5 Features Your Commodity Trading Software Must Have

Commodity Trading Software

1.Extensive Data Coverage

First and foremost, your commodity trading software needs to have extensive data coverage. You need to be able to get all of the data you need in one place so you can immediately start performing analysis and making trades instead of wasting time hunting for data across different source sites.

2. Advanced Charting

Your trading decisions depend on cutting-edge analytics. Your commodity trading software should have advanced charting capabilities including the ability to drag, drop, pan, add studies, place limit and stop orders and cancel working orders.

Streaming chart data is also a must as you need to ensure that you have the latest data to support critical business decisions.

3. Streaming News

Commodity traders need access to actionable commodity market news and market analysis to make business critical decisions. Your commodity trading platform must have a streaming feed containing the information that’s important to commodity traders.

4. Excel Add-In

Sometimes you can’t do everything you need to in software. Using an Excel add-in can help you automate and improve your workflows and take you research and analysis to the next level. You want to be able to access all of your data in excel as part of your commodity platform software license.

Last but not least - your commodity trading software needs mobile access. What good is a platform that has the data and tools you need, but doesn’t let you access them when you need them? The markets don’t wait for anyone, so make sure your commodity trading software has mobile access!
