QR Trade Capture Features
Rapid on-screen configuration and creation from scratch of energy transaction templates with custom fields, characteristics and constraints. Volumes, curves, charges and prices can be on different timescales, e.g., contracted capacity be monthly, and actual meter be in 5-60 minutes.
Multiple energy, valuation rules and pricing plans, currencies, units, charges, and tax rules can be embedded in one single trade. Each data can have multiple publication runs: e.g., initial, preliminary & final. The system automatically loads the best available data for valuation.
Many to many transaction cross-linking can be configured based on multiple business objectives. E.g.: hedging, physical energy linking to production or logistics, physical demand (retail and wholesale) covered by power supply or generation, themselves covered by transmission.
Business automation: front to back office custom workflow, automation and streamlining of processing. Configurable transaction life-cycle management, confirmation, affirmation, actualization and trading workflow. Pre and post-trade regulatory filings such as e-tagging.
Portfolio wizard filters and organizes transactions into multiple portfolios based on any desired criteria, such as energy type, retail, wholesale, trading hub, regions, clients, etc. Drilling down displays marginal values at different portfolio layers, and rolling-up aggregates values.
QR Scheduler dashboard is seamlessly integrated to allow the editing, management, validation, and submissions of optimal energy and reserve bids to IOSs, RTOs and exchanges, within the same dashboard. Mixed bid types can be managed, e.g., standing offers for week-ahead, and optimal bids for the next few periods intraday. Bids can be copied and pasted across multiple periods. Bids are validated in real-time, invalid bids are locked and highlighted in red, and submission is blocked until the bid is properly edited.
QR Risk is seamlessly integrated to provide analytics (forward curves, Monte Carlo simulation), and risk management functionality, market, exposure, credit, regulatory and operational risk.
