Trade Visualization

Visualize the complete story—from start to finish.



As a company focused on data visualization and the creator of the world’s most powerful HTML5 charts, we know that plotting an event in time on a chart is a necessity. But for events that have a beginning and an end, we’ve come up with a way to visualize the specific time span and all of the events that occur within it. With ChartIQ Trade Visualization you can see how a given event—occurring over a span of time—relates to the market, and analyze each of its relevant data points.

Benefit for End User

Post-Trade Visualization

Post-Trade Visualization is a toolkit for firms to merge proprietary data (chats, phone logs, OMS/EMS data) and market/third-party data to see a clear picture of how their orders were executed in the markets. Slippage, liquidity fluctuations, algo performance, and countless other order dynamics become immediately apparent.

Compliance officers and traders benefit from seeing all events that occur during an institutional order, while meeting regulations like

  • Reconstruct trades – Integrate phone calls, chat histories, and emails
  • Event “swimlanes” provide visual clarity regarding the sequence of events
  • Reconstitute the order life cycle to ensure best execution
