch Gateway is available via major market-data vendors and a web browser. Browser access is provided over the Internet and through private links to the CDA/Spectrum network. For additional information about this powerful new sales and trading productivity tool, contact CDA/Spectrum at (800) 232-6362.
