SPARTA PLATFORM

FOR TRADERS, BY TRADERS

‘Time is money’ may be a cliche, but in the world of trading, it’s true. Traders need live, actionable market data at their fingertips to allow them to react faster than their competition and grab opportunities first.

Sparta is a live pre-trade data and analytics platform that gives oil traders, refiners, banks, hedge funds and wholesalers access to live leading indicators with a direct impact on trading decisions.

SPARTA GLOBAL ARBs™

Gasoline | Gasoil

Live arbitrage calculations, with live margins into pricing centres.

  • Buyers: Negotiate a better price with your suppliers by knowing their blending and arbitrage economics. 
  • Regional traders/wholesalers: Don’t be blindsided by movements that affect your market. Be the first to know how your market will be affected by arbitrage movements
  • Paper traders: Have an in-depth understanding of physical flows and margins without having to invest in physical assets (tanks, physical traders, etc)
  • For majors and global traders: You are global, you have the team and the assets, but you’re depending on someone else. What is the point of having all the information and the firepower, when you cannot access it when you really need it?
