Each user can customize the appearance of MarketMap by selecting his own combination of fonts, and colors.
Quote lists and other instrument displays
Quote lists are dynamically updated and can contain any combination of Market data instruments from any Exchange, OTC provider or Broker/contributor. Users have the choice of opening a blank quote list and creating their own lists or selecting a pre-defined list from the MarketMap List browser.
An instrument can be added to a quote list by entering its unique identification code made up of the ticker or data source symbol and a market identifier. A default list of data field columns is displayed across the top of each quote list; which will vary depending on the type of instrument. Users can choose from a large list of data fields and save these Quote list templates for future use.
Users also have the option of displaying Full quote, Ticker, Time&Sales, Order Book and Page displays alongside the Quote lists and save them as their individual Workspaces.
VISTA is the MarketMap multi-tabbed service based on Composite that will display all information relevant to a particular instrument. The different views, such as Factset Estimates, Company Profile, or Performance indicators can each be selected by clicking on the TAB.
MarketMap users cannot change the layout of the Vista service, but they can change the content by dragging and dropping an instrument code into it; for example, from a quote list.
Additional information accessible for any Instrument
The right mouse button opens the door to a vast selection of additional instrument related functions or services.
The menu entries that are displayed in the right mouse menu depend on the type of instrument being viewed.
Clickon any menu entry to display the named service or function for the selected instrument..
MarketMap provides access to hundreds of thousands of Instruments. If a user does not know the Symbol ID for a particular instrument, they may search for the instrument using the powerful MarketMap Symbol Guide Service. It also contains a Stock Screener function.
Here the user may enter specific criteria to help locate the required instrument. These criteria will change depending upon the type of instrument that is being searched for. Once the selected instrument(s) are identified, they can be used within any MarketMap window via double click or drag & drop.
The Symbol Guide search icon is integrated throughout MarketMap whenever the user is required to enter an Instrument’s symbol, so identifying the right instrument is never more than 2 clicks away.
Chaining (Options, Warrants)
MarketMap can display options and warrants via a single click from the underlying Index, stock or future instrument. This is achieved by selecting Options or Warrants from the above type of menu.
The chain display can be customized to show options or warrants from a certain period or for a certain number of strike prices/periods.
MarketMap charts provide the user with an overview of the historical price development of any particular instrument. The length of the price history displayed varies according its data source and the amount of time that the instrument has existed.
Users can modify the chart type, superimpose technical indicators and other instruments for comparative purposes and annotate the charts using the drawing tools. A cross-hair pointer and Infobox show all relevant values for any point in time.
Chart Overlays & Studies (Technical Indicators)
MarketMap Chart provides a variety of technical indicators which, depending upon their type can be attached to or overlaid on the main charts (such as MACD, RSI, Moving Average, Stochastics, etc.).
It is also possible to create Overlay Charts for comparison of multiple instruments.
MarketMap users have access to local and international news services; all updating in real-time. These include DJ News award winning news services.
Another choice from the Details submenu is Estimates thatincorporates data from the FactSet Consensus Estimates database;- which covers up to 18 different consensus-level estimate types for over 20,000 companies across 55 countries as collated by Factset.
These estimate values are included as additional fields within the exchange based Equity instruments, making it a simple task to use MarketMap to display the latest estimates for a specific company, or to view the forecasts for a list of companies by adding these Factset provided fields as columns within a quote list.
FactSet Estimates data can also be added to Chart displays.
MarketMap has integrated context sensitive calculators for yield, price or “greeks” calculations on any Derivative or Bond instrument.
MarketMap supports audio, visual and email alerts that are activated whenever any numeric Field (e.g. price) content moves outside of a pre-defined range.
Upper and lower limits can be specified in absolute or percentage terms and can be displayed on TIC charts.
Alerts can also be set on News Headlines, so the User can be alerted whenever a specific keyword, News code or Company is referenced within a breaking news story.
If required, Global Alerts can be set up, which means that MarketMap will continue to monitor the user’s alerts, even if they are not logged in. The user will be alerted by email, containing the values or news story text, whenever an alert is triggered.
