EBS has reported a strong start to the year, with Jan 15 vols +23.7% at $129.6bln/day, some 48.1% up on Jan 14.
The increase was driven in part by the increased volatility seen in the wake of the SNB decision to let the CHF appreciate against the Eur, which according to sources saw EBS volume that day nearly triple to $300bln. EBS volumes have now almost doubled compared to the low of $69bln/day seen in Apr 14.

Just seen this very nice, (retail) Options App called Optionsapps, it’s simple and easy to use and built in HTML. Worth a quick look using their free for life sign up.
Building structures appears easy, just click on the option series and strike and it’s automatically added to the strategy. Some nice displays – would be good to see some vol surfaces, but I am sure that’s coming, or perhaps it’s in the subscription service.

Caplin today announced a partnership with US-based OpenFin .
The partnership will accelerate the adoption of HTML5 for development of high-performance trading applications, by providing an integrated solution that combines Caplin Trader, a complete development suite for HTML5 trading front-ends, and OpenFin App Desktop, a secure application container based on Google’s Chromium open-source technology.
The partnership addresses two challenges faced by financial developers when building HTML5 applications.:
1. Many end-users in financial institutions run Internet Explorer browsers which are not HTML5 compliant, requiring applications to fallback to HTML4.
2. Native applications have traditionally been able to provide better user experience including the ability to tear-off panels, pop-up windows, deliver push notifications and seamlessly integrate with local applications such as Microsoft Excel.
The joint solution addresses these issues by enabling HTML5 applications to run outside-the-browser with the same user experience and capabilities as native, installed applications, as was discussed here in a post looking at Thick client? Thin client? Or in-between?
