Reuters electronic trading platform
One of the early attractions for dealers was the integration with Microsoft Excel and the instant messaging facility for sending messages to other dealing desks. The flexible Kobra client software allowed for a variety of real-time and historic market data visualizations and custom analytics. In addition, it could provide real-time Reuters headlines and news. It went on to become the de facto platform on traders' desks in banks and financial institutions due to the breadth of the information available, despite the significant cost and dedicated infrastructure required.
The Xtra system was first released in , but in many ways was a continuation of previous Reuters products that included Equities released in , Dealing released in and Series released in It inherited a lot of design features such as much of the user interface from those earlier systems that were developed in the late s and early s.
Thomson Reuters began decommissioning Reuters Xtra in ,  replacing it by the newer Thomson Reuters Eikon platform. The system was designed to use private network links to Reuters to get live prices from global stock, commodity, futures, derivative and bond markets as well as foreign exchange price makers. The client terminal would connect to a local Unix server typically hosted on site by the financial institution.
The server would have dedicated links back to Reuters global network. The client software was a Windows-based application. The system was enhanced through a number of different versions over the years. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
