4th Story Boosts Automated Analytics and Signal Activation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - 4th Story announced a comprehensive new set of features and enhancements for automated analytics and signal activation. Traders and strategists can now easily set the system up to monitor vast combinations and permutations of analyses for high-value opportunities, especially those that do not present themselves very often, and then have the system automatically put positions on and manage them.

Packaged in 4th Story's new 4S.White Sandstm module, the functionality includes:

  • The capability to operate and monitor an immense number of security/analyzer variations simultaneously for trading opportunities, market intelligence, pro-active alerts, etc.

  • A large selection of pre-built analyzers. Custom analyzers are easily created by drawing on the deep library of 4th Story's existing indicators or developing bespoke computations

  • Intuitive GUIs and scripts for configuration and operation by non-developers

  • Fully automated 24 hour operation through the trading week with a wide array of calendar and event-based scheduling options

  • Both real-time and periodic operation options to suit the nature of the analysis

  • Comprehensive market data management and scheduling, including synchronized bar generation for periodic analyzers

  • Multiple opportunities to filter results based on static parameters and/or the results of other analyses (e.g., a market trends, volatility, etc.)

  • The option to preview results and manually approve or deny filtered signals before they 'activate' and put a new position on

  • Sophisticated algorithmic strategies for automatically reacting to approved signals for single instruments or pairs, putting positions on and managing them for both risk and P&L

"This was a logical and requested extension of our best of breed suite of products for trading strategy backtesting and real-time operation," said Steve Smith, 4th Story's CEO. "Until now, traders and strategists had to cobble disparate systems together to even approach this range of functionality, never mind the challenge of operating it reliably in production. 4S.White Sands puts it all together in one robust, professional package."
