Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • This invention relates generally to the field of operator interface processing and more specifically to a system and method for providing an operator interface for displaying market data, trader options, and trader input.
  • BACKGROUND
  • In recent years, electronic trading systems have gained widespread acceptance for trading a wide variety of items, such as goods, services, financial instruments, and commodities. For example, electronic trading systems may be used to trade stocks, fixed income securities, currencies, futures contracts, oil, and gold.
  • Electronic trading systems may have a number of client systems connected to a trading platform. A client system may include input devices, such as keyboards or mouse devices, that may be used to communicate with the trading system. In some instances, keyboards may be specifically designed for use with a trading system.
  • SUMMARY OF THE DISCLOSURE
  • In accordance with the present invention, disadvantages and problems associated with previous techniques for displaying market data, trader options, and trader input may be reduced or eliminated.
  • According to one embodiment of the present invention, a system for displaying market data, trader options, and trader input includes a memory and a processor. The memory stores market data for a trading product, where the market data includes an inside market price for the trading product. The processor initiates display of a market data section of a tile, where the market data section comprises the market data. The processor initiates display of a trader input section of the tile, where the trader input section comprises options. The processor receives a selection of a bid-offer pair for the trading product from the options, and updates the trader input section to indicate the selected bid-offer pair.
  • Certain embodiments of the invention may provide one or more technical advantages. A technical advantage of one embodiment may be that a display has tiles that display information about trading products to a trader. A tile displays market data for a particular trading product. The market data may include a bid quantity, an inside market price, and an offer quantity. The tile also displays options from which the trader may select to designate desired conditions for initiating a trade for the trading product. The options may include quantities of and bid-offer pairs for the trading product. The trader may use knobs of a game controller device to make selections. One knob may be used to select a quantity, and another knob may be used to select a bid-offer pair. Thus, the trader may use the tile and the game controller device to easily select a quantity and a bid-offer pair for the trading product.
  • Another technical advantage of one embodiment may be that buttons of the game controller device may be used to initiate specific types of trades. One button may be used to initiate a bid and/or buy at the quantity and bid-offer pair selected by the trader. Another button may be used to initiate an offer and/or sell at the quantity and bid-offer pair selected by the trader. Yet another button may be used to initiate a buy at the inside market price. And, yet another button may be used to initiate a sell at the inside market price. Thus, a trader can readily initiate different types of trades using the buttons of the game controller device.
