ChartIQ, a financial technology company that delivers software to help the finance world work smarter, today introduced its Term Structure Graph for the fixed income and derivatives markets. The new solution is the first widely available real-time interactive chart to support FICC market participants. The release expands ChartIQ into a new category of the financial industry.
For the first time, any FICC vendor or financial institution can offer an interactive, real-time data visualization solution to fixed income divisions. Users can contextualize and visualize market activity in one chart that can be customized to any use caseâ€”ranging from Yield Curve to Option Analytics. Highlights include the ability to differentiate between recent and stale data points to understand market activity, and to drill down to see a time series chart for multiple instruments.
