Phillip Securities launches new state-of-the-art trading platform for traders

Press Release   •   Jan 23, 2017 10:03 SGT

Phillip Securities announces the launch of POEMS Mercury, a cutting-edge application based platform, designed by traders, with traders in mind.

“As markets are fluid and constantly evolving, we aim to create a platform that can constantly give active investors and traders an edge in the markets. This cutting-edge platform can cater to novice investors, all the way to professional traders because it was designed to be intuitive, modular and fully-customizable. We put the user back in the driver's seat, simply put it --- you decide what information you want to see and how you want to see it.”

The design philosophy behind POEMS Mercury is derived from the need to keep up with fluid and fast-changing markets. As markets are getting increasingly unpredictable, we strive to create a platform that constantly gives traders an edge in the market. POEMS Mercury's order types for equities span over 7 global exchanges, and our fully customisable Chart View will provide the fastest and most fluid experience to our clients.

“Markets are getting faster and more unpredictable by the day. Hence, we recognise that traders require an edge in speed - speed in getting to the information they require, speed in analysing the unstructured data, speed in decision-making and speed in execution after making the decision. POEMS Mercury aids traders in achieving all of the above via an intuitive display of pertinent information, quick order entry, cancellation and amendments, as well as more than one way of getting to the function or information you want.”

The name "Mercury" was chosen to reflect the metallic element and its unique property that makes it suitable for use in thermometer to measure minute changes in temperatures. The sensitivity and expansion of Mercury to changes in temperature is synonymous with the design philosophy of POEMS Mercury constantly adapting with the ever-changing markets.

“POEMS Mercury is targeted at active traders and completes our POEMS Suite of Trading Platforms, which includes POEMS 2.0 (web) and POEMS Mobile. Client-centricity is at the heart of all we do in Phillip and the POEMS suite of trading solutions will allow us to offer a holistic solution, catering to different segments of the investment and trading community,” said Luke Lim, Executive Director of Phillip Securities.
