The Periotheus autoTRADER
The autoTRADER is a powerful trading system for fully automated intraday power and gas trading on European exchanges. It has been tested in practice and displays its strength both in supporting manual trading as well as in fully automated operation. This allows trading to be optimised and the available resources to be used significantly more efficiently, enabling energy companies to react quickly to fluctuations in production or demand.
Power station complexes or energy storage systems can be marketed optimally on energy exchanges such as EPEX SPOT, Nord Pool, BSP South Pool or PEGAS, or open customer positions can be covered as efficiently as possible, according to your specifications.
The future of intraday power trading
The close link with dynamic renewable energies has direct impacts on the intraday market. Studies show that its volatility is around 200 times higher than that of financial markets. As a consequence, trade on the intraday market is becoming ever faster and more demanding. It has become almost impossible to keep to risk limits efficiently, without the help of additional tools. By automating segments of trading, the autoTRADER keeps pace with the growing complexity of the market.
The autoTRADER takes all important influencing factors into account (production, weather, consumption, physical limitations such as load ramps for power plants, limits, etc.). A wide selection of pre-prepared strategy packages is available with pre-defined strategies and settings for all typical use cases. Additionally, the autoTRADER gives you the ability to develop your own customised strategies.
Competitive advantages through automated trading
Trade with the autoTRADER even outside of your regular business hours, or help your traders to achieve even better prices. Depending on the customer requirements, the system can operate fully automatically on the market based on the specified strategies and trading limits, without being reliant on interactions from system users.
Integrated limit management prevents transactions at extreme price settings or quantity fluctuations. In the case of unexpected market developments or other events, the system can, if required, be stopped automatically and users can be notified by email or SMS.
Unique selling propositions of the autoTRADER
The autoTRADER clearly distinguishes itself from other (partially) automated trading solutions on the market. One example is its versatile applications, from closing positions to commercialising power stations and flexibilities. Furthermore, the autoTRADER offers individual scalability according to customer requirements – from trading a single portfolio to integrated algo-trading development tools.
As the autoTRADER is part of the Periotheus Suite, it is possible to expand it with additional functional areas of the Suite like schedule-, portfolio- or power plant management.
