In this new publication on the current state of HTML5, Patrick Myles examines its strengths and weaknesses and discusses strategies for dealing with these. Picking up where Paul Caplin left off in 2012: The Year of HTML5, this fact-filled overview looks at the realities of implementing projects using this ubiquitous new technology.
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 is proud to be the lead sponsor for the Asia Pacific Trading Architecture Summit held at the Regent Hotel in Singapore on June 27.
Patrick Myles, Caplin CTO, will present a white paper titled “HTML in 2013 – Where now?”
Caplin’s booth will feature the latest FX Motif, Bladerunner and Multi-Asset trading solution.

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?

At Caplin we are involved in single-dealer platforms (SDPs) touching many asset classes across the OTC and exchange traded space. The biggest single asset class we see is cash FX – many banks are rolling out offerings in this area right now. But we are also seeing increasing interest from institutions who want to provide niche Structured Products offerings, and I think this is a real sweet spot for delivering innovative SDPs.
By way of background, there’s a feature in Structured Products magazine, which sadly requires a full subscription to read it (trial subscriptions don’t work): Structured Products and Single-Dealer Platforms – Why?
