Amarco Pricer

Derivatives pricer framework (indices, equities)

Using the Amarco architecture concepts and leveraging our trading room activity (design & implement indices and equities derivatives pricers), we designed and developed a working high end multithreaded trader pricing framework, optimized for derivatives pricing instruments (indices and / or equities). It can use as user interface any Microsoft facility: WPF, Silverlight, Windows forms or Excel.

  • Multithreaded price calculation for various financial instruments, simulating limited pricing resources and real time display of results as they become available

  • Feed pricing data from a WCF web server simulating the back office, on demand or refresh automatically

  • Real time feed for market bid/ask prices, using an asynchronous WCF Web service to get market prices (simulation). Asynchronous results display.

  • Calculate implied volatility for the market data using current setup of the instruments

  • Multithreaded result display using background workers in the user interface (Excel, Windows forms, Windows WPF)

  • WCF extension to trace input / output XML exchanges

  • Display user information in system tray to avoid trader manual action
