The Spread Matrix provides traders with the ability to select a specific symbol and expiration and have all futures from the nearest expiration through the expiration selected to be displayed in a matrix such that the bid and offer for the spread created are displayed. The window also allows the user fast order entry within a single widget for active spread execution.

Within the widget, users can easily select products, months, and trading accounts. The Spread Matrix also gives the user the ability to choose between the Implied Spread, Listed Spread, or the Best available. Color coding logic gives the user a visual representation of the execution sides of the spread legs, while the Position column displays the trader’s inventory on a month by month basis.

Play the video below to see the widget or algo in action. Metro NOW gives widgets the ability to work in a similar behavior across several asset classes or exchanges. This keeps usability consistent and promotes high application stability.

All of the variables below can be configured or modified at runtime. This gives users the power to modify their job behavior.
