TT adds KRM22 Risk Manager tool for brokers, FCMs, and traders

Rick Steves

“This specialized risk service, available exclusively on the TT platform, is the culmination of four years of developing the next generation of market risk services on KRM22’s Global Risk Platform.”

Trading Technologies has announced it is making the KRM22 Risk Manager available to customers on the TT platform.

The provider of professional trading software, infrastructure and data solutions will leverage KRM22’s real-time post-trade risk service to significantly enhance the risk toolset available for futures commission merchants (FCMs), brokers and traders.

Margin and analytics on existing positions and open orders

KRM22’s Risk Manager features a risk scoring system that helps users instantly assess real-time margin and liquidity, thus creating a new way for futures and options on futures traders to generate alpha under the most volatile market conditions.

The offering currently covers margin on existing positions and provides a full range of analytics behind those positions, including the ability to anticipate end-of-day margin.

In H1 2023, TT will add functionality for margin on open orders, giving the brokerage community serving firms and individual traders new tools to manage risk at the time of the trade.

Jason Shaffer, TT EVP Product Management, said: “We continue to execute on our strategy to enhance the value we bring to customers on the TT network. This latest step fulfills the commitment we made earlier this year to bring powerful KRM22 risk tools into our platform.”

Stephen Casner, Chief Executive Officer at KRM22, said: “This specialized risk service, available exclusively on the TT platform, is the culmination of four years of developing the next generation of market risk services on KRM22’s Global Risk Platform. Allowing TT users real-time margin analytics across multiple exchanges with multiple margin methodologies will equip TT users to be prepared to meet the latest challenges facing futures and options traders today and well into the future.”

SOD and intraday margin calculations and stress results

KRM22 Risk Manager now delivers exchange margin and stress calculations for traders and risk managers on the TT platform, including start-of-day (SOD) and intraday margin calculations and stress results that update with each position change.

SOD and intraday margin calculations include Initial Margin, Maintenance Margin, Net Option Value (NOV), Credit Allowance/Margin Ratio, and Margin Risk Score.

The tool’s granular visibility into exchange margin values throughout the day at the commodity code level gives traders and brokers the ability to determine margin concentration and better understand when they are approaching margin and credit limits, and offering FCMs the capability of setting alerts to trigger on predefined margin and credit limits, along with other risk-reduction tools.

Stress risk calculations provide independent risk checks and include standard deviation formulas and 20% volatility shocks to options positions at each standard deviation point, worst-case maximum loss outcomes and appropriate risk offsets in stress calculations on related instruments as well as a credit allowance/stress ratio and stress risk score.
